My season is already over!!

I had an accident at work and blew out my knee. I didn't realize how bad it was until I went in for surgery this past Tuesday. But I did get to ride once to try out my 1000$ factory connection suspension and my rekluse. Both worked awesome, still need some adjusting though. Anyway, I was in the O.R for about 5 hrs as the doc hammered and drilled and all sorts of crap. Turned out he had installed 10 screws and some new wiring in my knee. And then to top it off, I get pneumonia and have to go back to the hospital. What a lousy week. I guess now I am going to be camera operator and spectator for a while. Ride safe and have a great season boys. Hopefully I can get one race in before the season closes, or I'm gonna move to my house in Fl. permanently.

wow, sounds like a tough break...hope you heal up quick....

hey I hope you heal quickly..

Florida sounds good now. But you'll want to move back in a few weeks..

I just went through the whole knee blowing out thing last year in March. I tore 3 of the 4 ligaments. I'm sorry to hear what you are going through (it's tough). I'm finally getting better now. It will take at least 5-6 months before you ride easily. I'm still not 100% and my surgery was May 9th last year. Good Luck man hope all gets better. You'll get to ride again just don't push it and make sure the knee is healthy 1st!

Actually the picture in my avitar is the day that I tore my knee up :applause:

i know how you feel. Im still recovering from hernia surgery. This nice weather is killing me. im dying to ride. Atleast i have a mustang as well:thumbsup:

man that sux, my friend broke his collar bone and need 2 TI plates and 8 rods and can't ride for a while if that makes you feel better :applause: jk man, hope you get better soon and enjoy your new beast

update!!! First day of P.T was today and man did it suck!!!!! Oh well, if it helps me heal faster I am gonna have to do it. The P.T said I am doing great, I already have about 100 degrees flex. I can't push it to straighten it out though, it may cause more damage. She did say with any luck and some hard work I will be back to work:cry: and back on the bike:thumbsup: in about 2 months. I might be able to dial in my suspension finally. Later
