i've broken my tibia and fibia once. total recovery is 2-3 months depending on how the break is.
i also snapped my femur like a twig back in feb of 02..... big titanium rod + a large metal pin to hold it in. i had the rod removed last august, and i'm almost fully recovered from that surgery. the femur break is a minimal recovery time cause of the re-enforcement from the rod. but i also tore my ACL, so i was off my feet for 3 months. when i broke my femur, i didn't go into shock, i just untangled my leg from my other leg (weirdest feeling EVER, pulled that shit straight from a 90 degree angle) and waited for ski patrol. had surgery, stayed in the hospital for a week fucked up on morphine.....
bones are overrated.
That's Mr. Bangor to you!
