B.QuincySo yesterday while just boming down a run at my home mountain I had a little too much speed coming over a roller went for a little safety grab when I caught my tips and landed on mychest sliding for about 40-50 feet. Ski patrol took me down and I went in the ambulance to a local small ER and they thought I was good to go with a broken thumb and badly bruised ribs but upon feeling nauseous they took me in for a cat scan to find I had sliced open my liver and a number of other things internally. I was airlifted to a tramua unit and got there to have them do the whole thing but avoided surgery and now am recovering well in the hospital. Obviously I won't be able to ski this season but my question is how do I go about getting back on snow next season especially after a serious injury like this?
olicMan, serious vibes for the recovery!
got over excited when I got back on skis. Within 2 weeks back on skis blew both meniscus and re-ruptured my ACL because I tried to ski as if I was fully healthy.
Pegel18im 3 weeks post-op on ACL graft, both menisci tear, and MCL sprain, and this terrifies me for when i get back on skis!
