    Ice! Noooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!


    Bummed to hear that. Pelvic fractures are never enjoyable.

    Heal up brotha, hoping for a speedy recovery and good drugs in the meantime. #postcountgonnasoar

    I’m toe touch weight too, but only for another 3 1/2 weeks so looks like the advantage goes to me to be on the slopes first.

    How in the hell did you travel with that kind of injury. Charter a flight? Business class?

    Keep on fighting!

    jesus, that's brutal. by chance, did you have your skis tuned at rei?

    Hip is just lay terminology for the region that includes part of the pelvis and the joint created by the femoral head and acetabulum. I missed the bit about shattering the acetabulum. Any mention of replacement at this point?

    Doc yesterday is one of the top guys in DC, team ortho for the Wizards etc.. He's a friend of mine I went to college and played Rugby with and have known for 30+ years and I trust him completely, he says it's inevitable in both hips. He treated it like good news.

    My other hip has bothered me for years (of course the one I fucked up is the one that hasn't bothered me at all), and it has definitely limited my mobility (well, my pain-free mobility, I can do anything but some of it fucking hurts), and he says I'm a perfect candidate, right age, health, strength, interests (and being able to pay for it is a factor I'm sure). Says it will change my life. So I guess that's coming up sooner than later.

    Went first-class, loaded up on Hydrocodone, Tylenol and Xanax and just did it.

    Injury was a week ago, the toe-touch is the the 6-week mark, so 5 more weeks. I'm not that far behind you, watch out!

    People i've talked to who have done it said their only regret was not doing it sooner...
    Something about the wrinkle in your forehead tells me there's a fit about to get thrown
    And I never hear a single word you say when you tell me not to have my fun
    It's the same old shit that I ain't gonna take off anyone.
    and I never had a shortage of people tryin' to warn me about the dangers I pose to myself.

    Same thing I've been told. The people who've done it are very active, mostly skiers and swear it was the best thing they've done for their skiing as adults.

    Shit, no reason to let that broken, worn out hip heal. Just replace it with a new one now.

    I've only read and heard the same sentiment Tye and Gold mention; people being happy with the result. I'd guess that's true with most surgeries that resolve pain or mobility issues. Recovery and rehab are supposed to be pretty quick and the hip is a simple joint so that helps. A few guys in Gimp Central have had good experiences. Replacement is almost a sure thing for me but hopefully years down the road.

    Open book fracture - way bad. You don't want that. I mean, you don't want any fracture, but those are bad juju.

    Shit!! Sweating it already. I better get back to PT ASAP.

    Coincidentally the nurses at the surgery center were all talking about knee replacements and how great they are it anymore but mentioned that hip replacements and how they have that down even more pat.

    Nice. Git sum. I forgot about that medal, hang onto it for me please. I'm not gonna be out for a little while, I gotta do some serious healing before I get back on a plane for 4+ hours, but I'll be there this winter for sure. Or spring, maybe. We'll see.

    50% weight with crutches on my meniscus repaired knee today, down to 1 crutch next week if it can take 75%

    How’s your progress?
