Ankle Surgery January 2019

For those of you wondering, I’ve paused my consultations for a while. I really love doing them but I’m swamped. I am writing a book that should be an easier way for people to get the info they need, for a cheaper price. The Carnivore Diet How-To Guide is coming soon!

Part of the reason I paused the consults is because I am getting ankle surgery January 15th 2019 in Switzerland. I finally found a surgeon who can supposedly fix my problem. My problem is I can’t move my left ankle and it hurts to walk on it. It’s been like this for years and is definitely getting worse. There is nothing I can do about this except surgery. It’s not arthritis, it’s caused by the fake joint. On the bright side, all the other joints in my foot and arthritis free which has surprised everyone.

Turns out the joint was originally installed crooked back in 2009. That explains why I haven’t been able to move my foot properly for almost 10 years… Is my life a black comedy? Sometimes I think yes.

This was the original x-ray after it had been replaced:

So this is what my joint looks like right now:

There’s so much bone growth around the joint that the actual bottom part of the fake joint has been shifted over to the left (right in the photo) by almost a 5 mm. That’s pushing my fibula over. No wonder it hurts and can’t move. Yikes.

I’ve been trying to find someone to fix this foot of mine for years. The first surgeon in Toronto I went to see in 2014 (who I had seen for a consult when I was 17) said “I told you, you shouldn’t have replaced it, it should have been fused. I can clean out all the bone but it won’t help”. Okay… as much as that instils faith in me, I think I’ll go elsewhere…

Then I saw someone in the States and he said “the entire joint needs to be removed, we need to saw off different pieces of a bunch of the bones in your foot and cut two tendons and it’s a year healing time also by the time you’re 40 you’re going to be screwed because there won’t be enough bone to do another replacement with once this new one wears out so you might end up with amputation.” Obviously, that was not all said in one breath but it did turn my poor mother a lovely shade of green.

So I went to see a third one and he said, “I can clean out the bone and do an Achilles tendon cut and you have an 80 percent chance of fixing the problem”. 6 weeks healing time. But I didn’t want an Achilles tendon cut (they literally just snip it), because I don’t think that’s the issue. And I actually like my Achilles Tendon how it is.

THEN I went to see the guy who actually designed the joint in Liestal, Switzerland. He tried to move my foot which doesn’t move and said, “Ah dis ist not goot.” It’s worse than a fusion because not only can I not move it but I’m also in pain.

Then he said it was installed crooked by 7 degrees!!! Which is what it FEELS like. Finally, someone who potentially knows what he’s talking about. He said, “I can go in, replace the crooked part and you’ll be weight bearing in 2 days.” Two days. Not 6 weeks, not a year. I asked about the Achilles tendon cut and he scoffed and said that only Americans do that because they’re surgery happy and that he doesn’t do that. He also said his incision would be much smaller than the one I have because apparently North American surgeons are incision happy. He’s going to attach my fibula and tibia together so they don’t dislocate. I’ll have a scar on the outside of my leg from that. He’s going to remove all the screws as well because apparently, they don’t use screws anymore. I told him I’m allergic to everything and can’t take oral pain medications and he said it shouldn’t hurt that much afterwards. So let’s hope that’s the case.

I’m going with him. So frustrating to get so many different opinions. I mean this is my FOOT we’re talking about it. I’m rather attached to it. I found that last sentence way funnier than I should have.

I’m scheduled in for January 15th. Dad is coming with me to bring me steak for the hospital, haha. He’s also doing a show in Zurich at the same time.

I really hope I can use my foot after this. It’s been 10 years with a crooked ankle replacement and man, I would kill to be able to walk on the beach, and dance. Or walk bare foot even. Or even just to not be in pain. It’s been a long time coming but I have a good feeling about it.

  1. Hope all goes well 🙂 I recently started to get kinda restless/anxious again, I thought maybe i wasn’t eating enough fat or maybe not enough protein? nothing else really changed in my routine except that i now wake up at 2pm and sleep at 4am, trying to get back to a normal sleep pattern, not sure if that could impact anxiety/restlessness though.

  2. if there was a fringe science, unorthodox, non-conventional way to regrow your ankle, I would try that since airport security picks up any metal implants as a red-flag hidden weapon potential.

    I left some comments on “how this might possibly be done” elsewhere on your web site.

    I have come across more and more everyday this concept that globalist tycoons are trying to do away with consumption of meat. This does not bode well for you. This story seems to come from self-appointed know-it-all type persons who know nothing of your story. They must have their heads up their butts?

    A long term conspiracy is the one that promotes globalism and fraudulent science to run a corrupt technocracy that shall strip us of any remaining freedoms for our health, etc.

    Here is what some are saying about one particular topic
    Google video search >How Anti-Whiteness Is Pushed On White Kids – Jason Köhne”born guilty” “book” “no white guilt”<

    The "born guilty" book title unfortunately is a duplicate to a 2017 Hollywood film with Rosanna Arquette that has no relationship to the recent book.

  3. i posted a link to a YouTube video. That link vanishes somehow by the mechanism of this blog software. That sort of defeats the purpose of my posting. Way to go! (sarcasm)

  4. Sorry about that negative comment, but I seem to have found that greater than and less than symbols when entered into this blog causes a conniption fit with your blog software.

    Without placing the title within any enclosing punctuation marks at all is this keyword search pharasing:
    How Anti-Whiteness Is Pushed On White Kids – Jason Köhne

  5. I can search your web site better with Google since your forum keyword search is badly broken since it seems to find nothing when actually something is there.

    When I use Google to search your site with the site specifier, then search for the word beck, Google locates the page, but not in the older posts link at the page bottom that must be manually clicked to find the entries.

    • I’m upgrading the website in the next couple of months, trust me, I get it. I have no patience for badly done websites and this qualifies as one. Will be majorly redone asap.
