My story
« on: January 15, 2005, 05:53:18 AM »
A few days before my 16th birthday I was in a car accident,the doc told me I had a tibia patella fracture.  My tibia was spilt in two the doc said it looked like some one to an ax and split it in two. my patella looked like a jigsaw puzzle. After they put me back together,it took a plate 6 screws and a pin. I had a hole they had to fill so they took bone from my hip and put it into my leg they after that they had a hole the size of a dime so they took correl reef from the ocean and filled it up.  I now have a scare from above my knee to the middle of my leg also a few small ones where they used cameras.  I also have a scare on my hip.Well I am now 26 almost 27 and I'm doing just fine.  Except for occasional pains.  I quess I just wanted to give a little bit of hope for some of the new leg suffers.  Keep your head up it'll work out. And please pay no attention to the fact that I can't spell.
