Hey guys and gals - thanks for all the well wishes I appreciate it!!! :)

Sunny & eSKaPe have been updating me, so I'm always keeping an eye on you  :mwink:

Wasnt feeling to well this morning but I'm feeling much better today. They not going to cast the leg but have put it in a brace. It still has a drain and block in, this should come out tomorrow.

I have already started physio and if all goes well should be home on Thursday yea!! Going to be testing eSKaPe's cooking skills  ;D

Long road to full recovery ahead, so I'm going to take it easy and do what the doc says so that I can be sure to be 100% mobile again - thanks again all :)

Good to hear!
So the doc said no riding for a long time, but remember to keep the word 'Pillion' a secret from him.  ;D
Great news, my book 'Sniffer' has seen the light of day on Amazon Kindle!

2 years ridiculous. I'd say 3 months max. Strongs with the healing process.

Hey misty! What's this two year business?? I think you're just trying to snivel out of the WD's :pot: I was told I couldnt ride for a long time, but that rumour I squashed quickly, before it became a fact. Am up & riding in 3 months...... you can do the same! ;D
Get better real quick!

Hey Misty nice to see you looking a bit better this evening - hope they get your pain under control soon - Glad they did not have to do the constructive surgery - lets hope that the 2 years is not a reality but better 2 years now than 20 years of pain later.
Hang in there and get better quick.

Please consider hyperbaric therapy, makes bone heal quicker....(oxygen therapy, kinda like a decompression chamber)

I think the problem is where the break is not the break itself if that makes sence

Nice to hear your doing OK. Its early days now, but just when you think you've got the courage to mount a bike again, think twice. You may feel ok, but just a good bump, and all the growth break right there again. Rather get a second opinion. :deal: Wait a bit longer then slowly does it. The risk is just a good bang, in the wrong place and you're back to Square One. NOT Ideal, just for the want of riding again.  :nono:

Time to rest up now.

Misty taking it 1 day at a time for now, lots of rest and starting some physio in between, still a lot of pain, but she should be out the hospital Thurs/Fri this week, on crutches for about 3 months with no weight on that leg - the time factor for healing is like Cave Girl said due to where the fracture is right at the top end of the shin bone where it fits into the knee.

A freind of mine had a similar break, her shin bone split down the middle, also from a hard impact on the foot trying not to fall off, the bone was plates and screwed, took her over a year to recover, but she is about 20 years older than Misty....sooooo, there's lots of light at the end of the tunnel. :thumleft:
