So November 23rd I was hiking with some buddies all amped up about next weekend being my very first day of the 14-15 ski season.. Some drinks were consumed on a cliff face and before we knew it it was getting dark fast. On my way down I was made the decision to turn off my phones flashlight feature and while hopping down an embankment took a little bit of a tumble.
A couple of days in the hospital and I don't know what was worse, the drill through the bone to put it into traction when I told them I'm immune to lidocane (I'd say that was a 10 of 10 on the pain scale), The repeated failed attempts to catheterize (I won't go into more detail on that one), or the fact that I knew my season was over before it started. They gave me a titanium rod in the leg. With medical instructions that were weight bearing as tolerated.
In the months following PT has been rough but I've been getting better quite rapidly, here's the latest x-ray taken 2/12/15 last thurs at 11 weeks since the accident. Potato quality but you can see the bone sedimenting out and forming a callous
I'm hoping to be able to get back to the slopes next month but it's difficult when they had to snip many of the hip muscles and the quads to insert the rod into there in surgery.
Anyways that's my story, don't go hiking drunk in the dark when opening day for your season is a week away.
