I was in the boat, and the crash honestly didn't look too bad. That should just tell everyone that the one's that don't look too bad can be...

He went for a 360, which turned into a 3-5-7 something, and he looked to go into the water laid out flat. We called from the boat to make sure he was okay, and he waved us off. I felt so bad to know we left him behind and hurt.

We are wishing you a speedy recovery, and I hope your first comp experience hasn't ruined you forever on riding.

Keep your head up Shawn. I know it doesn't help the pain right now, but I think most here would choose broken bone over torn ligaments...silver lining, right? Best of luck with the surgery, looks like its time to get some DVDs to pass the time.

Shawn,

Hope you have a speedy recovery. Those breaks are hell. I know Allen B and I had similar breaks last year. I was fortunate that mine was not displaced and did not require surgery for the bones. It just sucked for 10 weeks without any weight bearing at all. Do as everyone says and do your rehab and don't try things before your really ready.

Whats up everybody, hope everything is well.
Well today is Weds 8/20 my 5th day in the hospital. I'm still in the same bed from when I got here on Sat. waiting for surgery. My leg is still too swollen to do surgery. They say by the progress so far it should be ready in 10-12 days to operate. At this point I cannot move my leg more than couple inches without excruciating pain. The hospital insists on sending me home until the surgery. I tell them your Fu**ing crazy. I see this will be an insurance battle at the end. I will keep you all updated. Thanks again for all your support. Ride On.

Sorry to hear you are still on hold. Hope it isn't really an insurance issue but more a question of what is medically appropriate for your condition. There are lots of good reasons not to be in a hospital if you don't need to be: resistant infections, bad food, noise, treatment mistakes (wrongs meds at the wrong time). Most hospitals now have discharge planners because the beds are needed,etc.. They can be really helpful sorting things out. Maybe getting a hospital bed temporarily at home, home nursing visits and such. Hopefully you've got family advocating for you. It is tough to take care of yourself when you're flat on your back and in pain. Good luck.

Whats up guys, hope everyone is doing good.
Its Friday 8/22 day 7 of laying in this oh so comfortable hospital bed. The surgery team visited me late yesterday to inform me that surgery will be performed Tues. Sept. 2. I will be discharged today at noon to go home and be bed ridden for another 11 days. At this point the leg and knee is still pretty swollen but coming down slowly. For the most part Im able to control pain pretty well.It takes 125mg of Morphine and 160mg of Oxycodon a day to keep it under control. I am happy though that I get to spend the upcoming time at home and not in hospital bed. I will keep you all updated and thanks again for everybody's support. Be safe & Ride On.

Are u sure the leg on the left is not the nurse laying next to you?jk
I saw Eargasm today and he appears to have lost some muscle mass. With a bum leg and all I think I could take him and make him tap out.

Wow. Can't believe they are making you wait 2wks for your surgery.
Never seen or heard of anyone out here having to wait that long. Of course your leg is going to be swollen you broke a long bone!!

Did they give you anything in case of an embolism?

An embolism is a blood clot that breaks loose, becomes mobile within the bloodstream and lodges elsewhere in the body. How's the swelling?
