Hey James, haven´t been in here for a while, but I´m sorry to hear about your crash.
You seem merry about it, so be sure to move around and put weight on it as soon as you can, it really helps.
It´s always a good time to tell more scarred stories
I broke my left collarbone in 2008, but was lucky that it didn´t need surgery. I was riding 5 weeks later. Also had a punctured lung and damaged thumb joint in that crash, 4´th gear tabletop when a throttle cable broke...
Then last year I broke my leg (there is thread on TT) and had a rod put in. That sucked, but I could go back to work after 7 weeks.
Then about 2-3 months ago my girlfriend and I messed around and she bent my thumb up on my back. Tore off the EPL tendon. Couldn´t lift my right thumb. Surgery the morning after and 6 weeks in a cast. Can´t bend my thumb now that good but getting better.
Then suddenly my knee locked while sleeping. Turned out the doctor who fixed my leg had left deveral pieces of bone in my knee that had "calcified" and were 20mm big and wedged in the knee joint. Ouch, had to work for a week without being able to straighten my leg. Had the pieces taken out last thursday, so I´m hoping for some riding this saturday.
You see, some people will always have more bad luck...
Get well James!
