Re: Carl Dodd
first thank you all for your wishes ,*
Got out of hospital Monday, *25 days after the crash.*
You might think thats a long time for a broken ankle ?
I wish that's all it was, to start with my whole left foot has been smashed
So there is nowhere for the tibia to fit too & the fibula has *fractured. They have put in some metal work, but it's early days yet.
my right foot although its very*bruised *appears to only be soft tissue damage.
my right knee still has some swelling & seems to move in & out of joint , will be keeping an eye on that!
*My ribs, Ohh my ribs, *by far the most pain, *6*fractured ribs in a row, left side round to the back, never have I felt pain like I have with my ribs,
And still giving the most pain.*
To top it all off, trying my best to get home they took another x ray of my chest to find I may have an infection in my left lung , they give me antibiotics witch made my feel *ill ! * So then they give me a ultrasound scan to find out I have fluid and not an infection, he then did a chest drain overnight, to my surprise he removed 3 lts, yes 3lts !! *Another x ray and it showed clear*
Would like to say that wearing bike gear saved me from more injuries *
* And the staff @ wrexham hospital are terrific .*
Nothing left to do now but take time to get better,*
And yes ___get back on the bikes.*
See you @ the treffin on the 13th but I will not be traveling by bike. Lol
