Title: Why we (should) wear boots. WARNING VERY GRAPHIC!!!
Post by: Dwerg on September 20, 2018, 08:55:15 am
Spoiler: I wasnít wearing mine.

I didnít want to post anything about this injury before I had a bit of clarity on recovery but it looks like I am almost out of real danger.

About six weeks ago, I clipped a pole with my bikes gear lever and footpeg at maybe 30km/h. The force of the footpeg against my foot caused degloving of my foot sole and the impact broke my big toe in three places. My foot tore open from my heel all the way to my little toe. Large parts of the foot suffered tissue damage from the impact. An incision had to be made on the top of my foot to relieve preassure from swelling and for drainage. This cut was then enlarged and used for access to put a plate on my big toe. I was in hospital for two weeks and Iíve been going for wound care twice weekly since (4 weeks) and will be for at least another 4. Probably more. This is to treat necrosis of parts of the sole as well as other areas that suffered trauma.

According to the two surgeons, wound care nurses, ER doctors.... well just everyone involved, I was extremely lucky not to have lost my foot. And even moreso that I am likely to make a relatively good recovery. I am not out of the woods yet, far from it but it at least sounds like the worst case scenario is now off the table.

Iím in two minds about posting the really graphic pics but it could serve as a warning to others and a reminder to myself. Iíll maybe save them for later so they donít pop up at the top of the thread.

This is what my shoe looks like.

I have two sets of boots but I obviously wasnít wearing either. My SG12s wouldíve greatly reduced the injury but I only wear them when I plan to go offroad. For other stuff I usually use W2 adventure boots and I am not convinced there wouldíve been much difference in the outcome with them over tekkies.

In the mean time I can only dream about riding for the next few months.

good advice and warning, hope you heal quick. i have many a time clipped my foot on something and thought to myself that could have hurt had it been any closer.

Sheesh! that must have been bloody painful.  :eek7: Hope you heal well and soon.

I'm not a total ATGATT freak, but I generally wear the usual helmet jacket and gloves. Pants not so much, but almost always my boots. Can't afford the best MX Sidi's or whatever, but the most substantial ones I can afford, and I reckon I'd feel more naked on a bike without gloves and boots than without a helmet.

Jaco,
Where you offroad on suburban'ning?

 Regardless, may you heal quick and with as little after effects as possible.

I too have a foot incident.
 With ankle boots, clipped a car's front corner bumper passing it on the right, it wasn't indicating to turn right, wham.
 
Practically crushed all the metatarsals in my left foot. Had a reconstructive surgeon on the emergency call at City Park. Pretty sure he saved my foot, if it was any other type of doctor, not so much.

Do I ATGATT?
 Sadly, no. Pip, torso, hands yes.
And I commute on my bike, daily.

All the best with the recovery and I am sorry to hear about the injuries.

I have attended a few BMW training days and they go on and on about boots in particular.

They use the example that proper boots may be R5k plus but the anaesthetists bill would be more than that without the other costs, time off work, etc.

This is probably the least nasty of the photos (apart from showing my face). This was 5 days after surgery and before necrosis set in. Itís going to get ugly from here so sensitive viewers be warned

Glad they were able to save your foot.

Insane how that happened, no one would ever expect that result from how you explained the incident.
I have always been pretty anal about atgatt, I have gotten slack with the pants bit of late but I recon I am going to start wearing my extra riding pants over my jeans from now on again

The toe is by far more painful than the wound but there is also a lot of nerve damage so I have very little feeling on the surface areas.

Die skok toe jy jou eie voet sien was seker so erg soos die pyn? :eek7: :eek7:

Die gebreekte toon was so seer ek het eers nie agter gekom die voet is oop nie. My vrou het wel amper om gekap toe ek my skoen uit trek  :P

Dwerg, that is one serious injury man!
I read another thread on Thumpertalk of a guy who also hit something with his foot while riding without boots and it shattered quite a few bones in his foot.
Eventually they had to amputate his big toe.

Watter voet is dit nou weer Jaco? Te bang om weer na fotos te kyk! :eek7:

Linkervoet, ironies my seun kannie kar bestuur want sy linkerbeen is nog seer na sy kar ongeluk, maar ry met sy NC 750 DCT.
Goeie voorstel :thumleft:

Eks nie bang vir bietjie ongemak as mens ry nie maar die dokters reken die interne weefsel skade is die grote en swelling gaan nog pla na die wonde en bene gesond is. Ek moet nogsteeds omtrent heel dag my voet hoog hou om dit in toom te hou. Kan nie met die voet grond toe sit of staan vir meer as Ďn paar minute op Ďn slag nie. Maar ja die oomblik wat ek kan is ek terug op die bike. Die keer met boots aan

Wow. Hard to believe that amount of damage can occur at 30km/h. The shoe actually survived rather well. I hope you have a full recovery. Lesson to all of us.

similar also happened to me in 2003 on a 650 dakar - plakkies, kortbroek en T-shirt - net gou iets gaan optel

right foot was quite badly injured after a down on diesel - also got infected, but I was not in hospital - I have never had anything that painful...... and I don't even take an injection at the dentist - seriously

Since, I dress a bit more appropriately, even for the shortest of rides

Nee glad nie normaal nie  :lol8:

Die donker gedeeltes is nekrose so MAW weefsel wat dood gegaan het AGV die trauma/impak/bloed tekort. Dit is waarvoor ek 2 keer per week vir wond behandeling gaan. Al daai gedeeltes word stadig maar seker verwyder deur dit met middels te behandel en deur fisies uit te sny. Dan word dit weer rooi soos ander dele en dan maak dit nuwe weefsel en vel soos in die pink dele. As daai swart dele dieper in die voet in gegaan het is waar amputasie in die prentjie in sou kom.

PT broek en plakkies met T shirt.
Net voor hy om die hoek uit sig verdwyn sien ek agterop die helmet is n sticker geplak wat seg Brakpan is n KIEF plek!!! :peepwall: :pot: :lol8: ;)

I can yes but it still gets painful so I am in the moon boot and using one crutch. As soon as the wounds are healed I will go for a bike ride. I might need to have the screws removed at some point which will put me off the bike again for a while.

At least it's the left foot.
Throttle foot still good to go.

What car are you driving?

Golf with DSG gearbox. Had to buy it because I sold my Grand Vitara earlier this year. Good thing because that V6 wouldíve killed my budget on the PTA-JHB commute

Just the foot healing itself naturally. Well, with the help of some medicine stuff the wound care nurses apply to it twice weekly.

Already getting itchy to ride. Started my bikes today to make sure the batteries are all good when Iím ready to go for a ride :ricky:

Blixem Dwerg!
Glad to see you are healing well.
I have a similar story though I did not share when it happened.
Almost 4 years ago I fell off my CRF250L in Moz. Wearing track shoes, also doing about 30kph, rocky road with a high middle mannetjie, I was standing on the pegs watching a small herd of elephant bulls crossing the road in front of me.
I clipped a round rock about the size of a soccer ball and instantly lost the front end.
I came down hard on the middlemannetjie with the bike on top of my right leg, skidded about 10m before it stopped.
I had to yank my foot out from under the bike and it was immediately obvious that it was bad. Shoe had come off and foot at funny angle.
My handheld radio was still on my belt and I called it in. Help took about 30 minutes to arrive. I lay on my back with the foot elevated and waited it out, watching the ellies browsing 20m from me.
This happened at about noon, I got a cruiser ride back to base, another cruiser ride to the KNP fence on top of the Lebombos then a chopper casevac to Nelspruit mediclinic, arrived there early evening.
Emergency theatre almost straight after that to stabilize the foot.
Injuries; dislocated ankle, degloved foot sole with the tear just above the sole on the outside from back of heel to just behind the little toe.
But that was just the beginning.
Like you, I suffered necrosis.
In total 3 theatre visits under general anisthetic, many weeks of vacuum dressing therapy to get new flesh to grow then a skin graft to cover.
Almost 3 months to the day before I could go back to work.
Though disfigured and with the sole offset now I am happy that I still have my foot.
I still ride my bikes, though a lot more careful now.
ATGATT? To be honest no, but a lot more than before.

This post always has me thinking of how we ride our MTB's with hardly any protective gear.

Bly om te sien dat jy goed aansterk Dwerg.
Jou voet lyk baie goed in agneming die kort tyd wat dit gevat het om te heg.
Amper daar....kan glo jy kan nie wag om weer te ry nie.
Sterkte
