Re: Your worst kitesurf injury ?

indeed by far worst injury ever experienced... I am bit confused on the recovery times.. I hear a lot of people with tp fractures are much more conservative (no weight for 3 months, like you) but my surgeon is much more aggressive.. he put me on a knee bending machine (CPM) 2 days after surgery (with a 10 degree increase every two days) and actually told me that even two weeks after the surgery I should start putting a bit of weight on my injured leg..and he told me it is ok to drive and fly so I was back at work 1 week post op..he even told me that I might be back in the water in November.. not sure whether he's just an optimistic guy, or whether my fracture is more stable (it did look pretty bad on the xray).. I am hoping I am not doing too much ... and I am not spring chicken either, nearing 50..wind chaser wrote: ↑Wed Sep 13, 2017 12:49 am
Yes, this is by far the worst injury ever experienced. Not so much the pain, but the very slow rate of recovery. Sounds like you're recovering much faster. I got 9 screws and a plate. Can only bend 45 for now and not expected to bend 90 until october. No weight on it until 3 months (late December)...2017 Season is over. Can't even go to work till October...bored out of mind. Buddy sent me a melodica so I can kill time making loud obnoxious reggae and blues noise.
best of luck on a quick recovery.
