Hey people, just thought i'd let you know. Was out riding on the 12th May, around 10pm, been riding since like 9am, was tired, achy, not concentrating. Went for tap a green electrical box, didnt make it, was talking as i sepped backwards and BAM:

So, yes, i rolled my ankle stepping off a curb. So went up the hospital following morning, Me personally thought it was just a sprain. Anyways after 4 hours in the waiting room, finally get x-rays etc done, for them to tell me its "Soft tissue damage", just ice it and keep it rested for 5-7 days and you'll be fine. Got a call off Si the physio that night, we had a long chat on the phone and told me to send him some pics of the ankle, he straight away told me i had ligament damage, so he come up and had a good look at it etc and put me in a back slab because the swealing was too bad for a full cast. So he come back up today, took the back slab off and put me a full cast on. And here i am now and will be for 6 weeks :(. Shows to show how good the NHS are....

Btw, im not actually happy about doing my foot in, Si was making me laugh Lmao

ouch... unlucky :(

The thing with casts is that your in them for however long the doctor says, i had ligament and tendon damage in my knee but no cast and was back on my bike within 1 month instead of 3 :o

(sorry that really didnt help :P)

Unless your like my mate who cut his cast of in the car on the way back from hospital :P

Personally i say drill some holes to save weight and get back on the bike.

In seriousness it looks nasty, gonna be a nasty six weeks for you though.

Also i swear you look different in every picture i ever see of you.

Bad luck dude! Hope the six weeks is up really quickly! Out of interest, did Si charge you anything? Cos he seems to offer all this advice, traveling all over the country to see peoples injuries and doesn't charge a penny, which must leave him seriously out of pocket.

Ermm, Just petrol fee's and any stuff he uses needs covering (Bandage, cast, etc)

Ah ok fair enough. Only reason I edited my first post was cos Ive never known Si to charge anything lol! Get well soon dude!

To be fair, ligaments are soft tissue so what you did was just soft tissue damage - I.e. no broken bones. But yeah, the NHS seems pretty terrible for sports injuries/ligament things. Looks like Si sorted you out though :)

The guy who dealt with my ankle said "2 weeks and it'll be fine." Ho ho ho...

I'm almost pretty certain that when I went into hospital 'cos of a pretty big fall to hand on the edge of a metal plate, causing this:

That I'd done more than "Just knocked it." They said that they looked at the X-rays and didn't think anything was broken, but they didn't sound 100% sure, and the mobility in my thumb on that hand's a bit limited compared to my other hand.

Si - I'm supposed to be seeing a physio I know when uni's done, if he thinks I've done the same thing you do, I'll go with you for treatment? Just wanted to get a second opinion with someone who I know who's pretty close first.

alright mark, yeah thats fine

couple of things though

- that thumb looked like it was more likely fractured than a "soft tissue injury" lol. if its still playing up let me know

- if you are seeing anyone about your ankle make sure they are sports specific or specialise in lower limb disorders. also need to know about prolotheraputic procedures etc. get them to do an anterior drawer test and talar tilt test on the ankle as well and let me know what their findings are as these will confirm what exectly is up with the ankle and what needs to be done next to resolve it

laters
