20 fractures in femur + patella
« on: December 28, 2010, 03:08:12 AM »
G'day to any responces ! ;)I had a stack on my 3month old 09ZX1400 on june 14 2010, I hit the l/h corner of a tray top ute at only 20-25kmsph,my knee took the full impact of the collision, it was when without being aware that when I tried to stand up the femur came through the side of my leg 5cm from the patella, I have 2 screws in the patella and 8 in the knuckel + 2 12cm up then 2 at the top of my femur, after several x-rays since and now the results of a  CT SCAN last wednesday 22/12. I have bin told that there is no bone internaly link up at all there is a void of 12 cm ! and when they can fit me in some time next ????? I will be having a bonegraft taken from the front of my hip + some type of filler,this was a kick in the guts as I have got all my muscles back working good and thought I could be riding in a couple of weeks and going back to work.the doctor was good saying im not gunna say you will be good in three months ! at best it will be 6-12 months after the next surgery date of ????? any way is there any one out there with a similar injury thats had what im facing ! with your recovery time ?? thanks again  if someone can help me out. from Stephen

Bean that is one nasty looking break and hardware set up.  No wonder you are having a few difficulties. :o
