Yikes it hurts.Up early again today with severe cramp which is also a problem due to a loss of circulation.
I am lucky as ,at least i kept that lower leg and been hobbling around for a long time since.This original injury damaged my knee which was replaced 26 years after the accident.
There was a lot of envy at my compensation award at the time but there was no real joy for me with all the continuing treatment.It just helped me by keeping my household costs very low.
The injury involved both ends of the Tibia exiting and leaving these two big holes and the Fibula also exited leaving two more holes.My foot was broken and left with virtually no movement.Lucky with old bikes i have the right hand change for gears.The new bikes have heel and toe changing but i just use my heel.
So,its been a tricky life since but a good one and still enjoying it all.
This time,i am having to buy an automatic car as i tend to miss the clutch pedal at times.
Skin grafts were the worst operation for pain.Knee replacement had severe pain for 3 months.
Just tried to load a picture but its broken again.Try again later.
