I can one-up that, sadly.

Crutches are where it's at.

How long were you in the hospital?

Three days, from Monday morning until Wednesday afternoon. Then at home the swelling and mobility got worse through the weekend, and it was very dark. Weeks from there got better.

Luckily, remember that super shower that was why we bought this house that I turned out to hate? It had a bench and shower, and a hand wand, and enough space for AG to easily be in as well. Very lucky.

Crutches... too clumsy for how I was. It was bad.

Good to see you HB, happy you are recovering.

They're always in style here

Do you have cookies turned off? That sounds like cookies are turned off.

My wife has been begging me to find some KN95 masks for her old lady friends who are trapped in their houses. I came home just now with 14 N95s and she rejected them out of hand because there are words on the front.
Meanwhile I trim my full beard to look like a city guy's beard(Yuck!). AND shave it into a goattee(which I absolutely abhor)so my mask will seal.
Rant off, though I continue to steam.

They were going to turn me loose on Tuesday after checking in (?) Sunday night. Unfortunately, as I was on the walker Tuesday morning, heading to head, I fainted. That kept me in an extra day. I was already off the Dilaudid IV, which was key.

I'm not sure you adductor will ever be 100%. It's weird, as even now, I struggle to tie my left shoe whilst sitting down. I blame it on age, as it gets better every year. The walking thing will just happen. One day, I realized I wasn't walking without a limp. Same with running. It'll come back, even though it's not at all important to me, but your case is certainly much different.

The shower seat we got was magic. Even now, I wish I were still using it.

We are not allowed to wear N95/KN95s at work unless they have been issued and fit to our faces by infection control staff and that only happens on an as-needed basis. I guess the rationale is that people will start wearing ill-fitting ones in critical situations like with multi-drug-resistant TB patients or something. We have been told that the ASTM level 3 masks they issue us at the door every day are adequate for casual interactions in the clinical setting. We have KN95s at home and wear them to the supermarket etc.

I'm on the Brave browser. They tell me cookies are effectively blocked. Or rather that the digital me never appears the same, visit to visit. I just logged in again, btw. On another site I used to frequent, I had to verify my device each and every time I logged in. That right there is the reason I no longer go there.

I was in seven days for my re-attached finger.

Went cat food shopping today. Pembroke Welsh Corgi named Oreo. 10 weeks old. What a sweetheart he is. Heíll grow into that big head.

Walking still has a limp, though minor, unless I get tired or don't pay attention. Most life tasks are doable; no trouble or pain showering or getting in bed or the like, but anything like stepping in a patch of slick mud can still cause a sudden movement and sharp pain. Still can't run though, which is soul-crushing. A local 18k race was moved to COTA due to Covid, so AG did the three-lap version and I did the single, walking. Was not DFL. Nice to throw on a timing chip for the first time in over two years, pathetic as it felt to record a 15:30 pace. Oh and it was in the 20s with a roaring wind.

That there is exactly what scares me about riding a bike these days (other than a motor vehicle attack) and it happening to a youngster like you makes it scarier. Hope the issues all resolve with time.

Same thing happened to another youngish guy I know, but he was an idiot and British and rode himself down to a state of emaciation, in which his bones were probably embrittled.

Iím amazed that you continue to suffer so many uniquely intractable system problems. All I can tell you is to revisit the Suggestions forum to see if youíve tried all the suggestions as already provided. There has GOT to be something in there youíre overlooking. Personally, BillyD has no new ideas, system troubleshooting is not my strong suit, Iím more of a CC guy: Congeniality Coordinator. :)

At my age, I've decided to replace a bit of my cycling with some weighlifting in order to maintain bone density. My understanding is that osteoporosis is (at least somewhat) hereditary, and my 83-year old mother has fractured a few vertebrae just by livin'.

Yeah, I am a big believer in shock loading too, as in running down stairs. I don't think I have much of a genetic predisposition, but I weigh 140 lbs and tend sit around on my ass when I'm not on the bike, so I'm a set up. Gotta start the squats again, like coach [MENTION=140600]LAJ[/MENTION] keeps telling me too.

my mom has it bad too. Thankfully she hasnít fractured anything yet but I know her bone density is an issue.

I started drinking milk again about a year ago hoping that does something.

And too stiff to ride, in my experience.
