This Man Voluntarily Amputated His Foot! He's Not Crazy, And His Reason Might Have You Making The Same Decision In His Place!
Joseph Pleban, 23, absolutely loves sports.
You name it, he's probably played it. Extreme sports and regular ones, it doesn't matter, he loves to be active.
So you can imagine how awful it must've been when doctors told him he had a rare bone and joint disease (pigmented villonodular synovitis), and that he'd have non-cancerous tumors causing pain and arthritis in his ankle for the rest of his life.
He had two options: fuse the ankle and endure a lifetime of surgeries or amputate it.
