I have to ask, any inserted Titanium?
I speak from personal experience, it is an essential addition.
(so glad to see the recovery is going OK. FWIW I can highly recommend having a young blonde physio rubbing in baby oil to make you feel much better .......... not sure if it did my wound any good but it was certainly enjoyable.)
Trying to keep up with the Jones;s and all their stacks, You were feeling left out, Hahahahaha
Bike following me down the road and or going under the car, Thats down right scary, Mate,
6 months and you will be near perfect again, Unfortunately, Those six months will hurt,
I did the geriatric thing last year when I near tore both my arms off, And I only fell over,
Keep smiling, It dont last long,
Wishing you and the bird a speedy recovery, your story is a timely reminder to all of us that ride to always wear the right gear and also realise every cager out there is trying to kill you.
all the best
That sounds and LOOKS like a real shaker-uppper, Bro, BUT - from your replies on here you're doing (probably) better than expected, considering what you've been through.
The road to recovery might be tough, but not as tough as you - and I'm sure that anyone seeing those pictures who appreciates your usual straight-talking, no-nonsense approach to life would agree that you're certainly not a cry-baby. Keep checking in and keep us up to date - and fe-eel the love, my brother. 🥰
Sorry to hear of your recent off. Prayers and condolences to you and the Bird. Heal fast and keep the doctors on their toes. Some don't like being questioned , but it's your right to know everything they are doing and why. My hip replacement surgery 2 years ago resulted in severe pain after 30 days. Upon investigation , a Staph Infection with MRSA was found in the wound and a second surgery was necessary , to " Clean It Out ." . The same orthopedic surgeon told me there was a 20% chance of a Staph infection every time you enter an operating room. I asked him why I wasn't told this before the first surgery. He basically said they were trying a lot of new procedures at Emory but there was nothing to date being done that would or could reduce the odds. Apparently , the doctors and nurses carry the infection due to prolonged exposure to it , but have antibodies in their system , which keeps them walking around with it but still functional in their respective jobs. I had 12 days in isolation , 4 months of home therapy with IVs twice a day to try and kill the remaining Infection. Guess what ? I still have pain in that healed wound and I'm still taking antibiotics. My last conversation about my continued pain after 2 surgeries with the same surgeon resulted in him telling me I had 2 choices. We could operate a 3rd time or I may have to be on antibiotics for the rest of my life !I just upgraded my antibiotics and added one to my daily regimen of 18 other " getting older " meds. At 76 , I can safely advice our younger riders , Wear The Best Gear and " Old Age Ain't For Sissies ." Stay Safe !
I echo all the sentiments written above. Have been super busy and not on any of my forums for months and I come back to this very unfortunate news. How is your best half taking this?
