I got an IM nailing with 3 screws on april 20th and I still cant walk due to the poor cast job... I miss working so bad and I cant wait to get back to school. EDD is wack and if I can't get up soon, I'm gonna lose the tacoma... Now, I know someone has done worse, so make me feel better
Pics coming soon
well dates are a bit hazy but if you want the short version of everything:
cracked skull 6 times from age 3-16
right tibia x2
right fibula x2
left tibia x2
left fibula x2
fingers & toes x23 (right ring finger today as a matter o fact)
right radius x3
right unla x3
right humerus x1
left radius x1
left radius x1
T1-4 x1 (4 vertebrae of the spine)
and my left clavicle requiring a metal plate and 6 screws to be put in. The segment over my left shoulder basically disintegrated and the remaining piece broke in two. Then in my sleep the broken piece in the middle broke through the skin when i was sleeping the next night and I was rushed to surgery the next am.
My advice is to find a video game or something you can get into for the time being or a hobby you can do that doesn't require a lot of moving around or you can sit for.
PS fyi i drink milk like its my job I just had a tendency to do alot of "stupid" things when i was younger. I also used to downhill longboard race which lead to a good chunk of those bones breaking.
