My New Hardware!

OK, gotta post quick, drugs are working. I just got home from my surgery to get my clavicle put back together. I already have full rang of motion, I had next to nothing before. I couldn't even come close to lifting my arm to shoulder height, now I can go overhead with it.

More later, my eyes are closing. Ahhhh.. percoset (sp?)

Nice to hear you are getting better but did you pay extra for the carbon fiber plate with the titanium triming or did you just go with all ti.?

Ahh, first nap completed.

Ok, responses:

Hotnanas- I'm going to Dr. Sanders therapist tomorrow actually. Doc said I'll only need two appointsments. I'm looking forward to it! Doc S. came in shortly after I woke up and said "raise your hand." I haven't been able to come even remotely close to raising my left hand to shoulder height even using my right for assistance so I was VERY hesitant. I started to slowly move it and Dr. S. was like "come on tough guy raise your hand!" SO I smiled a bit because by now I realized I had range of motion already! The only limitation is the dressing they put on, not me!

Tony: I'll watch my back, I'm sure along with the Ti in my arm, I'm on a hot list somewhere. I went full Ti, no CF or SS for me. I can't wit for it to start that cool blueing when it heats up, I love that look!

Thanks Lucifer and BigZ!

Scorpio and Flyin: Yup, I got screwed pretty hard. No hug, no kiss, nothin. It's okay, I don't mind being used like a piece of meat (sometimes I kinda like it actually) As far as bills go, I'd like to go ahead and thank the entire MH community, including myself, for their contribution. My new titanium hardware is covered by our tax dollars!

And last but not least, Jetcycles: Factually true. Clavicles are not a necessary bone. Some people are born without them entirely and get through life just fine.

OK, I'm too lazy to cook and I don't feel like getting behind the wheel just yet. I'm going to order pizza for the first time in.... well, since before I moved to Texas.

Great to hear from you all. As soon as the dressing comes off I'll get you all a pic of the incision and stuff.

Mike

Way to go Mike! Nice screws there man. Tell Ed I said hi when you see him tomorrow. Boy you really made the best move. You know one of the worst things that happens when you don't get this repaired is that you keep your are in a sling for weeks and begin to loose function of the muscles around it, plus you mentally learn to stay in that protected position so when the clavicle finally does heal you've got no motion. Then you've got to get past that.

Well enjoy you down time while you have to. Make any decisions about your bike yet?

info on my decision is in here-
http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=49588

In just a week I already found myself holding my arm in its slung position when i wasn't wearing brace. Just walking around like the arm was in a sling but it wasn't.

OUCH!

A friend of mine back in Hawaii got one of those. He shattered his femur, there were 14 pieces you could easily make out in the X-ray


Thanks S M J!
