OregonDeadvibes op. you gonna need surgery?
BucketheadYeah I had surgery about 7 hours ago.
Evantheshredsterhow was taking off the boot? always wondered about tanners ankles too....
DominatorJacquesCut the boot off with a saw. Sorry boot!
DominatorJacquesEither that, or cut off the foot. Take your choice!
Truly, I am curious how it was done.
Boot cut off, or taken off? @Buckethead
WoFlowzThat zone looks fucking sick don’t let Sammy C know where it is tho there won’t be any pillows left after he smashes them all. Heel up soon tho. That prolly hurts like a bitch
r00kieOof. How'd your buddies do getting you out of there? Getting hurt in the backcountry keeps me up at night.
BucketheadThe only thing I could think about while I was laying there for 2 hours was how they were going to get the boot off. When I got to the hospital they said they can't cut it. So they put me to sleep and manually removed it. When I woke and the boot was off I was stoked.
DominatorJacquesMystery solved. Best to you, and heal up well. The bone should be stronger than before.
Did you get a rod, or just plates?
I still have 10 screws and a plate at my tibial plateau! Like 6 of those screws are 3 + inches long!
BucketheadThe surgeon just said screws, I'm getting another x Ray tomorrow so hopefully I get to check it out. Norwegian hospital man I was luckily things got taken care of quickly.
Also thanks everyone for the well wishes!
BucketheadI was about 200m from the road so the car was close by. I was 2nd to drop so my mate behind me came to me first and gave me his jacket and made me a back rest. My other mate went to the car and grabbed extra puffer jacket and a sleeping bag. The chopper couldn't land or drop off the paramedic because of the terrain and wind so he had to hike up with the toboggan. My mates were really cold too so they ended up doing laps up and down while we waited. They are legends for sure. I'm glad they were there. I had some collie budz playing. I snapped both bones clean through.
Young_pattyBeen there op, your foot dangling when it shouldn’t always sucks. Just have a cigarette or something and remember to ask Your surgeon for perc’s
mikemacVibes brotha! I'm Headed in for ACL reconstruction on Friday, 3rd time under the knife for a ski injury.... comin back stronger than ever fam !
DominatorJacquesThat's a long plate! IDK, maybe not quite finished because it looks out of alignment!
buck_nastybummer bro! best wishes on a speedy recovery. I had the same break in 2010. Not fun but I did make a full recovery. Would recommend getting the rod removed whenever possible if you wanna keep sending.
BucketheadDamn okay I hadn't actually taked about that with the dr. I'm in a hotel now. What's the recovery like after the removal? Just incision pain or are the muscles farked?
