    Default Bounce, bounce, snap!

    Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers. I was jumping on the trampoline with a friend and the kiddos last Saturday night. We were bouncing each other higher and I came down wrong. My leg kind of hyperextended backwards and snap. As first we thought ACL or something but it turns out to be a tibial plateau fracture. Surgery is supposed to be this coming Thursday. Here is a collage of pics from the CT.

    Tough luck, Okie. At least it was "only" the bone - ACL's & other ligaments/tendons don't heal nearly as well (especially since some of us aren't spring chickens anymore). Best wishes for the upcoming procedure & a speedy recovery.

    Not too familiar with procedures like this but, is that a permanent "fix" or just to allow the bone to heal? If not, you are going to become good friends with the TSA if you ever travel by air. Hope you have an uneventful procedure and a smooth and healthy recovery.

    They are permanent. Yes metal detectors have the possibility of picking them up.

    Surgery went well...doctor was very pleased. It took one plate and 10 screws. Pain is worse than pr-surgery but they are slowly getting it under control.

    Glad it went well. Don't be bashful - ask the docs for the "good stuff" if it gets too rough. When I got busted up bad, I learned the difference between painkillers and narcotics - painkillers make the pain tolerable, narcs make it where you don't care...

    Good luck with the healing & do your PT religeously when the time comes.
