Re:Went down hard on fwy 8 Months, 1 Week ago  
home finally
feels good. neighbors are helping out by bringing cooked meals now and then which is wonderful.

they gave me a cd wiyh my x rays. thought I would share a couple

this one was done may 31 when it happened:




this is 7 days after they plated my ribs



and this is my right wrist on may 31, it is in much better shape now after 2 surgeries



got a follow up appontment this thurs for the wrist and th dr says 1 more surgery in a month or so after that.

I was wearing full face helmet. I haven't looked my gear over yet to see where it got ground down. I do know my buffalo hide jacket saved my hide.

"dress for the slide" has very real meaning for me now.

Ouch Loren. That hurts me just to look at it! Sure am glad you survived and are at home. Did you break the ends of some fingers?

Maybe we should start a thread of everyone's X-Rays! I could contribute.

The wrist shot is bad but the plated rib shot is by far the most cringe worthy to me. I have broken ribs before and it feels really horrible but never had it so bad that they had to add at least 8 pin/screws per rib for 5 ribs. Ouch that just really hurts even 3,000+ miles away.

I actually feel extremely blessed that they plated my ribs. with the plates in place there is no sliding, grinding, clicking or popping with every breath. it hurts a LOT less now then it otherwise would.
they also got me back the 30% lung capacity I had lost before the surgery.

I did some reading up on rib plating, and in canada they don't relegate the procedure solely to extreme cases like mine. it promotes faster less painful healing.

I do look forward to being able to sleep on my side again someday tho.
