Great seeing you the other day and thanks for all your help. Strongs with the recovery. We'll go for a ride soon-soon!  :thumleft:
Only a pleasure, Jo. To you and all the dogs that have taken the time to SMS, BBM, phone and visit, thank you so much - it's a privilege to be a part of a group like this!

To White Rhino, a special thanks for braving my wife's wrath by bringing a copy of Sport Illustrated, including the Swimsuit calendar for 2013. I put it up in a prominent spot in the house, and so far just sideways looks, but no snotklap yet  :patch: - Priceless!
Pleasure, Twas encouragement to swim - very good leg therapy :biggrin:

Hope the infection is sorted and you can head home ... :thumleft:

Hey Tony,

I was on my way to see you this afternoon when an idiot turned in front of me and I T-Boned her with my bike...

I'm OK - sprained wrist and bruised shin (going for X-Rays tomorrow).
Bikes front forks are stuffed - hope they don't write her off!!!

Sorry I couldn't make it - heal up my man. Hope you don't die of boredom.

Replied in your thread - this damn breaks my heart - so sorry that an honourable intention is now costing you! Let me know what the doc and the mechanic have to say please.

Bliksem Tony I never dreamt I would share your misfortune. Shaterred right tibia at the top. 5 pieces. Bones graft, kak house full of meccano in the top of my leg as well. My cut goes stright to the top of my knee otherise it looks the same. Getting queesy reading about your drill bit and stuff. Man its quite a juorney hey.

I have bloody steel staples holding the cut together, not stitches..At least those things are out now.
Lying here at home feeling sorri for myself, but forgot about that when I read about your infection. Pump the full course of antibiotics man, go for 13 day if necessary, watch out it doesn not return.

I just hope I dont have to wait 9 months before I have my steel out. Just started phsyio on Monday, and my bloody leg is still sore 4 weeks later.

Any wise words you might want to share?

Hope youre walking fine soon boet :thumleft: We will have to take a picture together sometime of our scars  ;)

Well they got the lab results - "No Culture". Thats good news, but seriously, they had to use a 4 day lab test to figure out that I have no culture - could have told them that in the beginning!

BB, it seems like a long frustrating journey, but it actually goes quickly and every step forward is a milestone to celebrate - remember the feeling when you could take your first pee without a bottle, or a simple shower - its amazing how quickly we forget the victories - look for them and celebrate them.

My biggest learning is to go with your gut - you know your body better than any doctor - if something doesnt seem right, moan and complain, and if you don't get the reaction that you want, go and see another doctor. I was damn lucky that I insisted that the metal had to come out - if I had not, they would not have found the lurking infection in good time and who knows what damage it would have caused.

Today the wound is dry and swelling right down, and I am feeling great - cant wait to get the garish stitches out next week. Then 1 more week with the brace, and I can walk attachment free!

Thanks again to the dogs for the visits, messages, posts, etc. - they really make a huge difference.
