Rare ankle replacement allows long walks to resume
from News Herald
Daily walks were put on hold in 2009 when retired Army Sgt. Maj. Mike Mead could no longer suppress the pain in his left ankle. A total ankle replacement, one of the first done in Bay County in Florida in the past decade, has given the career solider relief from the pain and a return to his walks. Mead took three one-mile walks a day with his dog, at least until this time last year when the pain kept him off the walking paths. He is slowly building up his strength to return to his longer walks. He currently can walk about a mile a day.
