Does tapatalk preview show the last photo posted on a thread? I donít want the graphic pics to show up in the feeds

This is probably the least nasty of the photos (apart from showing my face). This was 5 days after surgery and before necrosis set in. Itís going to get ugly from here so sensitive viewers be warned

Bliksem Jaco!!!!


Glad they were able to save your foot.

Insane how that happened, no one would ever expect that result from how you explained the incident.
I have always been pretty anal about atgatt, I have gotten slack with the pants bit of late but I recon I am going to start wearing my extra riding pants over my jeans from now on again

And now for the gross ones

Heavily swollen foot with the cut made in theatre to relieve pressure



After surgery to mend the big toe



The degloving taken in ER. The surgeon later told me that his fingers could go in all the way to the other side of my foot and up to my toes



What it currently looks like











Itís fairly safe to say you wonít see me riding without boots for a long time

Hi Dwerg.I wish you a speedy recovery.I think you have done the right thing by posting these pics.I see too often guys wearing "Sneakers" or what ever you call them.You are not the first person who I have seen receive serious damage from not wearing boots.

Thks for the Heads Up

Best wishes
