The Fibula’s Connected to the… Tibius.

I feel insanely pissed off just writing the title of this blog entry. The other day, my fiance’s mother broke her ankle. Before she was able to see the orthopod, she told one of her friend’s kids about her injury.

Her: Yeah, I don’t know, I just know that I broke it in two places.
Friend’s Kid (FK): My mom did that once, she had a tibius breakage.
Her: I don’t understand all of these medical terms, lol.
FK: Yeah I love medical terms…the tibius is next to the tibial artery as a bone in the foot (or something, I don’t remember exactly what else he said)
Her: Oh okay.

There is no tibius bone! Gahhhh he is so goddamn stupid I wanted to punch him in the face. I don’t know if it’s because I’m a student or just weird but it bothers me when people say things like tibius. Especially since he was so arrogant about it and so sure…

But yeah, I will post her x-ray pictures soon. You can try to guess what the diagnosis was. (If you have training in evaluating x-rays, don’t guess!)
