I had a Gnarly Motocross accident on 12/19/04, Ended up breaking some minor sissy bones and my right femur, hit an artery, too foggy to fly me by
helicopter, damn near died from blood loss, needless to say, finally after being transported by Ambulance to a local hospital, they sent me to a
hospital that could do this surgery, they put a 2 ft titanium rod in my femur, 3 screws, and capped the end of my femur where the rod was inserted.
I was back on a 4 wheeler within 6 weeks, of course I had to keep my leg up, but I was on crutches walking the day after my surgery, the 2 months
after surgery, my leg size shrunk to half the size of my other leg, I got a big butt from sitting on my arse playing PS2 and XBOX all day on pain
killers, With the daily ride on the four wheel on my land in the back yard, 3 months after I was back on a big bike riding, at that point I could limp
everywhere, with a horrible horrible limp, but I could stand on that leg only for about 5 seconds and not fall, couple months after still limping,
Going to PT, but I was back on the bike Racing semi pro again. Took about 10 months before things stopped hurting.
Now I still have the rod in, but when it gets cold it aches, when I hike deer hunting, my knee gets bad and gives out. but I can still race like a pro
dammit! ha ha its not too bad, just keep up the PT ( Physical Therapy ) and you'll be fine!
