Title: Dwerg down (a year ago...)
Post by: Noneking on August 28, 2019, 09:15:34 am
My brother has been taken off his bike by yet another careless driver in a cage it seems. Very limited info at this stage. Please keep Jaco in your thoughts and prayers!

His wife, PietSkiet and Gryshond on their way to Sunninghill where he was taken by ambulance

Immensely frustrating to sit in Nelspruit while this is happening. Initial reports are that he has broken arm and leg left side, no further info at this stage. Paramedics refused Gryshond access to him

Dammit , how many have to go down like this before the car drivers wake up and look out for us. I also commute to work on the bike and each day without fail some driver is doing the most dangerous thing on the road, cellphones are the worst devices ever invented when it comes to road safety.

Hope Dwerg comes out as best as possible from what sounds like a terrible accident.

Noneking is that photo the scene of the accident ?

Een nadeel natuurlik is om in dieselfde hospitaal te le waaruit Ganjora pas ontslaan is. Die personeel is seker nog kwaai afgepis. :pot:

Just spoke to one of Dwerg's mates who is at the hospital.

Injuries are very bad. Saw pics and felt like vomiting at the sight of it.  It's gonna be a long road ahead.....

Terrible nuus om te hoor.  Die beserings klink baie erg maar mens se liggaam het fantastiese vermoe om te herstel, even met die ergste beserings. Jy het afterall sopas daai voetbesering gehad en mooi deurgekom, hierdie keer maak jy weer so!  Jy gaan lank nie kan rook, miskien ook tyd om daai habit te kick - dit maak jou herstel net soveel langer as jy suurstof verruil vir nikotien (ja ja, ek weet maar dis die waarheid :biggrin:)

Jammer om te hoor en sterkte daar. Het net laas week sy RR gelees. So waar wat jy se Rynet, het net nou nie dag vir my vriend gese soos mens ouer word begin mens jou motorfiets ryery al hoe meer bevraagteken bloot om die rede dat as ons ouer mense in so n ongeluk betrokke is gaan jy baie moeilik daarvan herstel. Hierin PE was een van ons BMW Klub lede ook laas naweek in n ongeluk betrokke waar n dame oor n verkeerslig gery het en hom uit geneem het. So belerrie onnodig. Weereens baie sterkte daar.

An accident like this is not something one would wish upon anyone[bar one or two souls I can think of], but when it happens, it brings with it unique and seldom experienced feelings and conditions.

Firstly, your relieve because of escaping without permanent injury or death is like a newfound emotion, a breath of fresh air. You love life all over again.

Then, because of you having no choice in the path that is to follow, long and slow recuperation, you settle into a really blissful period of concentrating only on one thing, namely getting better.

You do your exercises, and even with those you can cheat a bit >:D, you read, you chat to people, but above all, you have time to yourself to really unwind.

Realise right from the beginning that time will heal this, and no way can time be rushed.

Wallow in your recuperation, Jaco, and see it as a holiday.

Disclaimer; perhaps because I am 60 years old, acceptance and patience came easier. 8)

Appreciate all the kind words and encouragement. It really helps in the darker and lonely times.

Elbow op last night was a difficult one with lots of screws holding it together. You know when the surgeon calls your injuries horrific that they were pretty severe but he recons all the repairs went very well.

Now just one more op to close the holes where I had open fractures but draining them first and next op will probably be next week thursday

Sat up with feet on the floor already today. Physio is hard core

physio,  physio and more physio.
take it seriously and watch the progress on a daily basis.
it's been 7 weeks and 6 days since my accident.
i am still doing physio.
i still notice the daily improvement with my leg.
cannot run just yet,  but soon.
physio at home is much better.
i play with my daughter.
we ride bicycles,  play hand tennis in the street,  gaining grounds,  etc etc etc.
way better than any physio/exercise routine,  way more fun,  does what's needed,  and is quality time too.
for me the pain and frustration were bad,  the missing of my family was the absolute worst.
my attitude is that if you're sick,  you need to take your meds,  but taking them at home beats the fuck out of taking them in a hospital.
do what you need to do in order to get home.
worry about everything else from the comfort of your own bed.

Full list of fractures all on the left

Shattered femur, open
Shattered hip
Wrist fracture radius and ulna, open
Shattered elbow, according to the doc, the worst heís seen by some margin

I received some graphic pics of my mangled body from the accident scene and the commenters were not lying, itís pretty horrific

Get your headspace right, it is more than half the battle, keep busy as best you can in this situation. As mentioned physio, physio, physio. The pain will be there and will drain you but it will get exponentially better and a long while down the line it will almost vanish and you will wonder if it was real. Rest as often as you can, try and sleep.
from my experiences NSAIDs are only necessary in the beginning but detrimental for bones healing. my last break, pelvis, I stopped all pain medication and NSAIDs after a couple of days. My ortho was shocked to see me walk into his office unaided after nine days. The pain was great but healing was quick.

Best of luck Dwerg, keep positive and heal well.

Always have it out ............... you never know when it's gonna happen again. Bend a femur nail while it's still in your leg and you'll end up a lot shorter than a dwarf .................  :biggrin:

I've got one femur nail framed and hanging on the lounge wall and another in my leg. That one will be coming out in November to join it's friend in the frame.

Unless I give up riding, then it might stay in.

For the one in your femur, your ortho will probably advise to take it out on exactly one year. That is when I gad mine done. The femur is the bone in the body that takes to longest to properly repair itsself. I was also fine on 8-10 months and I was cycling and playing golf, but the thing hurt me whenever I got in & out of a car or if I wanted to do anything with a bit of impact like bowling in the nets. So I had it taken out on 12 months and never looked back :thumleft: for a while, the almost normal rotation in the hip joint actually hampered my golf swing.  :imaposer: I played better with the pin in my leg  :imaposer:

Some new hardware. Torn ligament in my thumb (refered to as alpine skier syndrome) which in turn tore a tiny piece of bone from my thumb. The little dot is a tiny pin holding the small piece of bone in place, the longer one is a wire to keep the thumb in place to allow the ligament repair not to be disturbed and comes out in 6-8 weeks, 5 minute procedure

Het ook skiers thump op my regterhand. Darem nie ernstig genoeg vir operasie, maar geweldig lastig. Ek doen bietjie hand oefeninge wat dit omtrent heeltemal wegvat..

Jy is darem nog jonk genoeg om goed te herstel van beserings!

Yesterday I foolishly thought I was doing so well that I could vitually cut out morphine and halve the tramal. What a mistake. Spent 7 agonising hours playing catch up games to get pain under control again. Of all accidents Iíve had, that was the most pain Iíd ever experienced, like sneezing with a broken rib for 7 hours straight.

And today, TMI but back Iím back on morphine so donít care....

Went to the loo under my own steam (only about 5m from my bed) and wiped my own arse. Result!

Then had a painful but massively improved physio session. At this pace Iíll hopefully be home before the end of next week

Going home, something to look forward to, and hopefully by then the pain will be easier manageable, so you can start to relax and recuperate faster. :thumleft:

Glad to hear you are recovering so well!
My friend got cut of by a car at our quiet turnoff!
Broken leg and waiting for swelling to go down before they can bolt him back together!
So fast to happen and long to recover.
You just keep on recovering well!

Sorry about your friend OB.

Once again thanks for all the support and entertaining my useless ramblings. It really helps pass the tedious times between visiting hours. The TVs in the hospital are soundless and reading books and morphine donít mix

Podcasts and audiobooks man. When I had my crash I had a pretty bad concussion and they didnít want me watching tv, or using phones/screens etc or reading. Got deep into podcasts and a couple audiobooks.

Just have more morphine.
If you cannot move your body while it recovers, let your mind go on holiday at least.
Figured out the maximum that I was allowed, then demanded on the hour every hour.
And not into the drip line above my head, directly into the tap attached to the big blue thumper in the arm.
Watch that plunger and count to 3.
Woosh.

They are a little stingy with the morphine (2mg per hour max and will only do 3 then start skipping hours) but still, between that and the tramal I get plenty woosh and nap time

You know, I like to do a bit of informal detective thingies when I look at pictures, and I have theory of what happened here.

The KTM saw that electricity box and mistaking it for a ATM, went straight into it.

The Polo is a cover-up by the importers of KTM. :pot:

Morphine didn't work for me. Apparently, this is a thing, some have a tolerance that goes beyond safe dosages.

They gave me Pethadine... Now THAT was bliss!

Was I ever so addicted after 5 days on it.

Been told that that ketamine is a better choice than morphine when it comes to the management of pain, apparently more effective with less side effects, might be worth asking your healthcare professional's opinion

Don't stress the emotions, blame it on the drugs  ;) Couple of years ago I trained my ass of for 2 years to race the Cape Epic. It was an all in commitment. I lost 15kg's in the process and was in the form of my life, aiming for a top 10 in Masters and one month before the event I fell and shattered my collarbone. My wife had to come fetch me on the side of the road and I sat in her car and cried like a baby all the way to the hospital. Not from the pain (although it was kak sore) but from the absolute disappoint of throwing so much time and effort into something that now wasn't going to materialize. I hung up my mtb after that and it took 5 years before I took it down again. Time is a healer and sometimes our plans aren't always Gods plans. I'm a firm believer that all things happen for a reason, even if we don't see it. Hang in there, you're still alive and breathing and can make a difference  :thumleft:

I have a little mantra I tell every new nurse that assists me: Keep me pain free and youíll have the easiest patient in the ward. Yesterdayís guy took that as gospel, kept me soaked in morphine, and as a result I slept virtually the entire day plus slept through the night because he passed the same message to night shift. I was basically only awake for physio, the visitors slots plus 30 after each session. Did two walks out to reception for the physio session, probably 70-100 m in total. Result! Had a visit from @Gryshond in the morning, my wife in the afternoon and then @Ri who is in the afea for work. She brought some gifts.

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190910/68aa754f8e7bfb42849cf07c228c1e09.jpg)

Little pillows like those are one of the handiest things to have when immobilised with an injury. You can stick them under legs, arms etc to get comfortable for all day lying down. I have another little rhino head one given to me by @MonkeyNot and his wife with my last crash.

As much as I enjoy a spunge bath from a big black male nurse, Iíve now started doing a stand up wipe down next to my bed in the mornings. With this Iíve discovered a few new injuries. One being that my frank and beans are bruised a very dark shade of purple

Well that strangely kind of brings me to a point nobody ever mentions: The strain something like this puts on a relationship is bloody HUGE. Both parties go through completely polar opposite traumatising events. One deals with a near death experience, the physical truama and re-evaluation what/who really matters, the other deals with almost losing a partner and testing their support structures to the extreme.

It can be hard to be sympathetic to what the other is going through and at the same time not resent them for being more sympathetic to your own plight, which ever side you are sitting on. I dare say a relationship that survives something like this is going to go full distance.

Anyway, I took myself off morphine a few days ago and Iíve been ever so slightly emotional since. Does it show?

Thanks for sharing Dwerg. That must be tough.  My experience after a bike accident is that the non-riding family members don't understand our love of biking and they hate that we are in so much pain for something that they think is obvious that would not have happened if we did not ride in the first place.

Only other bikers will understand why we ride ,despite the dangers and pain and suffering and why , in a few months time you will get on another bike despite it all .

My thoughts are with you , I cannot imagine breaking so many bones and having so many injuries. And being stuck in hospital when life goes past, its real dark-night-of-the-soul stuff, but imagine how fine you will feel in a few month's time when you are through it all . What do they say ,  If it doesn't kill you, it makes you stronger and wiser.  :thumleft: :thumleft:

Gelukkig in ons huis het almal bike gery en het verstaan, wat ook gehelp het toe ek myself jammer gekry het, en hulle besluit het ons moet almal TTFU en aanbeweeg.

One of the reasons why I will ride nicely from now on is this strain one puts your loved ones through with such an accident.

Another reason is that I am turning 60 next Tuesday.

Another reason is that today my wife have been married to me for 37 years and I reckon it's worth sticking it out together for the home-run now.

I have my last surgery today to close the hole in my thigh where the femur protruded. That means no more VAC connected to my leg which means unaided mobility!! The bad news is that it doesnít look like the swelling has gone down enough to pull the wound closed which means theyíll be doing a skin graft.

Iíll leave some line breaks before the photo so the squeamish donít get hit in the face by it
Edit: looks like tapatalk removes the line breaks

Sterkte met herstel, die pyn en emosionele gevoelens is nie lekker, Ek en my vrou was presies 'n jaar terug in motorfiets ongeluk.
Het 'n jong bees getref teen so 80-90km/h op my KLE, my vrou het afgeval en ek het op 'n manier bo fiets gebly. Linker knie en been onder knie
seer gemaak en regterhand verstuit. My vrou haar regter gewrig gebreek knee nerwe af, klomp ribes gekraak. Ons was bitter gelukkig om van so
iets lewendig of met grooter beseerings te kon wegkom. Vir my was die ergste toe ek my vrou roep deur die headset en sy antwoord nie.
Ek was ;n emosionele wrak vir dae gewees. Het besluit gaan nie weer bike koop, 3 weke later toe staan daar 'n nuwe fiets in my garage.
Met die ongeluk is ek nog meer bewus van goed om my, en sien elke ding wat beweeg as iets wat voor my wil in loop of ry.
Daai wak dressings is baie goed my vrou hulle gebruik dit ook baie in die hospitaal vir wonde.
Nogmaals voorspoed en veral om 'n ou se minset weer reg te kry.

Very valid post regarding the family stress, it places huge strain on a marriage especially if young kids are involved because the spouse now has to cover both rolls and still find the time to travel to he hospital at night, with the kids because finding babysitters every night is impossible. Not a lekka situation and it put me on a guilt trip a few times but that's what marriage is all about, it's a give and take. Next time it might be your turn to do the running about and playing doctor. It's a motivation to get better and back home because that does help with logistics although you'll miss the nurses at first.

Ek het dit voorheen al vir jou gesÍ maar gaan dit weer doen.....ek is moerse impressed dat jy geen infeksie gekry het nie....veral nie in so oop wond nie.

Na my groot ongeluk paar jaar terug het ek meer tyd spandeer om infeksie te baklei as actual rehabilitiasie. Totaal van 3 maande in die hospitaal gewees waarvan 2 maande (meestal in isolation) vir die virus was wat ek in die hospitaal gekry het nogal: 

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus
Abbreviated as MRSA, this staph bacteria has evolved over time to become immune to many of the most popular antibacterial drugs. Indeed, MRSA can often not be treated with either penicillin or amoxicillin, with most patients requiring higher doses of more nontraditional antibiotics in order to defeat the condition. It often manifests itself in the form of a skin infection in most patients, and should be treated by a medical professional as soon as any signs or symptoms have been noticed by the patient. Staph bacteria does represent one of the most aggressive bacterial threats to the human body.

Hospital Acquired Infections (HAI's) is 'n moerse issue vir die hospitale. Jy kan net soveel doen in 'n plek wat wemel van bakteriee, virusse etc. En al doen jou staf alles itv infection prevention (hande was is nr 1), versprei die besoekers dit vir jou rond. Dan kry jy nog 'n klompie pasiente uit sentraal Afrika wat met goggas sit wat ons nog nooit eers gesien het nie.

Hulle se dit voel soos 'n losing battle partykeer.

Although the wound closure operation went piele, no foreskin or any other skin graft was required. At this rate I there is an outside chance I can be home this weekend
That will be great for your and your wife's morale  :thumleft: :thumleft:

Welcome to the heavy metal club. I still have the iron mongery in my leg (13 screws & a plate) and its not the greatest but I get by.

I can only imagine the pressure you're feeling after that really mean foot incident and now this. Sterkte, treat it like a rally.
One stage at a time. Try to see pain as your old friend, it worked for me. Its going to be sore in any situation so make the decision to not let it control you. Even if that doesn't work it might keep you entertained for a bit.

5 Weeks since the crash today. I started working from home this week. I am still mostly on the couch though and my condition hasn't changed much except that I am slowly getting a bit of strength back. I no longer feel like I need a 2 hour nap after hobbling to the toilet and back and can probably survive on just one or two naps a day. Went for my 4 week check up last week and surgeon wants me off crutches at 6 weeks  :o That's not happening although I can shuffle between the kettle and fridge without a crutch but walking isn't an option yet. Last of the 100 odd total stitches were also removed from the thigh wound last week. Surgeon recons recovery will take at least a year.

Funny story, surgeon had a grade 11 pupil in his rooms observing as she is considering medicine as a career option after school. She watched as the stitches were being taken out, we told her that is where the femur was sticking out. There was suddenly heavy breathing from her direction and the surgeon picked it up and managed to turn and catch her as she was about to pass out  :imaposer:

She still has to observe in surgery but I have a feeling she's probably going to become an accountant

Having some work to do is a bonus, it'll help keep you sane.

I always struggle with watching the world go by and not being part of it anymore. Doing work, any work, helps a lot.

And don't worry about your strength. Once that bone is healed enough and you're walking, it comes back very quickly. You'll feel a difference almost daily. Been 8 months since my leg break and I'm nearly back to full strength.

When you can walk backwards up the stairs, unaided, then you know you're cool .........  :thumleft:

Surgeon recons recovery will take at least a year.

they always say stupid stuff like that.
it's so that you don't sue them if you're a useless fuck,  and heal very slowly.
recovery will take as long as you are prepared to let it.
simple as that.
if you decided that you have to be perfect in the next 2 months,  and threw all your time and energy into it,  i have no doubt you'd be fine.
if you thought the doctor was right,  i reckon a year to the day,  before you're ok.
decide to be better,  and make it so.

Working hard at it. I already fired my physio for not being hard enough on me. New physio is much more hard core. Open femur fracture just takes long to fully heal but no I wonít settle for one year recovery. But two months for full recovery is also a little unrealistic. Just too severe an injury

Glad things are progressing Dwerg.

Exercise as much as possible... my lower right tib/fib was crushed in a Tbone accident, but I was digging trenches in the garden the moment I could wear a leg brace. Doc would not let me go to work as I had a standing job at the time, the physical work in the garden got me back behind the workbench in two weeks. Months sooner than the doc predicted. In those days physio was a luxury my medical did not pay for.

Byt vas, also instead of sitting on the sofa or chair get a pilatus ball and sit on that while watching TV or at a desk/table, you have to use those leg muscles to balance and that assists in recovery. That was my physio's advice the second time round when I fractured the same leg's tibia plateu and it works a charm... at the end of the day you wonder why you feel so tired...  :biggrin:

Just be carefull using grinders later on, they seem to be attracted to scar tissue... :biggrin:

5 Weeks since the crash today. I started working from home this week. I am still mostly on the couch though and my condition hasn't changed much except that I am slowly getting a bit of strength back. I no longer feel like I need a 2 hour nap after hobbling to the toilet and back and can probably survive on just one or two naps a day. Went for my 4 week check up last week and surgeon wants me off crutches at 6 weeks  :o That's not happening although I can shuffle between the kettle and fridge without a crutch but walking isn't an option yet. Last of the 100 odd total stitches were also removed from the thigh wound last week. Surgeon recons recovery will take at least a year.

Funny story, surgeon had a grade 11 pupil in his rooms observing as she is considering medicine as a career option after school. She watched as the stitches were being taken out, we told her that is where the femur was sticking out. There was suddenly heavy breathing from her direction and the surgeon picked it up and managed to turn and catch her as she was about to pass out  :imaposer:

She still has to observe in surgery but I have a feeling she's probably going to become an accountant

Was the heavy breathing not perhaps cos she saw your other thigh bone rising to the occasion??

Started 'walking' without a crutch from Saturday (it's much more of a spastic limp/shuffle) which marked 6 and a half weeks since the accident. The surgeon was not so crazy after all. I am going in on Thursday to have the pin removed from my thumb which means the wrist and thumb cast will also come off so I get my left hand back this week

Easy off road, couple of months I hope. If I had a lower road bike, Iíd be able to do a quick ride on sundays. It would hurt but it will be worth it.

with regards to the weak leg and glute.
exercises with zero weight,  just a broomstick.
at first your good leg will take a lot of the weight,  but you are going to keep at it,  until your bad leg can carry you.
squats - sets of 10 to start,  and once you can do a few,  you increase the reps per set - no additional weight.
straight leg deadlifts for your hamstrings - same routine as squats
standing calf raises while barefoot - flat floor - same routine as squats - once strength is back do them on the door step so you get some 'negative' range.

Like almighty fuck indeed. I've broken a few bones before but an accident like this is on a whole new level. I never really rode fast in traffic but after this I look at guys lane splitting at speed/riding on the shoulders and think "You don't know..... Yet". I never quite realized just how fine the line is between getting a knock and a very serious/fatal accident.

I am doing most of this to some degree. Also got a static bike yesterday to start getting the legs working properly again.

Between unpaid leave and medical bills, I'm broke as hell and medical stopped paying but I still won't skip a physio session.

Post by: Cracker on November 26, 2019, 08:15:12 am
Physio is not so expensive - I found I spent less on physio than on the bikes, so it's a win-win.

I've been back on the 950 once since January. After 3 separate leg breaks, I seem to have had enough. Bones break far too easily and it fucks up quite a lot of your life. I've written off 2019. Might even be selling the 950 soon.

And you just went through the same thing recently with your slashed foot ..................... starts getting out of hand, doesn't it?

But, I've been out on the plastic a few times and still enjoy that.

So don't worry about the bike thing. You'll either ride again or you won't, it matters not which way. As long as it's your choice, you'll be happy with it.

An excersize that might help you, in addition to the broom  :biggrin:

Step up and down off a dining room chair, using no hands. Step up quick, like you're climbing, but step off very slowly, trying to place your foot on the floor, not just drop. Good for strength and balance. Do it with both legs.

Physio is in itself not hectically expensive but I am getting < 2/3rds pay for the next 3 months due to unpaid leave

My bad leg can't even lead onto a brick or step down for that matter. Plus I forget what you call exercise where you stay connected vs switch between connected and separated from the resistance (ie. cycling vs walking) but the latter messes up my bad knee and ligaments in both legs and feet so I am only supposed to do cycling and in a pool type exercise. Open comminuted fracture is about as bad as it gets and the tissue damage on my upper leg is much more restrictive than the fracture itself

Ah, ok, still doing the pool type thing .................. brings back memories. I remember the freedom of jumping around in a pool without those f'ing crutches. A simple pleasure, seems like yesterday. I'm only doing the dining room chair thing now, long after I finished physio.

Anyways, best of luck, Jaco, you'll get there. Always keep in mind that you're now getting stronger every day, while those healthy people around you are actually getting weaker .............  :biggrin:

Just too much for me too handle hence IMHO I would In all earnest go with the life saving story and maybe even join the LSA(Lifesaving South Africa)as a volunteering member in order to substantiate and validate your claim and simultaneously get the all important Lifesaving and Rescue ID and Membership card that could well make your 100 dream come true after all.  :imaposer:  :ricky:

If I were you I would respectfully lay down my gloves and helmet and hang up the boots while I can still walk and reflect on how lucky I was.

I am sure not everyone here will share my sentiment. :pot:

Biking is life, hanging up my helmet is not an option. Just yesterday @bud500 and I were chatting about doing the local off road races next year although I might miss the first few. I've even started window shopping for my next bike. I am however a little too rattled to start commuting again but never say never

Off road racing is a good option imo - get your rides in and take it from there!
What bikes are you looking at?

I've been eyeing 350FE/XC for some time now. But my soft spot for mad two strokes still pulls me towards a 250TPI. The 4t will just be a little more versatile especially if it's roadworthy

Looking good.

This last week of damp weather must've had you feeling miserable.

Bio oil on the scars ( if they bother you) will make them look a lot better.
I was wearing shorts the other day & a woman stopped me & asked if I'd been in a shark attack.
I guess I should have stuck with the bio oil a bit longer then....



Yeah wasnít fun with the weather. But I like the shark attack idea. Iíll be using that. Happened while I was saving a child from drowning

Biometric assesment done this morning. My good arm amd leg are at about 85% strength and my bad leg and arm at something like 55% of that so there is a lot of hard work to come to get back to 100%. Now going to start bimetrics twice a week with home work outs 5 times a week. If I stick to that, I may be back to full strength in the second quarter of 2020

Had a ride out to the local breakfast stop yesterday. Great feeling to be riding again. Cars turning off and onto the road freaked me out something terrible. It's going to take a while to get over that one. I battle to get on and off the 690 (more than before) and when struggling to get on it to go home, some GS riders stared at me like I was a total idiot  :imaposer:

However, the biggest limiting factor at this stage is the ligament in my left thumb. I can't even cancel the indicator and it hurt badly yesterday afternoon. Offroad riding is not going to happen until that is healed.

Yesterday was fun but I think I need to give it another month or so before I try again.

@Dwerg gaan maak 'n draai by 'n kitaar winkel en kry vir jou een van die soos in die foto hieronder. Werk lekker vir verskillende finger oefeninge, ek het dit al 'n hele paar keer gebruik om vinger beserings agv rotsklim te rehabiliteer. Kombineer dit met strek oefeninge. So 'n vinger is maar 'n simpel ding, ek vind in my geval raak die ligamente beter met gereelde oefening maar dit kom maar nooit heeltemal reg nie.

Non-union of the femur shaft?  Wat beteken dit?  Het hy eenvoudig nie geheg nie?  Hoe gaan hulle dit fix?

En T5 & T7 compression fractures... jy het letterlik jou rug gebreek op 2 plekke??

Nie geheg nie. Report se^ bone grafts moet gedoen word.

Dis nog net die report vir die lawyers. Ek wag om te hoor wat my dokter oor dit te se het.

13 months later.....

1 year report indicates non-union of the femur shaft and T5 and T7 compression fractures which were missed at the time.

Everything else has healed well considering.

Still not riding though. Partly physical, partly mental.

Spesialis was happy op my laaste check up maar dit was begin van die jaar. Toe skop daar lockdown en besige werks kwartaal of twee in en as jy weer sien is 8 maande verby. Ek gaan dit nou als vir my swaer aan stuur wat 'n baie goeie orthopeed is

I broke and sprained my wrist a few years ago, so I think I understand what you mean when you say that you are not giving it much thought, but a wrong movement surely refreshes one's memory quite adequately! Sterkte!

Dwerg, I lived with a non-union after my first femur break. I tried some voodoo medicine and an ultra-sonic machine. Biokineticist as well. All a Waste of time and money.

Go for the bone-graft now, it works properly. You'll have to do the 3 months on crutches again but don't worry - your leg will be brand new. Just do what the doc says and don't put your foot down on the floor, ever.

Don't worry about muscles or strength, it comes back very quickly once the bone has healed. Physio for movement only.

You'll know in your head when it's fixed, it's a great feeling.

Was the best thing I did after limping for so long. You'll get on that 690 easy when it's fixed ..................... you'll see.  :thumleft:

And the bone graft op is way less painful than the original injury. In fact, there was no pain at all, just the horrendous bruising.

It's a bit weird to see it in the report because it feels ok to be honest. Just some pain when walking down stairs or trying to jog.

@Cracker  Where did they remove the graft bone from? Is that not usually much worse than anything else in any case?

Sounds to me like the same thing that happened to ETS, they forgot to add glue to the two bone ends when they fixed it and it never grew on. ETS had to have it done months later again this time with glue and it is now perfectly joined.

Well not glue but some stuff they put on the bone ends to help it grow. From what I understand they do not do it the first time, but it it does not join they do it the next try. Do not ask me what the name of the stuff is at least one bone I have not broken......................................yet!! ;D

As an inside joke, the ortopedic surgeons call it "glue"

what they also do sometimes is to chip off some bone (in theatre, under anastetic) somewhere else, like on the outside of the hip, then grind it a bit and mix it into the "glue" and then "plak" it on the crooked joint in question.

As far as I understand itís not like a skin graft where they sample other skin, they just grind down the existing non fixed ends and like ETS use stuff to promote new growth

correct, did my humeris like that
(chip a piece of bone of the hip , use it as a "spacer" where the broken bone is to be mended)
very effective actually

In my case they took three vertebrae that was crushed because of the accident and grinded it up some more and put it in a pipe fusion. It is a cylindrical pipe of titanium full of holes.
Then they stuff that grinded bone and stuff it in the pipe and then the bone "grows" through the holes of the pipe and I now have one big piece of bone instead of three vertebrae.

Post by: Cracker on September 29, 2020, 04:57:14 pm
Yep, they'll take bone from your hip and grind it into a paste adding some plasma, bone, medical stuff - or glue, as yous call it.

They'll remove the shitty ends of the non-union and grind back to clean bone, ready for regrowth. Put the paste in and sew you up.

Remember, the pin is already in there, holding things in place. You'll get more scars and a hip that doesn't like holding your pants up anymore ..................  :biggrin:

BUT, you'll be able to swing your leg over anything or anyone.

AND, after all that, you'll be ready to break the next one.

Yip, they did that with my youngest sonís skull the other day after a brain op.
Works well and the bone then grows together again. They did put plates and screws to keep it all stable though.
Apparently without the crumbled pieces and ďglueĒ it does not adhere again.

Ja dis rof. Ek is baie aktief andersins en geniet my hardloop en bergklim baie. Die idee dat ek vir 'n jaar of twee (of erger!) dit nie sal kan doen nie is vir my baie moeilik. Baaik ry is baie lekker ja, maar sjoe partykeer is dit asof die level van aftjop uit proporsie is met die plesier.
