    So went for my 2nd specialist checkup today n got told that it getn there but the bone hasn't totally taken yet n he still concerned it needs more time, so bottom line another 6 weeks before I can lift more than 5kg n no riding till I see him next, bit of a bummer I also had a ultrasound on my shoulder showing that my "bursa" ( in between the AC joint n rotator cuff ) was damaged to that's why I'm getting pain around the joint so although I can finally start light physio it's still gonna be a while till I'm riding again.

    And on top of all that I pretty much got told this is my last chance at keeping my job due to the fact that I can't really do anything, I had lost my license , had a bad break up with the x, screwed my knee n my back , almost died from meningitis and had a blown appendix all before breaking my shoulder ... And all this in the last 2 yrs so they kinda over all my time off which is understandable but is just adding to my stress at the moment, basically If I do race or ride m stuff myself up again or have any more medical issues anytime soon I'm screwed .....

    Anyway I'll stop winging all will work out one way or another... Nothin gonna keep me from living my life n doing what I wanna do

    That sucks man, sorry to hear about the previous stuff but you will bounce back buddy. Life's not suppose to be easy. Hopefully your bone heals up quick mate. Are you still in a sling?

    Went and had another X-ray yesterday. Kinda get over this injury big time. I can't still for long so it's been a tough 6 weeks. Like you, Roy, doctor has said another 4 weeks with no lifting at all. Only shopping(3 kgs and under) but only if necessary. Because the break created small a few bone fragments it's taking longer than usual to heal. He said I may need a plate if there isnt a good amount of healing happening in the next month. I'm hoping no surgery will be required but I won't be on a bike for at least another 2 months. So that's my update. Friggin over it!

    Broke my tibia plateau (bone under knee cap) by crashing a jump landing with my knee on the swing arm, was in hospital for 1 week before they could operate (boring) being on drips and cancelled operation daily finally got operation i required a titanium screw in bone which i will have for life, Cut the story short my foot was red an swollen went to local doctor demanded ultrasound etc anyways i now have a blood clot in my calf which could have been prevented if nurses gave me ONE asprin a day... had nurses come my house giving me blood test everyday for 4 days in a row and jabbing my stomach with blood thinning needles, Now i take blood thinners and get a blood test once a week to make sure my bloods thin which will help my clot from not getting bigger and let my body hopefully dissolve it if the clot breaks off it can kill me via heart attack or stroke hopefully that doesn't happen.. Had my operation few weeks ago was told it would take 2-3 months before i could walk with out crutches well im doing some remarkable recovery and not needing crutches really though i still have my leg brace on and i cannot bend my leg much (stiff) i have read some forums regarding this injury it took people 1 even some 2 years to be back 100% normal, i feel 50% and its been probably 4 weeks! but from a broken bone to now a life threatening blood clot, have also quit smoking for the 1st time in my life for 3 weeks now after smoking for 13 years (im 25 years old) reason being blood clot and also smoking can triple the amount of healing time of broken bones i want to hurry up an heal i go outside and start the bike up eager to ride again (pitpro 150cc) see my surgeon in 2 weeks hopefully the leg brace comes off!!

    Wow mate, that's no good. Sounds like your a mentally strong person in good spirits, I know a young fella with a brain tumour who had a blood clot behind his eye that wasn't picked up and is causing him bad probs on top of his tumour, chin up dude all will work out fine and you will be riding in know time:)

    IF IT AIN'T BROKE, BREAK IT :)

    That sounds crap mate, o well at least it's a good reason to give up the ciggies eh? Can't say i fell much better for doing so, but there is that slight thing in the back of my head telling me it's a good thing so I'll take that as being better for me :)
