It could be worse.. it could be your arm. Life is tough. Hope everything goes ok for you.

But just sharing. 2 years ago I tough I was with very hard problems... than when talking to a friend of mine I hade to face this lesson:

translated..
" hey... do you remember XXXXX (wont give names) ?
-yes.. i do

- He got in a motorcycle accident, he hit his hed and damaged brain.. he lost vision and broke his back and has no moves in any member. Although he still listens and is councious. The doctors said they can´t do anything and he will have to leave like that for rest of his life!

"


Never again in my life I complained about anything.


Just hope everything gos OK for you. But if not.. just remember this...

Yes, life's a *****, but remember in life there is great capacity for other things too. Just look here. Many of us are on terms with people we would never have known otherwise, and are saving each other's lives in the virtual air, all for a common cause, fun.

Remember, we're always here for you when you need us, and so are the people back home with you who love you.

It all sounds trite, but hang in there. Despite all the jokes, they are really professionals and they spend a lot of time gearing up for this. I'm sure you're in excellent hands. I've been going through a load of surgeries myself for some hand problems and it isn't fun but you just have to stay positive about the whole process and things usually work out. Good luck and I hope you get the news you're looking for. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

92SqnGCJimbo - It is understandable to be scared and its ok. Once the operation is over you have to be committed to recovery and the new chance you have. Now it is up to you to follow all your doctors and physical therapist instructions and get yourself well again. You'll do fine and be on your feet before you know it. Your rehab will be very important to your future. Make the most of it. Keep us posted and you'll do fine!

Good luck to you and like some have said already, your most likely in great hands. That being said even the most gifted of Dr's sometimes forget to factor in will amd spirit.

When I was 19 I fractured more than a few vertebra in a fall. 1st they said it was unlikely I'd walk. Then it was changed to walk correctly. Finally to you will never pick up over 40 pounds. Took almost 3 years to rebuild strength and coordination . Until last November I worked constuction. Turns out they were right about those things but almost 22 years off the mark.

Like Toads siggy "Never give up"

When any of them say to you "You won't" you tell them " You watch me" Good luck m8

Here's hoping it'll all come out good. That's a pretty significant surgery.

A while back I had to have a procedure done on my genitals. If it wasnt a succes, the likleyhood of being a parent outside of adopting would be all but a fantasy... And D*mn did it hurt!! &gt;_&lt;

Anyways, you'll be in my thoughts comrade!

A positive attitude throughout the experience and determination in physical therapy goes a long way.

I suffered two burst vertabrae and an incomplete spinal injury seven years ago. Through therapy and good fortune, I recovered enough control of my legs to walk again. As soon as I graduated from a walker to a cane, I started riding motorcycle again--AFOs, back brace and all! There's always hope, even when it comes to walking and riding again or having children: <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by: Amon26

Needless to say, I've had a lot of luck in my life. I wish the same luck to Jimbo and Amon26.

Mate,

I sincerely wish you the very best for a speedy recovery from whatever may come of your operation.
Despite all the political BS that flies around about the NHS, you'll be in the hands of a team of dedicated health professionals who will do their very best for you.

I suffered a brachial plexus lesion and multiple fractures to my right arm and shoulder, in a traffic 'incident' ten years ago last Christmas. I had the arm taken off a couple of years later - it was totally paralysed - and it really was good for mobility not having to drag it around. The surgeons at Stanmore were fantastic all the way down the line.

Now I regularly attend Frenchay Hospital (nr. Bristol) for the Pain Clinic - another great team who really want to help - and I go there on this

A little advice from someone who has delivered the very best in health care to patients. I know what I'm about to say may sound strange and maybe even insulting. The day before your operation, you need to take a permanent majic marker and write upon the leg which is not to be worked on...

WRONG LEG!!!!

The closer you are to walking normally (but not quite able to), the harder it is to deal with. People stare, you can fall down sometimes, it happens. It's strange that people in general are less curious about a person in a wheel chair than they are about a person that walks with a limp (or two).

If you put your mind to it, you can resume the activities you enjoyed before. For me, it is motorcycles. Due to paralysis, I still don't have the strength in my feet to lift up the toes of my boots, yet I learned to upshift a motorcycle using my heel. When I first started riding again, my legs weren't strong enough to hold the bike up. I worked around that by leaning the bike on my bent knee. The AFOs (ankle braces) I had to wear kept my ankle basically rigid, so it was about the same as leaning the bike on a stick.

With workarounds like that, there is often a way to still enjoy activities you did before. The key is accepting what you are now capable of, and keeping a positive attitude, always.

I gained a positive attitude while in a spinal injury institute. Companionship with others who were worse off than I taught me to appreciate what I could do, even if I wasn't "normal." In such a setting, the successes of one help his companions. My good fortune gave others hope, and the will to keep going with physical therapy.



I guess what I'm trying to say in all this babbling is that the key is your attitude. If you get that right, you'll do well whatever the outcome.

I can relate. Almost 25 tears ago (around Christmas time also...hmmm) I was in a serious car accident and had my right arm severed. they talked abut amputation and ultimately decided to put it back on and hope for the best. I had plasctic surgery on my face and multiple skin grafts. I made an adequate recovery and have about 80% mobility in it. The pain is there everyday and any weather changes make it unusually tough at times.

If nothing else I feel lucky to even be here and can appreciate what you're going through.

After doctors put plaster casts on both legs he was told that it would be at least one month before he could walk again let alone race motorcycles.

When you go back remember these few things that helped me go through a lot of surguries.

"SPONGE BATH"

It also helps if the nurse looks like Salma Hayak like mine did. Made me forget my split chest pretty fast.

If they ask you to turn over to take your tempurature.....RUN!

Never order the creamed chicken for dinner. Ask a visiting friend to bring outside food if the creamed chicken is on the menu.

The plastic jug hanging on the side of your bed ISN'T a convenient water jug.

Wheelchair races down the hall are frowned upon, but make you feel SO much better.

And nothing will speed your recovery more than getting home to comfortable surroundings.

good luck when you go to have the job finished.

Robert
