bike crash
« on: June 29, 2015, 12:42:21 PM »
Kid jumps in front of bike. I go over the handlebars. Ambulance ride and weekend spent in MGH, NOT PRICELESS! Fractured Clavacle and I think that is the least of my problems. I will see my ortho guy later today but suspect major shoulder damage from the landing.

I did hit the little bastard and he didn't even get a scratch John!  MRI in a few weeks when the pain is less to look at the RC.

When i asked one of my Docs about my RC,,,she said "of course your shoulder is a mess"  i didn't even get out of my 20's with history and she said she had heard enough ! 

Good luck

Sorry to hear this Dave. A younger guy with quicker reflexes would have missed the kid.  ;) ;) It sucks getting old. Be well.

Yuck! At least you hit him!
  I got my helmet clipped with a week wacker last week when a landscape trailer cut it too close to me. I was heading down when I managed to bunny-hop over the curb and let out a stream of insults....he didn't even look back. Made the last 10 miles of that ride unpleasant. I called in the trailer plate number to the local cops though.
  Getting the clavical pinned is not too bad but if there is more I feel for you. I've had more than my fair share of shoulder issues. I am just now really feeling better for a bursidis/tendonistis that cropped up in Febuary.

See what happens when you wear a helmet and ride those silly bicycles, Dave.   :P When I go over the handlebars, I just flip and land on my pack like a turtle. Heal up well.

Thats kind of what I did Mark and i just opened my pack this morning to find $1000 worth of smashed  Cannon Camera. :'(

Thanks for all the encouragement people, it looks like I am going to be pretty sore and out of commission for a while.

I hope Strandman is doing ok this afternoon. He sure is one stubborn bastard!

Get well quick Dave.

Seems like quite a few climbers here have various health issues.

I got wrecked a few years back in the snowboard park. I came over the jump and there was a kid sitting in the landing. I had to throw my body around and land on my back/hip to avoid landing on his head. I was out for almost the rest of the season. Heal up quick!!!
