On the DL for next 3 months.

I type this one handed, Friday morning I slipped and fell at work, when I impacted I dislocated my left elbow and shattered the bone above the elbow. This morning the orthopaedic surgeon, used metal parts to put my elbow back together. I will be in a cast for 6 weeks, then in a splint for another 6 weeks while they do physical therapy on it, this will leave us in the dead of winter so no biking until spring. I do get to miss the busiest season of the year at work though.....

I would like to state here publicly, that I would like to thank Drs Auguste (surgeon), Tansey (fracture clinic) and Benz (ER) and the wonderful staff at the Finch site of Humber River Regional Hospital for the wonderful care I received there. Because this happened at work, the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board will pay the bill, and will pay me until I am able to return to work. A weeks planned holidays will be cancelled until I can return to full duties at work.

I'm so sorry to hear about your accident. It sounds painful!! It's good to hear you have good insurance and good doctors taking care of you though. Maybe the physical therapy gurus will let you ride their stationary bikes some...I think I'd go crazy at this point if I couldn't do anything...take care and let us know how you're doing!

Wogster,

Just about to come off the DL after 2 months off the bike due to herniated cervical discs (neck). During that time had to avoid putting any weight on the arms, or getting into any kind of bent over cycling position. Also, no surfing, no windsurfing, no mountainbiking (even with the family) no golf, no weight lifting, no pushups, no situps, in short none of the stuff I usually do. It was not a lot of fun.

What I was able to do -- go on treadmill at the gym, walk the dog, (not sure what equivalent is for cats) is and of course, spend more time at home with the kids -- kept me from going completely nuts.

Hang in there.

It actually hurt worse before the surgery, they had me on a Morphine drip, now it's actually less painful, just taking Tylenol 3s, right now my job is to get better. I will be updating the list occasionally, but otherwise will be in lurker mode.....

There was ONE GOOD THING Dr Benz said "how much do you weigh, around 180?" I responded closer to 200, but man that felt good....

I know, I do need to be really careful with diet though, I don't want to put on a lot of weight, while I am lazying around the house, and not getting the massive amount of walking and lifting I do at work Fortunately at work, the guy who used to do my job, was unassigned, so they will assign him back to it until I return. He did finish my Friday shift, and it was a mess, so I am secretly pleased about that.....

Yeah I know, some aren't easy though....

Did get some nice numbers from the hospital though. like a Blood Pressure of 112/76, one person said they would kill for numbers like those, in the best of times, under the stress of injury.....

Final biking numbers for 2007:
Total Distance 2056.7km / 1278.0 miles
Total bike time 114 hours 22 minutes 12 seconds
Calculated calories burned 89,582
Weight lost (gained) based on calories 11.6kg / 25.8lbs

I'm happy with that.....

Bum deal, I wish you a speedy recovery.

Sounds like a recumbant stationary bike is in order. A tread mill will also help keep the fitness level up while the arm heals.

Update...

I was back at the fracture clinic today, they took some xrays, and then took off the cast, had a look, everything looks good so far. Put a new partial cast on, and they want me back in two weeks..... As soon as the doctors say I can do some work, my employer will get me back to work doing something.

Orthopaedics is closely related to carpentry, with some drywalling thrown in. My wife took pix, which I will post somewhere tomorrow......

Yup, it's one of the interesting parts of the Canadian medical system, yes we have national health care, which pays for a lot of the treatments, the idea is to also get you through recovery as quickly as possible. People heal better at home then in hospital, so it's not uncommon for the hospital to do all they need to for a patient, then send you home.

The original surgeon said full cast for 6 weeks, the surgeon today says partial (slab) cast for another 2 weeks, then they take the 25() staples out, and it may be just a splint while the occupational or physical therapist starts working it back to mobility. The OT/PT gets to assess it, and decide on whether I can do some modified duties at work, and how long, until I can return to regular duties. Which could be several months.

I mention Ntnl Healthcare, only because, with it, they tend to want to get through the process of treatment as quickly as possible, because there are always other patients willing to take your place. They did my surgery at 9:15am, and had me heading home by 6:00PM, the same day. Besides you heal better at home anyway...... This case however is covered by the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board, a Provincially mandated and Employer paid worker insurance system, it's intended to encourage employers to deal properly with safety, by varying the premium paid, based on the number and severity of injuries. It deals with these cases as part of it's mandate. They also pay workers while they are off from work recovering. The difference is that WSIB has different coverage limits, for example the provincial health plan does not include dental, but if you break a tooth at work, WSIB can cover it.

Too many people don't treat politics the way they should. Every citizen of a country has issues, and has the right to present those issues to the candidates, and when you find a candidate who is willing to treat those issues the way you want, join their team, and work to get them elected. If Americans want national health care, then Americans should ask every candidate how they would implement it. Then join the team of the candidate that gives the best answer and get them elected.

A president who has a full set of representatives, a full set of governors and a full set of senators all wanting to deal with the same issue, the same way, has little choice but to do something other then say no. Although a US plan would likely be implemented on a state by state basis with some federal funding, similar to what happens in Canada.

Okay, another update....

The cast is gone (yeeeeeeeeeeeehaaaaaaaaaaaw).

So, now it's on to Physiotherapy, the doctor said, the metal plates are holding things together nicely, and he wants me to get it moving again, even though it's far from completely healed, he said that if we wait for it to be completely healed, you would never get it to work again..... The doctor did say I could go back to work, with restrictions, there isn't much I can do one handed, but in contacting my employer. they assured me they will find stuff for me to do, but likely at another office of the company, that is 1.5 hours by transit, I can't drive the way things are, so transit will have to work for me..... I meet up with the P/T on Monday, which is a 5 minute walk from my house..... Nice thing about going back to work, is the regular pay cheque, and there is only so much mindless TV blather you can handle.....

As long as I have enough range of motion and strength to get back on the bike come the end of March, when we start getting decent biking weather again, I'm cool with it.....

Fortuneteller or not, the Physiotherapist, who specializes in sports injuries, he should know, did say no problem getting enough functionality for next season Whether or not I will be able to toss around 100lb TV's or not, is a different question..... Although the fact that I have A fairly physical life style will make recovery easier......

Going in to work tomorrow for modified duties, be nice to get going again, there is only so much daytime TV a guy can take......

Final update on this thread. I'm officially off the DL, now if only Winter this year would get out of the way so I can ride.

Someone wanna fire that groundhog already (maybe with some garlic and a few herbs), early spring, yeah right, looks like the February blahs this year are going to turn into March depression. Just looked at the TWN forecast for here in Toronto. Thanks to Colorado we have a storm coming tonight, with about 9cm of snow, then the weekend, more snow, , Friday 5-10cm, Saturday a trace, 5-10 on Sunday, 10 on Monday, we could be looking at another 40cm by this time next week (16" for you Americans), were going to be looking at the %$#@&!* snow mountains until %$#@&!* July.

My bike hasn't seen the road since the end of October, I was on the DL up until a couple of weeks ago, now it's just this %$#@&!* snow, we got more in February then we normally get during an entire year. Enough already, the off season shouldn't be 6 months long. I wonder if I could get my doctor to prescribe Florida
