PeaGreen

I saw another thread somewhere else on the forum about recovering after an accident and got me thinking I hadn't seen anything from PeaGreen for a while - does anyone here know how he's getting on?

    Did he fall off a ladder and catch his leg in it on the way down??
     
    Would be good to see how he's going, I don't post much on the boards anymore but still read

    I speak to PG regularly, he actually emailed me this week.  He's fine and well; just busy.
     
    I'll email him this link; I'm sure he'll fine it emotional that he's loved and missed!

    Hi everybody, thanks for the message, James let me know you were asking after me - very kind.  I'm still around but tend to lurk more these days on MT. 
     
    It has been almost 3 years since my accident, a complete life changer on so many levels.  As Ras said I snapped my right leg, breaking both tib and fib, losing 3" of bone from the former.  I have spent the last 2 years having a number of operations/skin grafts and finally a bone graft to actually start the road to recovery.  It has been a frustratingly slow process with very little support from the alleged specialists.  I also destroyed my ankle and lost the cartilage in the process and that is now showing signs of further complications, as the ankle seems to unexpectedly lock, causing a few awkward falls.  It also sometimes takes a while to get any movement back.
     
    I now walk with a stick, not having been given the go ahead to be fully weight bearing.  I have my own spaz badge to park my spaz chariot, which is a bonus lol.  Being serious though there is little likelihood of any normality, or at least what I termed as a normal life before the accident (including all the water sports I used to do).  I finally bit the bullet and sold my Bike earlier in the year, 6100 miles on the clock. I simply don't have the strength to support it if it fell.  I also can't walk very far and the constant pain causes immense tiredness and fatigue.  Unfortunately it has also caused a few mental health issues, which has been difficult for me.  The future - well it depends on how long I can live with the pain - possible amputation in my future.
     
    On the plus side I rescued a boxer dog, her name is Pier, as in Clacton (pronounced Pia) who forces me to be more active than I would, which is good.  I finally published my first novel earlier in the year which can be purchased through Amazon (plug lol).  I am training and have been for a while, much to the specialists complaints, hovering around the 100 - 104kg mark.  I planned to try for 115 but I fear I am never going to be able to gain my wheels of old, I am trying though.  I also moved back South as I realised just how isolated I was up North with all friends and family on the South coast much to their relief.  I'm sure there is plenty I could say but I am sure that's enough.
     
    Hope everyone is well?  I'm getting there but still a long way to go.

    Hi Pea, glad to hear you're doing ok. Don't be a stranger. Unfortunately unwritten MT rules state that you cannot mention having a pet without posting a picture of said pet. Sorry mate, that's just how it is. Pics of Pier please!

    Good to hear things are fairing well all things considered. You come across a little more up beat than you often used to (which was entirely understandable). Great news about the novel, that must certainly be a welcome distraction to the daily rigors, as I'm sure Pier is too (altho in my head I will always pronounce this 'pierre')

    We have a white boxer dog, and support boxer welfare Scotland. Their great dogs bit sadly many can't cope with their crazy personality.

    I had a bad motorbike accident in 2003 had a stick for a couple of years, lots of physio though and back to normal just a few scars and two bones sticks out more than they should.

    Bump

    James, are you guys still in touch?

    Yes, we are. He's doing ok, a bit better.  But still having trouble with his leg.  I'll see if he can come on again

    Hey everyone
     
    Thanks for the thought, apologies as I don't get on here much, I tend to read in the background.  Nowt really to report as the progress on my physique hovers around the same point, I did hit the 110kg and then promptly had a viral infection and plummeted back down to my usual 100kg.
     
    Anyway I'm pretty good on the whole, my leg though is not so great.  Having spent nearly four years with it, I have been referred to two new specialists who think the bone graft has died?  I was in for more scans last week and am awaiting the outcome.
     
    Depending, I pretty much have two options - the first, a below knee amputation, funky blade time.  However a second specialist is in tow because there is the possibility of a procedure that could regrow my leg!!  Basically depending on the blood flow and other factors, they can physically remove the damaged section and then lengthen the leg.  It means a lengthy time in an external fixture, which after the section is removed, they literally stretch the bone and force it to grow back to its old length.  As I say its a painful and long procedure but the benefits will be that it will have a healthy blood supply and bone marrow through the leg, where as the bone graft was solid.
     
    The immediate question was why they didn't do this originally?  Well the truthful answer is that my leg was too damaged to even allow for a fixture to be attached.  My ankle was shattered and there was not enough bone integrity to even attempt this procedure before. 
     
    So who knows?  Its decision time, one which I intend to defer until late next year for personal reasons. 
     
    Other than that, and a hefty brush with Post Traumatic Stress last year things are pretty good.  I keep myself busy - Gym, the dog, copious hospital visits, struggling with a new novel (writers block) and building a remote control scale model of the Titanic (much to everyone's amusement) I'm certainly not bored. 
     
    Anyway, as ever a longer update than intended - thanks for thinking of me.  I'll try and pop in more often.  Take care people, oh and watch out for low flying moose heads!!

    My first question is when are you planning to finish the longest running SUC in history? I seem to remember there was a promise of spangly pants?

    Lol - yes its still a work in progress.  I was planning to compete this year, however things have been rather up and down, to say the least.  Body is constantly on edge and I tend to pick up every virus going, permanently drained and tired.  It is very frustrating, however I can do the minuscule spangly pants anytime.
