Never been injured that bad, but had some nasty spills racing. The friends I have had who have had major injuries, you get through it and figure it out. You are fortunate not to be para or quad, which is a lot harder to "figure out". Thank your lucky stars and keep pinching yourself for how lucky you are it wasn't worse than a leg..

Glad you're still with us.
Take the time to heal properly, and take whatever break you need from two wheels.
Recognizing that you may not be mature enough to keep it safe and sane now doesn't mean that you won't be in the future.

Man that sucks. Really glad your gal is there to support you.

Hopefully some titanium bits will help you back to a full recovery. Time will roll by slowly so try to enjoy the little things in life that can bring a smile. A good book, binge watch a great TV show, watch kids play... whatever works for you. After successful surgery getting out of the hospital will be the first big goal.. then establish more. You pick em.. you do em.

Hope it goes well for you. Heal effectively and quickly as possible.

I broke my leg skateboarding 5.5 years ago and had a gnarly spiral fracture in my right tib. After a 9.5 hour surgery, I spent the next 5 months healing and laying in bed. It wasn't too bad at first, but shit got really hard.

I'd suggest taking the time to learn some new skills and watching the entire season of The Wire in less than a week.

Maybe learn to write code and get some raspberry PIs and fuck around with them. Learn to sodder and other things you can do whilst immobilized.

One of the hardest parts for me was the financial burden. I ended up owing several thousand dollars to family and friends because I couldn't work. Also ended up on welfare and that $200 a month helped me survive.

It was great to have family around, especially my mother who did my grocery shopping, shuttled me to appointments, purchased my prescriptions and helped get my medical bills waved, as I had been unemployed and without insurance.

Needless to say, it was a hard time for me and those around me.

Since the accident I've been unable to skateboard, something I'd been doing for 20 years and it left a serious hole in my life. Something that wasn't sufficiently fulfilled till I moved back to the bay and started riding again.

If you need the full season of The Wire, I think I still have it and would be willing to share.

Best of luck on your recovery and I hope you heal up soon.

Right. My buddy broke his and it healed 1 degree off. Had to rebreak.

My point is don't get hooked to oxys and stuff, esp if he knows his personality has an addictive nature.

BTW - forgot, heal up soon man! Sucks, but you will get through it.

I don't think oxy's are being produced any longer.
Please take this time to process the event and the fact that you are still living.
Do not rush time and fight to heal well.
Shit-I'm happy to hear you are alive and have a potentially wonderful future.

Glad you're alive and that medical technology is so incredible. That is the greatest upside.

Problem with drugs is that they CAN mess with your overall psychology. I finally refused the hydrocodone because I kept wanting to jump out of the window in my hospital room. I am not kidding. I "ideated" or whatever the word is, landing down there on Ashby and everything. Didn't help that it was the month of December and all.

On another note thinks for the support everyone, this is going to be a long long process. Hopefully I figure a lot out about myself.
