Old and Busted update........ :pinch: :( another 2 weeks before I get to go back to see the doc for x rays to see if my fractured bones are trying to heal :blink:

I'm wearing a knee brace and I've ditched my walker and am now able to get around with a cane :S i feel sure (fingers crossed) that some healing is going on :unsure: moving slow............ :ohmy: still I'm suffering from bike withdrawal even with all the pain not a days goes by that I wish I could throw my leg over a bike and ride.....all I can do now is hobble out to the garage and look at them :ohmy: I do crank them up and let them run a couple minutes though :ohmy: seems the rumble of the engines has a calming quality for me ;)

best regards, Old and Busted

UPDATE: :blink: my fractured tibia and fibula bones are slowly healing :( huh: another week or two before i can get a pre op physical.
I'm getting around a lot better :) using my cane :unsure: pain is still there but i'm able to manage most of the time without pain meds. :blink: :) :) I'm so glad to be fairly mobile again and be able to get around with less effort.

:laugh: I am able to ride my "meanie" as my leg isn't bent as much with the forward controls. :S I have tried to ride my EX 500.....still to painful :ohmy: riding with my knee bent produces extreme pain :ohmy:
thanks to all who have wished me a speedy recovery.
Regards, OLD and BUSTED

I figure I have 10 more years if I'm lucky. Heal up soon. Like to see a action pic of you on the bike. :)
