Re: Screwed up...

Sorry to read about your accident (just). I broke my pelvis as a teenager playing hockey and spent 8 weeks immobilised. Didn't have the Internet in those days so no nice nursy pics to help me along .

I guess if you're going to throw yourself at a mountain the best time to do it is 'out of biking' season. Get well soon and best wishes. Andy.

Re: Screwed up...

Sorry to hear about your "incident", heal quickly and well.

Not that this is much consolation, but both the U.S. National Ski Patrol and Canadian Ski Patrols emphasized pelvic injuries in our outdoor emergency refreshers this year. So at least the patrollers were up to date in care processes for getting you off the mountain.

Pictures of Nancy Green brought back lots of memories from my days as a tech rep for Rossignol, Dynastar and Authier skis.

Re: Screwed up...

Hey man. Hope you get better quickly, and don't go all Rush Limbaugh on us, and are able to ride your machine once the rivers and the frozen tundra thaws.

I saw that ostrich thing, but then got distracted by this:

Pretty humorous. Don't laugh too hard.

Get better soon.

Pretty interesting bud,

I used to be ski patrol also back then...

Question: How fast will you permit the toboggan to go down with an injured skier in it?

Or would you consider holding the toboggan at each corner, 4 of you, and not let it touch the ground on the way down...

As for Nancy Greene, I would love to meet her.

Cheers

Ouch, Louis!!
You sure do know how to take a loooong vacation with lots of people serving you.
I'll add another nurse to help care for you... since Fran did such a great job.
Hope you heal fast.

Traumatic pelvic injury can have a lot damaged along with possible several internal bleeding.
Pelvic sling, load and go. Reduces the time and less chance of dropping someone.
For us less than 250 meters vertical urban area, the EMS is less than 5 minutes away. They usually are waiting for us, it's quick to pass on to advanced care.

In the mountains, we just headed to the copter landing zone.

Will watch last night's championship game today as guests showed up for supper last night just as the game was about to start.
Yeah, they also brought the meal!
I've reduced the amount of painkillers to half the prescribed amount to better feel if I'm doing something wrong. I can feel every movement in my groin, though...
But best of all, Lucie has flown in for eight days and might prolong her stay.
Might have to play the pity card...
The staples came out on Sunday. I finally had my first shower in two weeks!
I keep getting reports how the skiing is fantastic... Buggers...

Thanks for your thoughts bud

Cheers

Re: Screwed up...

Not everyone is enjoying care free days...

While maybe thinking of feeling sorry for myself today, stuck in my chair looking out the window to the lovely snow covered mountains surrounding me, thinking of possibly cursing my bad luck, got a piece of mail that reminded me I could be worse off and that others have problems too...

Got a pm from an I-bmw member who'll remain anonymous by his own wishes

"I Screwed Up! Monday I was coaching (lay coach) the high school boys varsity soccer team. Wet, muddy slippery field. I slipped, went over the top of my ankle, landed with all my weight awkwardly on my knee that was bent crookedly under me.

The result was not a break, but the most serious degree of "high ankle" sprain you could get. I am not as bad off as you, Louis, but I am in a boot for 6-8 weeks. Crutches for the first two."


Not sure if I'm any worse than you my friend...
Hopefully you'll heal good & fast and be able to train for the half marathon that you intended to participate in.

All the best bud, my thoughts are with you.

Re: Screwed up...

Finally was allowed to go out last week and went to see the orthopod at the hospital. He announced that the pelvis is stable and gave me another month under house arrest without any activity and no weight on the right foot ... A couple of days later I figured that I wasn't in enough pain so I promptly developed a toothache on an upper molar. Knowing my predicament, my dentist wasn't convinced that I should go out of my house and go to see her. She phoned the orthopod and he nixed that plan... Now I'm on antibiotics besides all the damm pills that I'm taking...
Worst part is that is that I can't have any booze anymore...
Not that I was taking much, beer or wine mixed with painkillers can screw up your digestion... But I was having some with my meals in moderation. Back to bland...
So I cut down on the painkillers to alleviate the poison I'm feeding my stomach.
I'm finding out that many positions now involve some level of pain. What I took for granted before was in fact masked by the meds. So it's prolly a good thing.
Still snowing every day, missing out on an epic ski season...

Oh well...

Okay, I'll bite. The online translators do not make sense and my French is very rusty (and was Parisian rather than Quebecois). It must be an expression so -- what is it in American? (English would be okay!)

There is a bit of Quebec slang there so I am not surprised computer translation would not do a proper job.

MARTEEN expression, roughly translated means:
Do not let go buddy (hang on) , it can only get better from here...

Re: Screwed up...

Still sitting around watching the bluebird days we've had in the last week.
Great skiing I'm told...
Had an interesting conversation with my physiotherapist this week. He explained that the type of break that I sustained is going to involve a lengthy recovery. A real lengthy one...
Had it been a bone break, it would already have started to mend. Being the open book type of break, it's all cartilage and ligaments that were torn apart. For that to mend properly, it can't sustain another tear. The bench where the metal plate is screwed into can not be subsequently reworked on. Not much surface to work with. It's like a one time fix. Not much of a second chance.
That's why I'm non weight bearing on my right leg till at least next week. If I'm lucky, I'll be given permission to put less than 10% weight bearing on that side. The second part of this recovery will prolly last at least another two months...
I'll post the picture of the X-ray when I get my hands on it.

Cheers

Is that pic upside down?
Is that an erection?
That X-ray technician must've been pretty... and/or pretty sexy...

Sorry for this mishap, knowing you are an extraordinary skier Louis. Myself and Luce did not know about it.
I see that you had an "open book" type of injury on your pelvis. I had te same type of injury on september 28 2007. I then crashed my K1200GT 06 on route 75, 10 miles north of Helen GA at Deal's Gap Rallie. I suffered a 30 mm (1,18 inch) opening at the junction of the 2 pelvic bones. But, I had no bone fracture. The meds let me like this at the hospital in Gainesville GA. Got back home by plane on crutches and it was reduced to 20 mm (3/4 inch) 4 days later. Then progressively less. I recovered well in about 4 months and was able to resume running in March 2008, wich is I still do.
I wish you the best Louis.
Charles

Re: Screwed up...

Martin's knee surgery reminded me of my accident. I had a slight fracture of the femoral head.

Thanks Chuck, guess that it will take four months or so...
The difference between yours and mine is that my book was open 7 inches + !
The orthopod told me that had it been an inch or so, no surgery would have been needed. Time would have done it's job.
The collateral damage sustained was extensive as many muscles were torn and the digestive system, instead of being a nice compact affair, was all over the place. He said that the whole thing looked like a dog's breakfast!
I'll be seeing him tomorrow. Looking forward to knowing the next step...

Cheers bud

I understand that my "open book" at 30mm was nothing

Bye Louis
It wasn't nothing! Au contraire!
I now know how much time it takes and you've been there.
Basically the same process except mine is somewhat a little more complicated because of the metal plate and the screws and that there is no going back for a second chance. That's all!

Re: Screwed up...

Went to see the orthopod yesterday. He likes what he saw.
He reexplained to me that going back in to fix it again would NOT be an option...
So keep acting like a paranoid and stay off the right foot. He told me that I could NOT fall down, to keep the crutches with me at all times, keeps the others from running in to me... So no crowds, etc..
He said that I should put my foot on a scale and see what 15 lbs max felt like. That's the maximum pressure allowed on my right leg for the next month!

On the plus side, he gave me permission to drive my car!

So today, to celebrate, I went to the dentist to see what that toothache was about... Ended up getting a root canal...

Getting there...
