So hoe gaan dit daar ?


Dit gaan al baie beter ou maat - nou net met hom op sy selfoon gepraat.  Hy loop al effe rond.........  en die feit dat hy sonder gips oor die weg kom, is amazing!! Die staal pen doen glo die job van binne af!

My enigste bekommernis is dat hy 'n valse sense van security het..... ek't vir hom gesê hy moet wag dat sy dokter sy been afteken...! 

hy moet geduldig bly, goeie rehabilitasie nou is cruicial vir die toekoms. Sê vir hom hy moet bietjie by Blouberg gaan kniediep loop in die seewater. As daai pen en skroewe eers die geleiding optel van die koue water sal hy wens hyt sy krukke by hom.

Know exactly what you mean as I'm going through the same thing myself.
Chat to your physio, mine gave me a super masssage that worked out all the knots & kinks & I feel much better.
I also got some Trepiline prescribed by my doc which is helping with the aches & nerve pain at night time.
( I take Tramahexal SR150 in the mornings for the daytime pains )

I also spend a lot of time on a CPM (continuous passive motion) machine at the physio which is a gizmo that constantly flexes & straightens the leg while you just lie there - it really helps.

get well soon

one of those super masages sounds great right about now, so far I've had to resort to self masages which are not so super.

otherwise thanks for the addvice, i have an appointment for Monday and will definitely stop by the physio department before i leave.

good luck to your healing as well  :thumleft:

Well - the time has come & gone and basically - Dirk's leg is sorta healed. He can pretty much walk without crutches and the docs are happy with the progress. He was told that in about 3 months time... the leg should be suitably strong and same as before.

He's been chomping at the bit to get going but had some repairs and issues with the DR200. Unfortunately the kickstart is still stuffed - so he push-starts the bike to get it going (I'm not going to hoes another R1500 for the shaft & kickstart  :eek7:)
Dirk was keen to try and start the XT550...... but with a grimace on his face he agreed that his leg was not able to handle the weight yet. I did however let him have a spin on the XT.... and he came back with the biggest grin ever!  :biggrin:

So he came to visit and I handed him his new ATGATT - the Akito Desert jacket fits him perfectly, new Fox gloves, Bellstaff trousers and O'Neal boots............. oh and of course a unique new "London Bike-Safe" vest! (which he posed in, I then sent the pics to the MET Police instructor and he's re-posted on their main website.....  :thumleft:)

The pose......... especially for the MET Police... just to show them what blue skies & sunshine looks like!




Very proud of his kit!






Ready to go.... huge smile (oh the sunglasses are new too!)




Thanks again for all the support guys & gals!!

I agree..... it was just stink-hot and he'd not gotten used to the jacket yet. He took the vest with though.... he'll definitely be wearing it...

Money in the bank. Ek moet elke dag met my kinders baklei. Hulle wil net nie glo, dat die dag as jy dit nodig het, koop dit dalk net vir jou daai ekstra paar sekondes.

ouch sorry to hear..i think it had alot to do with the positive people around me and a drive like no other to get off my back!

i really do hope that all goes well and can only hope you are up and running just as fast as i was  :thumleft:

it sucks having to drag those things around every where with you but suppose its necessary.
get well soon and all the best!!

going great.. was back at work for the first time 2 weeks ago on Thursday, and they asked me, "so hows your leg doing?"
answering with hype, "yeah its getting better and im fine to walk and what not." next thing i know they throwing a 40 kg bag of sand AT me to carry!  :o haha any way coping well and haven't stopped moving since!!

k#k thing now is they made me take the builders holiday with out pay, only because i worked 2 days and then they didn't need me for the last week :(

i think the push starting is helping with strengthening my leg, and im willing to keep doing it as long as i can ride :ricky:

hopefully ill be seeing you all soon for a trip to Cederberg??
