Man you have the luck of the Irish. Hope you get out of the cast soon.

I spent a year in a cast. 6 mo from a ski crash, and riding my motorcycle with a half cast for 3 months. Out of the cast for 2 months and dumped a bike doing motocross. That put me back in a cast for 6 more months. My left leg's calf is 1/2 the size of my right leg. That was 40 years ago.

I am hurting all over for you ,man, after reading this. Boy your luck is running bad right now.

Did someone go to the job site and roll up the cords and pick up the tools?

Just hope you get better,and the doc can ease the pain for you. It is sure a bummer being laid up as you all ready know with your back.
Keep us updated on your return journey.

Went to the doctor in Jackson on Monday. Broken bones were different then the original ex-rays shows.i broke it where the ankle attaches to the tibia and because of the way the ankle twisted it broke the bottom of the fibula. 3 screws and about 6 weeks before I can really put weight on it. In 4monts they will take the 3rd screw out. Then a more perminat fix will be done where that screw is located. I'm still in pain but no where as bad as the waiting the 2 days before surgery. I only spent Monday night in the hospital because the surgery was done about 7PM Monday, got home early Tuesday evening.

That flomax is good stuff. I put on some body fat in some odd places after starting it.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Round items are aerodynamically perfect I hear. So what the problem?

I should tell you about the time when in the Navy I got a weekend pass out of the hospital after knee surgury and went water skiing.

Thanks for all of the well wishes. leg still hurts, that's mainly because I've eased back on the pain meds. It's sill cold where we live so the house has been on the cold side. My wife can't lift the bags of wood pellets to haul them out of the basement. The bedroom was a nice toasty 51 degrees when I got up this morning. The sun helps heat up the rest of house but the bedroom is on the north side of the house. But all is good summer is about another 4 months away.

Again, thanks everyone.
