    That's crap, sorry to hear that Jim.
    Get well soon brother.

    I reminded my mother of the time I broke my ankle on a push bike at the weekend and the fact she refused to take me to hospital for 24 hours on account of her expert medical analysis that it was " merely a sprain"

    Bet the hair is still in the same position though.
    Simon no longer owes me anything, Dave does though.
    Floyd probably owes me at least twenty with the interest rolling up...

    Broke mine as a kid, playing in the garden. Dad finally took me to A&E a day of 2 later, when he decided I had actually done something as I was still in pain.

    Ouch.

    Not yet broken any bones. I tend to dislocate them instead. I woke up a day after snowboarding in Japan to find one of my collarbones pointing down and one pointing up. That was unfortunate.

    Hope you heal quickly, Jim. In the meantime, I'll assume that you were attempting VMax on the ebike when it rejected your presence.

    Same as that, thankfully!
    I've had rocks and other extraneous stuff lodged in my arms & legs from crashes whilst B.M.X. racing back in my youth, but never broke a bone... Actually, come to think of it, I did break my nose in a harmless incident during a University Faculty Ball, but that's a whole other long story...

    Sounds similar to my injury although the propulsion was curtesy of my own man power not a cheating motor :)

    My collar bone is forever broken and Ďslap repairí surgery on my rotator cuff and labrum had a proper recovery period inc lots of physio.

    Hope it heals quickly for you. Shoulders are really complex muscles.

    My physio always cited shoulders as complicated, with poor bloody supply (long healing time) and lots of nerve endings (sore).

    Do the exercises the physio gives you. My guy reckons tbat nearly half the people on his books wouldnít be there if they did what he told them to do...

    Thatís very true. Until the surgeon looked inside mine he couldnít tell me the extent of the damage.

    On the NL scale of pain:
    0 = Bruising your foot kicking your car
    3 = Al/Peach's minor biking fail
    5 = Child Birth
    10 = Darren's hurty toe.

    How are you feeling today?

    Ouchy done both of mine, both with a bunch of ribs. Second one took over three months before the two ends thought about joining. Try sneezing great fun

    Broke mine, then promptly became an expert in collarbones as i'm such a pussy when it comes to hospitals / needles / surgery etc

    Options depend on the nature of the break, the potential size of overlap of the bone when it heals (i.e shortening of the bone), and your attitude to surgery

    Mine fully snapped.

    1. It could be left to heal, for up to 12 weeks. Take vitamin D and get in plenty of calcium to promote bone growth. The collarbone doesn't grow quickly . Recent research by leading specialists (there's one in Guildford i can recommend - http://www.guildfordupperlimb.co.uk/ Anthony Hearnden) shows there's no point only waiting 6 weeks

    Depends on where it's broken and how. I now have a 'z shape' along my bone where it patched itself together.

    If it looks to shorten by more than 2 inches it'll cause issues with dropped shoulders so would look to operate anyway

    Due to muscle wastage in the 12 weeks, you'll need to do physio for a while afterwards to get your arm moving again

    General recommendation is not to move the arm in the meantime. Not that you'd want to tbh.

    Sleeping isn't much fun. Showering gets easier.

    2. You can get in and have it plated. Long term, a few cases have seen the plate needing to be removed as the bone moves in a weird way so screws/plate can come loose. It's not ideal to keep the plate in forever if you want to continue to do 'risky' activities, as a further accident could see the plate come through skin etc

    But you're proper old so it may not matter

    They used to stick a rod into the bone but realised that weakens the bone and is a stupid idea as you'll get a rod doing damage if you have a further accident

    Shows how medicine/surgery is just trial and error

    3. Might be dislocation rather than a break, which some docs say is "worse" because you're then more prone to it popping out again in future.


    Hope you haven't got a nasty break

    I tried Pilates yesterday for the first time. My tummy hurts today, especially when I chortle.

    As a result, I feel like me and Jim are buddies in pain caused by misadventure.

They're still gaining! 5 mins later I hear the first guy about to come past, he wheelies past me, and carries on for about 50yds! Flash little twot! But damn I wish I was that good

    I had frozen shoulder, FCUK me that hurt! Losing muscle mass is a pain to get back, as any imbalance cocks the job right up, and can lead to more problems. Do the exercises!

    I've come off my road-bike just once, when an elderly lady drove at me on the wrong side of a narrow road. I ripped my left arm & leg open on impact with a stone-wall, and she was gracious enough to drive on regardless.

    Ha ha. I posted it up for a bit of sport. I just felt like it was the most pathetic thing I could write!

    Truth is, my body is pretty wrecked after 25 years of playing rugby, Iím having to take some time out to focus on flexibility, mobility and core strength. At 38 years of age, groaning like an old man when getting out of the sofa was already wearing thin. Pilates seems as good as anything.

    I thought it was a piece of piss when doing it - 2 days later from session 1, my abs are still full of DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness), so it must be good for something!

    I do pilates alongside other training.
    Turns out, doctors know what they're talking about.
    I had cruciate ligament reconstruction when I was 18, my knee let go in a big way again after the op, so I left it as I wasn't interested in playing sport.
    Fast forward 25 years, and I've been compensating so much my entire right side is weak, and I don't even walk properly anymore.
    This was all discovered when I tried to increase my running so that I could do 5k, but all that happened was I ran incorrectly, and nuked my ankle.

    The amount of sweat a decent pilates instructor can generate just from using your own body as resistance is ridiculous.

    I used to go to the gym, until I spotted a hole in my trainer, so I stuck my finger in. She complained, and I was banned from there.

    I reckon a few days Toyota-based hostility in Le Mans will have done him the power of good.

    Still stings a bit, thanks Rory :)

    Le Mans was a good distraction. Had to relocate everything one morning though, which was an experience that Iím not keen to repeat.
