These pics show what my foot looked like after the first surgery.  The stitches had been removed and I’m pretty sure I’d been in a hard cast for about 4 weeks when these were taken.  Please excuse the quality.

Side note:  Seeing that pin in my foot is the closest I’ve ever come to blacking out.  Never been bothered by blood and guts, before or since, but I very nearly passed out in the chair.
