    Good - the end is in sight.
    Can imagine what the clicking is like as i ran into a very well known car specials builder in town the other day. He's well over 80 but still building specials...however, when he spoke, his badly fitting false teeth clicked away like mad....very distracting.

    Had the plate out today. Woke up, instant relief. Elation. Then food, yum.
    Then nausea for some hours on and off. But no biggie.

    Then lots of warnings to take it easy, not lift anything, wear a sling for a few days. That's a drag, but overall very happy.

    More metalwork.

    Upper 2015

    Lower 2010

    The shadow shows the right angle bit that makes it a hook plate and probably why it can be uncomfortable in your joint.

    Jesus you prick krist! I wasn't going to post on this thread but I'm sick of this. 4 months and multiple fractures on 5 ribs (again ) but they are taking forever to join back up again.

    Dirtbike this time. 3rd loop it started to rain. Funny thing is I was having a connection day where I was feeling slick. Steep Downhill grass.

    One minute my hands were full.
    The next they were empty.

    Didn't seem like it would be that bad. As I hit the ground I knew what had happened. Winded I kneeled put of the path and rotated my shoulder. Not broken. Hooray. Ribs for sure I knew.


    Had to ride down next gnarly hill. It was either that or ride on a quad. That sounded worse. Took 15 min.

    Oh yeah. And hip bursitis. Need injection but it's been months.

    My padded shorts have release area for improved movement. Wanna guess where the sore spot is?

    Planning bike with electric start. 2 stroke obviously.

    2 weeks ago I went to a dirtbike park venue for a 50th. Rode junior course in 2nd just so I could ride. Very sore after. But also slept badly when couch looked appealing at about 4.

    Broke 2 ribs 3 weeks ago. So much fun. Broke one front and back.
    I was just thinking Yesterday. I'm about the age Hitler was when he shot himself. Puts into perspective how little I've done with my life.

    Bummer. My theory is the less you break the more support so should heal quicker. Like the 6 weeks people quote.

    I broke 10 on that side in 2010. All I did this time was trip over the dog while running. It has settled down, but I still have to sleep in a recliner. Lying down is right out.

    Yeah I had 4 weeks in a recliner. I still feel like lying down is not helping as it is sore to do so but I was so fed up after that long.
