Doctors advice. heed it
« on: August 30, 2015, 11:05:14 PM »
Guys/gals if your doc tells you to do something, DO IT.  im winning the DOTY ( dumba** of the year) award for 2015 broke  both ankles the right one 2x lol. was under strict orders for no weight bearing on either leg. i now have an appointment with an oncologist and my surgeon on the 4th. of september. id say ill be fine. just that cancer runs in the family. scaring the begeez out of me. ( protein levels were/are out of whack.) had it not been for complications this past week id probably not have known my diabetes threw me a number.  so inclosing do what doc says Eh? even if you dont like it. DO IT.  :)

Good advice. Got a clear scan yesterday. Thought my riding days were over before they'd started again. All the best mate.

up to 137 lbs now. heading in the right direction. have an 830am appt with surgeon to evaluate right foot. if it is not fusing in the right direction i may lose it. am petrified over this. i do not want to be a monopod if i can avoid it. i have ridden my last gs using one foot ( had ankle sprain a few years back. when i rode thru dragon. when i would come to a stop would use left foot to prop self up.) but damn i dont want to be perm this way. this is why i am that scared. am def. NO WEIGHT ON IT AT ALL. ive not heeded these instrux. have done my best, but still have to bear weight on it at times. i.e. bathroom etc. looking for work i can do in a wheelchair. i need yalls prayers on this. if i become a monopod so be it. i can handle that. yours truly,
Aaron

Yep, death is in the chase.
I had a (surprise) heart op (MVR) back in March, WOW!!! Didn't expect that.
Later, got diagnosed with emphysema, and then, last week, lung cancer. Aw this is gonna be a fun ride!
All this came after I gave up smoking! (U.S. readers, this is that thing called IRONY!)

Nahh, got to laugh, don't lose the sense of humour, we're here for a good time not a long time.  Do right by other people, that's all.
After the heart op I needed to ascertain whether I could do 2 things: Root, and Ride in that order. Yep, done that, all good (But I need to keep practising to get it right).
That will also be my measure of success after the lung operation. I'll see. (May let you know, may not).

Brrm brrrm, suzi in the shed waiting...

I'm lucky, my cancer is small and doesn't seem to have spread, so with a bit of luck my surgeon will be able to slice the little alien out before it does too much damage.
Beam me up Scottie....

this blows. got casted bright orange. why not Eh? am in UT area lol. but in this for 3 weeks.  no load bearing whatsoever.  after this it is removed proved no more damage., then i go into another moonboot. a nike air model lol. not really but it has air bladders i can inflate. so im lookin at 6 weeks of no income minimum, then i begin physical therapy to get use of ankle back. then i can put weight on it as tolerated. then provided no further damage, i can be cleared to seek work. all the while debt piles up.lol.. other than that, tis beena decent day

never realise how much you value your ankles being able to pivot in angle until theyre locked at 90 deg. either in a splint or in a cast.. in my case both. moonboot on left and cast on right  lol. takes me 5 minutes to walk the length of my home to pee lol. this blows. or better yet you never realise how much you value those power doors in a doctors office
