Strongs to ya Misty, I'm sure you'll on the road/gravel soon again. Unfortunate part about biking, a person more prone to injury, but that doesn't take away the thrill of biking.

LOL, thanks Rob, but that is one record I could gladly have lived without ;) 

Yes, I’m too lazy to search, but what exactly happened to you and was it your knee too and to what extend? How easy did you find it to start bending your knee, and did you trust it though? And are you riding again?

Maybe others who have broken a bone can give some advice too, seeing this is my first one, and I’m giving it my all at the physio, apart from the knee bending exercises as it freaks me out too much and I guess I’m afraid of hurting the leg again – or is this just normal and do I need a mind adjustment??

Misty, mine was the right hand Tibia plateau... my hardware looks similar to yours!
I presume you are still in plaster? Once that comes off the progress should become quicker. :thumleft:
My accident was 17 Aug and by 7 Nov I was taking part in a fun walk... with the aid of a crutch though, it all depends on attitude and how soon you get mobile... the physio helped a lot both physically and mentally.
I never ride without my Thor knee guards anymore... they have saved that leg a few times since the accident. :thumleft:

No wonder the swelling is so bad - it's not swelling it's hardware  :o

Thanks for that Rob - perseverance and hard work ahead - mine wasnt casted at all just in a brace set at 30 degrees to start off with. Just had another physio session and the physio spoke to the doc and he said no aggressive physio for 6-8 weeks still, and that he doesnt want me bending the knee more than 40 degrees at this point, so a long way to go still - the main reason for this is cause all the ligaments between the knee joints were very badly torn and he had to repair them too

Ja put into that light CG I gotta agree :)

I was lucky, did not tear any ligaments but fitting the hardware also involves some of the ligaments so I also had to take the bending slowly at first... mine was from basically dropping on the knee with my weight as well as the bikes... paving is unforgiving. :-\
I have fun testing metal detectors... >:D

All the best, Misty.  I'm sure you'll bounce right back.

It's nearly a year now, and the screws in my left hand still ache from time to time, but nothing serious.  On the bike, I forget it completely..

Yup, unfortunately NO walking, hiking, running, swimming, etc for at the very least another 6 weeks... can you believe 2 weeks already gone!

:) Weened off the painkillers over a week ago and I feel much better actually, as for the 4 walls...

Hi Misty, mens kan baie verander in mens se lewe wanneer jy beweging het, maar die four walls het baie mense se lewens verander, na die negatiewe toe.  Ek is nie 'n guru nie, maar ek glo jy moet positief na alles in die lewe kyk, al sit jy tussen die 4 walls.  'n Glas is altyd half vol, nie half leeg nie, en onthou water kan nie in 'n glas inloop as hy onderste bo is nie, die ontvang kant moet boontoe kyk om te "receive".  My 2 cents.

Ons dink steeds aan jou en weet dit sal goed gaan.  Wees 'n goeie pasient, en doen wat dr sê.  Tyd is maar 'n relatiewe faktor, en as jy sien is daar 3 weke verby, dan 4 en dan ry jy weer.  Sterkte, P & M.
