    Speedboat: 1 Me: nil.

    I will be out of action for a while, I went out in a friends speedboat as a passenger, and a few freak waves later, I ended up with a broken back, two broken kneecaps, and a smashed clutch side leg.
    Bother.
    On a more positive note I got a ride on a helicopter because of it!
    Cool.
    Take care all.

    That's bad news, I shattered my ankle last year and that was bad enough... It's depressing how quickly you get out of shape when you're laid up and your feet can be a particular issue if you are off them for a while, so get with a hospital physio a soon as you can and be prepared for some hard work to come out with a good result. Good luck with it !

    Cheers Gents,
    left fumur broken in two places Steve, a mate once had a single crack in his, so what can you do.
    At home now and having a little difficulty with the wheelchair. Because it is such a long wheelbase (to cope with two leg rests) it is a bugger to pull wheelies.

    Ouch! that must have hurt. Surprised you're actually sitting up, I spent ages flat out when I broke my back. Take it easy Ed and enjoy what you can of the immobility Matthew Wright is much better than Jeremy Kyle LoL

    Hi Ed,
    So sorry to hear its your femur; I broke the knee joint off my left one and shattered my right one in 6 places; but thanks to great AO plating and a clever surgeon its as good as new; bear with it, and as soon as you can possibly start excercising, concentrate on your quads as theyre the key to being able to walk (knee control)
    Keep smiling young man, it sounds like you have the right attitude!!
    Best regards for a speedy recovery
    Steve
