They took a tendon out of my right knee then replaced it in my ankle by boring two holes through my joint on the outer side of the bone. The tendon was attached to the bone with a screw, strung through the first hole and screwed down. Then strung through the second hole and pinned on the other side. Here are the links to my Ankle Injury and Surgery Posts.

Even though I wouldn’t recommend having surgery to anyone (it’s super hard) it was the best choice for me and I’m 115% glad that I did it. Recovery is the hardest part. I’m more than a year out from surgery and I’m still not quite back to my usual active-running self.
