That sounds like a horrible crash man. Really happy to hear you will recover. Very tough road ahead. I have nothing to offer on pain med advice take whatever the hell helps in the initial stages!
Sounds like Archimedes is your man for advice/guidance.

Care to share the details on the crash?

Heal fast rider.

please tell me it wasn't that damn rear tire that bit you??

hope you get through the hard part unscathed
pain meds are there for a reason...try and get to sleep after a bit without them and you'll see that you really do need them.

getting up and letting the blood flow will feel really good once you get used to not putting any weight on your leg and, once you have the strength to move your self back and forth....take it slow!

edit: i volunteer to do a ride by so you can remember what it's like to do wheelies...if you need the motivation to ever get back into riding

I'm sorry to hear about your accident. Right now while you're in the hospital and on drugs is not the time to make any decisions. Just heal up now. Give yourself that time. My . Heal up soon

Heal up and glad you are still with us. When you get out of the hospital besides staying busy, stay hydrated. Drinking milk is good for the bone to heal.

What the fuck do I do now. I feel like I just want to keep taking the strongest drugs to deal with it is that good? Anyone give me advice on what to do? I'm pretty much happy I'm just here for another day. Will be giving up riding more then likely. Ummmmm lets see that's abut it. I'm a blessed dude and have an amazing girlfriend on my side willing to fight through this with me
right now your instincts are telling you to do all sorts of different things.
Before you make any rash decisions give yourself some time to recover then re examine what happened.

don't be ashamed ask for help because you're going to need it.

So much this.

OP, you're lucky. You did good. You're also in good company. Some of the most badass riders ever broke their femurs. Gary Nixon and Barry Sheene come to mind.

Congrats and heal up.

On the topic of healing; I spend 3 weeks in traction and a total of 6 weeks confined to bed for skiing wreck I had when I was 22. My buddy's hot girlfriend smuggled a pint of Tanqueray (not recommended with the opiates) and a stack of Hermann Hesse novels (well, those didn't have to be smuggled) into the hospital for me. The Tanqueray didn't last long, but the Hesse novels were a life/mind saver. Read.

Been there at an earlier age than you. Gave up motorcycle riding for about four months (I didn't have a femur break, but 250 stitches in my face and body).
Sorry to hear about your accident.

You are young a d alive and will most likely ride again. If you give it up, i will take your bike.

Damn, sorry to hear that! You can't rush the healing process, it takes time especially with an injury like that. Just count your blessings and try to enjoy the time to relax.

I have nothing to add other than thank goodness you are here to ask about your recovery.

Having a strong partner by your side is a huge plus.

Be good to her!
