Dam!

<Throws up a protective "spell>

I had my LAST bout of road rash <knocks on wood> a couple months ago and am still sporting a few nice red marks on my legs, surrounded by a multitude of prikker bush scrapes when I decided to venture of a trail and discovered why no one went there ..... Yowser!

Yeah. Didn't make my saving throw last month when I tried hucking off a three foot jump, got torn up, cellulitis, admitted to the hospital for four days. Have not made the opportunity to ride singletrack since. IV antibiotics = not fun.

I must not be riding hard enough. I haven't crashed in over a year. And the last time I crashed really didn't count. I flopped over while trying to unclip.

eeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwww!

gee i wish i had had presence of mind enough to take a photo of my last injury- even a mountain biker guy who saw it right after said, that looks bad! It was a nasty crash that skinned my elbow, needed stitches, got infected, antibiotics...there's still a piece of gravel in there! i have an appointment on wednesday with a surgeon...consultation to see if they want to remove it. Maybe i'll get photos of the surgery...

Must preface these by saying, they weren't caused by road rash... or biking in general. I had AVN or avascular necrosis (like Floyd Landis)
and the docs all said if nothing else, cycling helped keep my dying bone round longer and staved off the pain until surgery better than nothing at all.




dual total hip replacement here's the proof!
