Sky, what caused his original injury? I apologize for not knowing but it occurred before I joined the forum thus I never read about it at the time (and am getting ready for work so don't have much time right now to research back @ the moment). It would make sense if it was becoming edematous ("stocked up"?) from time to time during a lengthy healing process I would assume, even if it was a relatively minor injury initially, but to reopen sounds odd, UNLESS, was it an abscess?
Again, apologies for asking for total retelling (edit: posted comment mid-sentence, darn SMART PHONE!) but if you like you could direct me to the title of the original post and I can read through tonight @ work (hopefully!) & maybe be able to offer some "novice-rider" opinion! Sometimes we "returnees" think of the less sensible stuff which the super-experts think wouldn't be the case...just a possibility? I feel for you being away from him and having to manage stuff like ths via telephone and photos!
Hoping I can help out! :0)
