Time for mittens?
Can you still hold a schooner in one hand?
At least you can still type!!!
Honestly, that is a total shit, hope you are OK and get well soon.
Good vibes sent.
Ouch HNY @nfip
One large one medium glove.
That is no good @nfip ..good luck with the recovery and i hope it doesnt effect the guitar playing too much.
Typing on tablet LH with stick / wand thing
Fortunately it's middle and ring fingers so not as bad as index n thumb that are much more critical use.
Wasn't much fun 2.30 this am when the nerve block wore off
but im pretty lucky in the big picture when you read all the other stuff thaat has happen so in a positive headspace.
Now a thread recommended mittens for japan !
Sorry to hear.
Winder guide wheel on the goose neck (with wide spreader attachment for soft sand and quick release shifter) will be the risk management remedy for the surf club here, I think.
I was half an hour off!
Oh,man what a horrible way to end the year.Lots of liquid pain killer when the pills run out.
Do you have a link for this Pow ..?
Have a formal de brief next day or so , reviewing SOP's.
Most likely will effect the whole organisation.
Just like a pneumatic Jockey wheel, but with a crank or quick release.The ones with the hinged attachments (not the one pictured below) allow it to ride parallel to the trailer tongue.
Without sounding like an unsympathetic, OH&S nazi, you should never 'have' to manually lift and drop a trailer...
Many variables loading and hitching on the beach.
Usually the acces to the sand is in the gutter / deepest hole so is steepest edge to the water and if any surf as on Saturday it's a quick snatch n run.
The big flat bars , that are better to load are not so easy to get ski to trailer to ATV.
OHS goes nuts we can only launch from a ramp.
I'll have a good at these on pc and definitely put them on the table.
Appreciate your input.
How are you travelling @nfip?
Number one son was showing his brother a few scateboard tricks on Christmas Eve when it all went pear shaped and he took a bad tumble. The scan results came back today and he has a torn ACL and maybe a fractured tibea. There goes Japow 2019
Leave him at home.
He'll be fine by then if he does what hes told by the physio.
Assuming the tibea fracture not too complicated.
Going pretty good thx mate.
Weaning myself off the Panadeine Forte , trying night-time only if I can manage.
Popping Nuerofen rest of the time tho when it starts giving.....
De-brief with SLS this morning , first of several I suspect.
@nfip Tommi Iommi, Django Reinhardt. Nuff said. See you in a month...... with mittens.
Oh bugger ... Be right for Japan ? As mentioned before... mitten time . Recover fast
Yeah reckon I'll be good to go.
I'm normally a quick healer, had lotsa practice ! .
Don't forget to get a passport endorsement if you need to carry any heavy duty painkiller........
Will ask hospital on Friday about this.
Think that apart form the wound check up , I also have consult with physio t get the new finger tips working back in the loop
Surgery isn't until April. He probably won't have time to fully recover plus loss of income won't help either. This was always going to be a group trip and everyone else has pretty well scrubbed it including me. I might have to settle for September slops at perisher again.
That won't help going into Japan..
you need to apply for a Narcotic certificate.
@nfip Even made the local paper
Soldier on mate. You not the first here to ski with one busted flipper.
Not my first decent injury.
Plenty others here, and everywhere else with bigger probs than mine (hopefully) short term set back ..
Only gotta look at the roads
Physio has given me a take-away program now that I’m mobile so we can get back to travelling. It includes practicing walking on my toes... so for your amusement...
Reminds me of this
Just as graceful and elegant hey @Charlie
Still plugging away. Turns out the muscles were corked more than torn. It seems if that's bad enough and you don't get therapy bone can grow inside
Ouch! Do the work!
I have to say I’ve been smashing my physio exercise routine. I’m actually amazed at where I’m at, really didn’t expect to be this far along. 1st thing in the morning, and if I’ve been sitting a while then I walk like a duck. But, after I’ve been moving for a bit I can walk without any noticeable limp on even surfaces, with caution on slopes, up stairs are no problem but downstairs is still very slow and steady. I can’t quite land on my toes and lower properly so I tends to stomp downs stairs a bit flat footed... it’s a work in progress. Steep up slopes are hard too... big stretches I’m using 1 crutch in public, mostly so other people give me a bit of space and latitude for slowness, and here in Bali o the uneven ground it’s a help.
The neuro-orthopeadics crowd say motion is lotion.
Each winter I get sore knees and use elastic knee braces to warm them up before I hit the slopes. It helps big time. The pain area is directly below the kneecap. Last night doing nothing (legs up watching Netflix) my left knee started getting sore in that spot. The traditional rub just under the knee cap made it worse. As the night wore on, the pain grew. Why????? I didn't do anything. I woke at 2am in pain and struggled to get back to sleep but strangely enough, by 7am when I woke, there was barely any pain. Happy chappy. Having to do BAS crap, I spent most of the day on chairs and again, the pain returned. Still there. I will seek professional advice tomorrow if it continues but I hoped someone may have some personal experience or suggestions to guide me?
If you're like me its Patella Tendonapathy. See a sports physio to get the appropriate stretches and exercises.
Epworth Rehab has a large sign on the wall saying exactly that
Sounds positive, relatively. Thanks. Weird how something can happen out of the blue - mid 50's stuff??? I wasn't doing anything strenuous at all - driving the tractor for a few hours, vibration etc, but no impact or twisting of any nature.
I've been to a exercise physiologist recently to get pre trip program for legs and core.
I get regular intermittent pain same area.
Thought it patella tendonitis...
He commented mine may be related to meniscus damage.
I am on my feet most days , some days stuck in Office.
I don't jog , to avoid more impact on shins and knees etc.
Find a physio etc as @Telemark Phat suggested.
Good if you find one can keep tabs on you moving forward.
The guy I check in with now did my rehab when I did ACL a few years back so is perfect go to for me...
