X-rays before and after surgery

Last week I got some X-rays of my knees. As you can see in the pictures before the surgery, especially on the pictures taken from the side, the bones are together with no or very little distance between them. The consequences is that there is nothing that prevent the bones to touch each other. That causes the pain.

As you can see on the X-rays after the surgery there are titanium pieces inserted on the bones both above and below the knees itself. On the lower part there is also a bit of plastic (difficult to see) that ensures a smooth bending of the knees.

As no bone are close all the pain has disappeared and it feels fantastic. Now the rehab is all about building back the muscles in my legs, which by the way goes very well.
