Crashed my bike on Saturday.  Waiting on MRI, but based on exam the Ortho says 99.9% chance of torn ACL, potentially meniscus as well.  Peace out, season.  Fuck me.

Damn BUG! shit. I'm so sorry man. Hopefully it's not that bad.

 

I'm not going to get to ride how I want to, but I guess I should be more thankful I'll get to.

Thanks, dude, I appreciate it.  Fingers crossed.  It actually doesn't hurt bad at all, but ROM is fucked, and it's super unstable.  The waiting game for the MRI is excruciating.

 

Best of luck with your deal as well.  I know how injuries that you can ride through still throw you off your game.  Hopefully it's a quick heal.

The thing is I'm dumb.

I'll 100% try to do too much too soon. I can't help it. As soon as it feels a little better I'm going to try and use it. And tendons will pretend to be okay until you do something that refucks it... only more. I wish I had just broke a bone bc at least that lets you know it's not good to go. I haven't even got to my first physical therapy session and got an understanding of what I SHOULD be doing with it and I'm already trying to see what I can do with it and pondering how to get back into the gym. (note: I didn't fuck it up in the gym).  I always skated on my rolled ankles too soon. I need to chill. I just don't know how.

damn, hope it’s an easy recovery @c-fuzzy & @buggravy

no serious injuries for me, just a lot of bumps and bruises i’ve never gotten looked at that have piled up over the years. my right shoulder has been bugging me the last year or so, definitely limits my lap count on the tow rope.

So the most serious injury I've had, which has followed me for the rest of my life was pretty brutal.

I got ran over when I was 17. This resulted in a spiral fracture on my left tib/fib, complete tear of ACL, MCL, PCL, and almost total loss of my Medial Meniscus. Took 3 surgeries, back then (1991) getting your leg/knee fixed was way different than it is today. First surgery was same day to put my leg back together pins/plate. I was 17 and my growth plates hadn't closed yet so they wouldn't do the ligaments in that surgery and they were really worried about blood flow and nerve damage. Turns out by SUPER luck of the draw no nerve damage ( very rare in spiral fractures ) and blood flow was back to normal almost right away. Doc told me I was 1 in 100 on the luck scale for spiral fractures in the lack of complications I had. Two weeks later had a scope and they had to remove almost all of my shredded Medial Meniscus. They gave me a immobilizer brace for my leg and a cane and told me to keep coming back every 6 weeks for an x-ray to see when growth plates closed to put in new ACL, MCL, PCL. They wouldn't do it until then because they were worried with so much that had happened, the new ligaments that were tight could make my leg grow crooked if I had another big growth spurt when taking the spiral fracture and pins/plate into account. Nine months later they say the growth plates closed. A week later got cadaver ACL, MCL, PCL. 

This has followed me all my life, which is why I just had to get a total knee replacement this March at the young age of 45. Doc who did my replacement told me the arthritus was so bad he was surprised I had made it this long still snowboarding. Said it looked like I should have had it (knee replacement) done 5-10 years earlier.

Found out this morning it's a full tear of my bicep tendon. Going in for surgery on Thursday. Looks like if I get to ride this winter, I'll be lucky to get one in at the tail end of the season. *insert shoot myself in the face emoji*

Well this happened two seasons ago in December 2017. Got clothes-lined by run separating rope that was basically invisible, shadowed, no flags, disappeared with the horizon etc. It was tied to some wood posts cemented in the ground so it didn't give at all, I just got folded over myself and slingshotted back on the ground. Was going about 35mph according to my gps. 

Internal bleeding, torn mesentery, portion of my intestines removed, and 30 staples up my abdomen. Two total weeks in the hospital. Two years later and this scar still fucks with me every single day.

You unlucky bastard... Hoping the best of luck to you. Any risks or a pretty standard procedure that just takes time to recover from?

Sounds like possible risk of nerve issues. One is standard, and the other is if I'm an unlucky percentage. Other than that... seems a routine procedure and recovery. 

For me and everyone that has to be moving and doing something, the down time is going to fukk me up. Even with my full tear I've been hitting the gym and lifting what I can just to keep my sanity.

Fingers crossed for miracle recoveries.

Why were you going so slow?

 

J/K. That looks wicked painful. Glad they could make you mostly whole again though. Jeepers.

Damn dude, sorry to hear.  Unfortunately I got similar news as well.  Fully torn ACL, lateral meniscus tear, tibial plateau fracture.  Surgery on 12/18.  Mammoth is usually open until at least Memorial Day, so I'm hoping I'm on snow for one last hoorah then, but that will be 5 months, and doc is telling me 6 - 9.  We'll see.  I totally hear you on going crazy as well.  I already feel fucking gross.  No cardio for now, limited to upper body with weights, but my shoulders are already starting to feel the strain from hammering upper body workouts, and my bad lower back that was kept in check with deadlifts, etc., is already starting to act up.  Gonna be a long stretch.  Best of luck to you for a speedy return to stuff.

I hope you get that ride in. I was hoping to get some WROD this Saturday before they scheduled my surgery for Thursday. No dice. 

I'll be the opposite as far as cardio only for a while. Maybe core, and legs on the isolation machines. I'm dreaming of deadlifts.  

Best of luck to you as well. Keep us updated?
