Yesterday on my birthday, I was doing a dub misty 9 on my tramp, underrotated, and snapped my ankle on landing. I displaced a fragment of my tibia and it cut the cartilage on my joint, and may have damaged my growth plate, so later today I am getting surgery on my ankle to repair the cartilage, as well as getting screws in to fix my tibia. My recovery time is 6 months and for the second year in a row I will not be able to spend my summer actively, as I broke my wrist and arm last year. So I need things to do over the summer, what ideas do you have NSG? And yes the first thing I said when I landed was my ankle is broken. Excuse my poor grammar or spelling as I am on a morphine drip and in pain.
This is the firt spring in a long time i havent hurt myself badly so I know how you feel. Get yourself a wheelchair and get really good at balancing and doing tricks with it. It passes a lot of time and you can do some pretty impressive things
Misty 5 into backflip. And thanks everybody, I'll be rehabbing hard once I can and many Tanner Hall jokes where made before I left. My bro got me some new N64 games though so I am stoked on that. Look forward to some unintelligible posts after my surgery.
Read books, yeha it sounds corny but reading is sooo much better when youre not forced to. Reading a book you actually want to read is very enjoyable. Try Into Thin Air, its about an Everest expedition gone wrong and you will learn a lot. Also learn how to crochet, make some bomb hats and some money
I'm out of surgery now and my bro got me some frank miller batman comics as well as 300 so im set for a while. The doctors did a good job setting my bone so I did not need screws so that is a good sign.
well i can somewhat relate to you as I just recovered from breaking the growth plate in my tibia this past ski season. I basically got really good at cod and watched a bunch of tv online. Shows like Dexter, Game of Thrones, Spartacus, and Breaking Bad were some of my favorites. Other than that just go hard at rehab and you'll be back in no time. And hopefully you didn't mess up your growth plate cause that can cause some serious issues if it shuts down and you still have growth left.
I have a similar situation, I broke my tibia in half the end of February break (I'm still a shitty skier so it was pretty much from landing backseat too many times). The last time I saw the doctor I was told the bone was healed to the point that there was no chance of a re-break. I told him that I had a new tramp on the way that I got for my birthday and wondered if it was ok to use it when it arrived. He said it was completely fine and as long as it didn't hurt everything was ok. A month later I finally got it and it felt fine to run, jump, and basically anything else I could think of, so I went ahead and put the tramp together. The first day the muscles were a little sore but nothing compared to landing on my head on dub flat and dub lincoln attempts (probably not my best idea for first tricks since I had yet to land either one). The next day was Friday so my friends were going to come over to try it out. First hour or so was all good and muscles were only slightly sore. Went inside and got a drink and got back on the tramp, after about 5 minutes my neighbor came over and wanted to try it. My friend said we should teach her to do a cork 7. Example 1 perfectly fine, felt great, no problem. Example 2 my friend was going to double bounce me for a cork 9 mute, needless to say my leg that was supposed to be perfectly fine gets fucked. Here's the vid of the two.
and here is the x-ray from today about 2 and a half weeks later I did that to the bone, tore scar tissue, and messed up some muscles. Like you I'm out for the summer and probably soccer season also. I have just been playing video games basically. When I finally got my cast and stuff off the first time my cousin started playing WoW and begged me to play also, I told him now that I was better I didn't have time and didn't really want to but if I got hurt again I would. So of course now that I did I started playing WoW. Probably not the best option but it certainly does a good job of killing time. For summer I am just going to swim a lot I think because there isn't much impact. Good luck with your injury, hopefully it isn't as bad as it seems.
Hey dude I'm in the same boat as you. I broke my tibia along the growth plate about a month ago, had surgery, got a screw, etc. For exercise, just crutch around and you'll get great arm strength. For social interaction, just chill with people and maybe do some filming (Tramp, skating, etc.)
And lastly and most importantly, TAKE UP PHOTOGRAPHY. It's the most rewarding, fun, mellow activity to spend your time doing. Your crutches can act as a stabilizer, and it doesn't put your leg at risk of getting re-injured.
Good luck in your recovery man!
P.S. Hang with the bitches. Bitches love cripples.
Sonds good, I'll try to become a better photographer and filmer. Those are two things I lack ability in so this is a good opportunity to get better. Also I get to use a wheelchair at school so I'm pretty stoked for that.
I know exactly how you feel. I shattered my elbow last fall and missed a solid amount of skiing, and now I rebroke my elbow a couple weeks ago and my entire summer is gone. Here is a pic of all the hardware I have in my elbow at the moment:
A lot of people will tell you to do things like play video games and other mindless activities (not a bad thing just there are other better things you could do with your time off). I would advise you to get smart! Read books, study things like math, watch Kahn's Academy videos, study computer languages and programming, etc. That's what I'm planning on doing this summer, and I really think it will be beneficial to me later on. Just started my quest to read all the Great Books. Not sure how far I'm gonna get...
