Empier VS Lloyd
So i just got back from the hospital.Wed night hit up empier with stanyo and powder 4 breakfast. last air on the trail was a good 5 footer. i landed fine, but lost it into the trees where my arm was dislocated. We tried to put my arm back in, but no luck. i had to walk for quite a while b4 i could get to a place where a car could pick me up. It took us probably an hour to get to the clinic in park city, where they tried for 40 minutes to put my arm back in with no luck. it felt like they were cutting it off instead of putting it back in. i have never experianced so much pain before. they told me i would have to go to the uofu to have it worked on. longest ride of my life. Carston thanks for driving. At the U they took x rays and then put me out to pull on it again. By the way the PC clinic sucks! they pulled for 40 minutes with me feeling every thing. I have never screamed to God for help like that b4 and hope nobody ever has to go through that kind of pain. anyway, back at the U the doctors were unable to move my arm. this night was so intence!!! They had the orto surgion look at the xrays only to find that my bone was broken were it gose into the socket. so they lined up the surgery and yesterday afternoon i went under the knife. they had to put a plate on the bone to keep it together and then back into my socket. i can't move my hand, fingers, or arm at all at this point and typing with one hand sucks! I will be out for the rest of the summer. Man i am depressed. So yea Empier kicked my butt!!!

Damn Lloyd, really sorry to hear that. I know how bad it sucks to lose a season, but things will be back to normal before you know it.
Which drop is this? The flat wooden ramp right before the tight, steep section?Remind me. We'll send him a red cap and a Speedo.

What!!!??? No way....We didn't even get to ride the Crest together, I'm so bummed for you. Heal up as quick as you can, cause really, ski season isn't THAT far away.
Oh, and call me sometime soon.you sketchy character, you

Damn dude, heal up. That does not sound like fun."People blame me because these water mains break, but I ask you, if the

Duuude! So sorry to hear that Steve. WTF? This sport is ridiculous sometimes. I've come damn close to wrecking off that drop before as well. Think of it this way: better to crash in the trees than to somehow sneak through the trees and go off the big cliff down there
Heal up fast my friend.I'm so hardcore, I'm gnarcore.

Damn, that seriously sucks. Hope you heal fast man. Time to focus on editing pics for a while I guess. Can you shoot with your good hand?
I wonder if the fracture was why it was so hard to get back in. Sounds like it wasn't an obvious fracture either. I've seen a lot of shoulder dislocations and usually the clinics can get them back in without the use of anything more than some pain meds at most. While it is insane pain, it isn't usually that long lasting if they can get it in quick so you don't have to make the longer trip to the hospital. Bummer you had to go through all that. Sounds really shitty. Joint injuries suck.

man that is a shitty scary story, sorry dude. sounds like a pretty bad injury.
Hope you heal well.

Otter, you failed to mention that up until your crash you were absolutely KILLING IT. Definitely some good riding before the incident. That night was intense though. Coming out of the PC clinic you looked like someone exiting a medeival torture chamber. I can't imagine how painfull that must have been, especially considering that there were three or four people pulling on a broken arm. It sucks that you had to go through all of that. Stay positive and heal up quick!

I have dislocated my shoulder twice. The maybe 10 minutes the shoulder was out of the socket both times was the most painful minutes of my life. My shoulder popped back in easily, I can't imagine having it out of socket for the amount of time you are describing. I really feel for you. I hope it heals up quick and make sure you rehab it like crazy because doing that a second time sucks. I'm sure you will see a physical therapist, but after you heal up if you want to pm me I have some excercises that really help strengthen and tighten the whole shoulder up.Thanks Shane

This is one more reason I stay out of the Gimp Central forum . . . . too much of this kind of pain and suffering. (Yes, I know this is the Sprocket Rockets forum.)
Sorry to hear your ride ended badly. Really sorry to hear your injuries required surgery.
P.S. em·pireDon’t race. Leave that to the scorchers.

Good lord! Heal up quick, we've got some riding to get in next summer, eh?This touchy-feely Kumbaya shit has got to go.

Fuck, Otter. I feel for you. When I was seven, I reached over someone's shoulder an they yanked my arm hard enough to lift me off the ground. Sadly, it was also hard enough to separate my shoulder and fracture my radius or ulna (can't remember which). To this day, that the worst pain I've ever felt. I don't even remember the ride to the hospital because of the pain. I do however remember when the x-ray tech forcefully rotated my arm to get an x-ray. That just turned the pain up from 10 to 11. The way they did it seemed so unnecessary too.
Anyway, good luck with the healing and hit the pt hard. I had shoulder problems for years after that and it wasn't until I went to pt after re-injuring it last year that the shoulder got much better."I knew in an instant that the three dollars I had spent on wine would not go to waste."

BTW otter, did the P.C. clinic xray you before they yanked on your shoulder for 40 minutes? Sounds like not. That sounds bad. Really bad.I'm so hardcore, I'm gnarcore.
06-30-2007, 09:42 PM #15
yea the pc clinic did,and that pisses me off because if they had got it in i would be in bad shape for the future.

damn, heal up quickly steve!

so sorry to hear this! That sounds like a horrible injury - sorry you had to go through that. when I dislocated my shoulder mountain biking in 2003 and it was out for an hour, it was gnarly - wouldn't wish that pain on anyone!
Not sure if this is relevant, but I actually had no movement in a couple of my fingers the next day, and it turned out to be related to a damaged axillary nerve, which healed up (though took a long time - they estimate it heals at about an inch a month or something crazy slow like that).“Within this furnace of fear, my passion for life burns fiercely.

that is good to know. i have no feeling in two of my fingers and can't move my hand at all. I was told that the feeling might not come back for a long time.

I can't imagine pulling on a broken and dislocated shoulder. I've done it a couple times with one time being unable to reduce it for 2hrs.
When it finally went in muscles in an entire sections of my arm didn't work.. it just hung next to me and I was really really scared. It took several months before everything was normal again as watersnowdirt mentioned. I thought electro stim helped alot to reteach muscles to fire. Don't rush back in to doing anything. It is much easier to dislocate a second time, but you will be able to do what you love again. Best of luck

<<+healing vibes+>> sending your way dude! at least you can be happy/or not quite as pissed off/thankful it happened in the summer instead of the winter...?
<<<+more heal up fast as possible vibes!+>>>

FWIW, I finally saw a Physiatrist - I think that's how you spell it - it's nerve specialist. He tested a bunch of my nerves in my arms, etc to test their function, which is how I confirmed that the axillary nerve was f'ed up. This at the same time I'd discovered I'd torn my rotator cuff during the dislocation. Shoulders are fun!
Might be worth looking into to see how the nerves were impacted by your shoulder being out for so long.“Within this furnace of fear, my passion for life burns fiercely. I have consumed all evil. I have overcome my doubt. I am the fire.”

I dislocated my shoulder 4 years ago. I had it reduced in the ED.
I had deltoid numbness for a couple of months or so. Everything is fine now. Just have to be careful in the future when you fall skiing or whatever. Have to think quick and keep your arms in.
Best of luck on your rehab.
Maybe we could get out for some aerial photos later. You can flick the switch with your good arm, I'll fly.
