Well, Im iced up right now.(just taking a quick break) LoL, went riding in the woods yesterday and lets just say that i really need to put a weight on the flywheel on my yz. I took a hard fall on the ol' shoulder last night, got home and went to the ER (figured id go this time). I hate hospitals. Oh well, good news nothings broken.... mobility is seems to be good. I look like a hunch back though. Im self employed so no rest for the wicked! :bang:

Do you have a hard plastic outer chest protector? I have found them invaluable in the low speed, land on your shoulder type crashes.

Today the doc said I tore some ALC ligament or something. I had this big ball of fluid on the side of my leg and he numbed it and then god this huge needle and took all the fluid out. There was blood in the fluid so that means I tore it :(

So, did you break the femur again or was it "just" ligament damage.

(I say "just" because that type of damage seems to take longer to heal than bones)

Oh man! I did hear years ago that two kidneys is way more than a person needs. Apparently one kidney is more than enough for normal function.

How long did they keep you in the hospital?

I'm glad it didn't turn out any worse, but man...that sounds bad enough!

Now I'm very confused because I had the MRI like 20 min ago and the MRI guy says that the ACL is in good condition. The doc wasn't sure I tore it but when he drained the fluid he said if there's blood in it that means I broke it but the MRI says I idn't tear it :whoa:
