Well, I have only one screw. But wait, I also have a cadaver ligament or two that I'm proudly wearing in my right knee after its unfortunate meeting with an oak tree. Does that count?

Brutal thread. I think I'm going to ride home a little slower than I rode to work.

January 6, 2012.

Going into town for dryer parts.

Stop sign, Cadillac, don't remember what happened, but I was cited for making an unsafe movement. I do remember a female voice screaming, yellow fender, sky, road, sky, road, sky, fence post, dirt.



My Left Kankle:



My heavy metal:



My orthopaedic surgeon is a rider.
He figured he'd save me some money by removing the long screw at the bottom in his office.
That was an adventure.

That looks very familiar ^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Broken fibula and separated ankle... the two long screws are now broken (4 years later) but they don't bother me so they are staying!

I dunno about scary. If you think about it for a moment, this thread is full of folks who have pretty bad injuries that are either riding again or looking forward to it. Without the surgical options that are available now, not many of us would be as active as we are.

Probably one of the lessons from this thread is that although injuries do happen and surgery is called for and modern orthopaedic surgery can put together just about any bone disturbance, the spirit, the essence of the reason we ride is not lost but in some way enhanced.

Fear of mishap is not a good educator, but awareness that a lack of diligence can have consequences is.

For me decisions are thoughtful and awareness of the road is paramount to a good ride, not an uneventful ride but a ride that delivers all that I demand of it. No surprises.

New member to the metal club here. Ti rod in right femur after a what should have been a total non-event dirt nap with 1200GS.
Except that this time bike happened to land on me making the the femur a "crashbar". Bike didn't suffer any damage....

In the first operation the bone got set rather crooked, a revision was required to set the leg on straight. The revision op was really rough.

As it's already been mentioned, removal of this kind of hardware can be tricky and in my case it was. The supplied tool didn't fit the rod and they had to fab a new removal "socket" while I was cut open. They really do have some sort of metal shop at the orthopedic surgery area
Took them two hours to remove the first hardware.

Has anyone on here, who had a broken arm/elbow, used one of these?





My surgeon suggested it last week since I am five months out and still only have about a 90 degree bend to my arm. Insurance won't way the $1900 price tag. Stinks cuz I could gain my ROM back so much quicker with the device, but insurance prefers to pay up to $8000 in PT visits and prolong my recovery.



So I am wondering if this little contraption is worth me paying for it out of my pocket or if anyone has a used one for sale....
