had an accident at work on monday morning, been in a morphine haze ever since. here are some pictures from the process. accident was getting 1,5-2 tonnes pipe fall on my leg from about 40 cm. up. Luckily there was a wooden board on the ground keeping my entire foot to get crushed.
Just gotten my first morphine shot, pain has subsided and I'm high as f.
After I corrected the leg from standing at a 90 degree angle to the right - now at the hospital, but still not exactly right.
Leg angle corrected by ortopedist, and pre-op cast built.
First operation lasted 4 hours, they inserted a metal stick through the entire fibula (the shin-bone) and had to use some plates to get the crushed parts of the bone together.
After operation. But no. Too much pressure on the nerves through fluid filled tissue/muscles.
Not much to see, but about 20-30 cm long "open" cuts on each side of the shin-bone to release pressure.
Fully opened just a fleshwound.
So there it is, about 3 days in constant morphine high, still a lot of pain some of the time. Slept my first 4 hours tonight excluding the sleep I got when in narcosis. Well fucked in the head at this time.

Holy shit dude
I hope you're going to get some good workers comp out of that. Intense. I hope that it heals up as quickly as possible too, mate. That can't be a lot of fun.

It's probably going to take over a year to fully restore. Crutches for at least 2 months depending on how die hard I am.
