    HIT BY CAR AND OK!


    So I used to be a everyday user on here and a die hard member. However it has been a while since my last post but for good reason. I recently was in a motorcycle accident. Due to legal reasons I had to remove any social profiles I had. A car not paying attention came across the double yellow line hitting me head on at 60 a piece. I flew 75 feet and landed in the road. I was fully geared but still obtained injuries. I had broken fingers broken wrist shattered shoulder blade seperated shoulder and a severed artery in my arm. The doctors were amazed to hear that at the scene I had stood up on my own was talking joking around that my socks were ruined and evened texted my family. After the very expensive helicopter ride and the examinations and countless x-rays the doctors said had I not been in the physical condition I was in this would have been fatal. I had dropped to 155lbs from 182 but since then I am now up to 174 and very strong. I was doing legs in a sling and cast! People called me crazy for making lifting my life but if this isn't proof of what being in shape can do Idk what is!

    please do... about 2 years ago i hit some gravel(march) and crashed my supermoto into some trees going 70mph......

    i broke both of my legs and sat in a wheelchair and wilted from 205lbs to 155lbs ... of course i attribute most of the weightloss to the oxycontin

    EDIT: props for being in the gym bro

    one of my legs healed faster than the other, so as soon as i could i was in the gym on crutches doing upperbody lol

    All I can say is "wow" it seems almost unrealistic or movie like. Glad to hear your back, good luck with your endeavours!

    I'm always glad to hear about fellow riders coming out ok from being hit by sh!tty drivers. I ride a Ducati 900ss and happy to say I've never been down. I can't wait to see some pics. I also ride bicycles. My commutes average 200+ miles a week. Luckily this is my only accident.

    Big up on your recovery!
    My Dad had me racing minis at age 6 and of course I hit the street as soon as I got my license. I've been hit by cars on 3 separate occasions, but never as bad as that!
    Having a healthy body and good protective gear obviously saved your life! I moved to Chicago in 2002, and there is no helmet law here...I still get freaked out by all the people I see riding in shorts and t shirt.

    It looks like to me you're got a tough row to hoe. I've had some serious set backs myself (double quad tendon tear in 2001 and a coronary bypass this January) so I have a good idea of what you're going thru. Lost 35 lbs the first time and 20 the second. I was, and still, being pretty aggressive about my comeback, maybe too much this time. I don't even talk about it to any of my health care providers. It's a lot tougher recovering from these things that people let on. Often it takes months to recover from even a significant surgery let alone what you've been thru. Like you, my surgeon said i didn't have a massive heart attack or damage and was otherwise still high functioning because my heart itself is in such great shape. One of the biggest helps to me (aside from my obsession with the gym) is support from friends (I've gotten a lot of support from friends at my gym), family (esp my wife), and my faith (I friendly with a couple of clerics love to work out, too, so it's very easy to get a sympathetic ear). Just having someone to talk to, even if they can't help, helped tremendously. So pm me if you think it will help.

    Personally, other than the surgeons and basic rehab, mainstream medicine isn't much help. They'd have us do 20 mins cardio 3x week, and lifting 20lbs. My avatar and stats are current.

    I've got my good days and bad (my bench is back to 300lbs, only 50 more to go). My PCP doc. heard about it and I hear I'm in trouble, oh well. Like I said, this is my 2nd reset, first one at age 46, the second at 56, so don't let age, in and of itself scare you. It's not the age but the maintenance. In case anyone is wondering if AAS had anything to do with it, i've been clean for 5 months and am (and always did) have a strict diet, and cardio 3x week and it hasn't made a bit of difference. My surgeon says it just family history.

    I was hit by a 4wd in 2002 (as a pedestrian) and had multiple fractures to my skull, arms, collar bone, femur and feet along with internal damage, i also stopped rbeating and my heart stopped for 5 mins untill the ambulance arrived...and i live to tell the tale. Recovery is tough, it takes a long time-as you know, but you will get there.

    I'm a firefighter/paramedic and I'm sure you know it but 5 mins is amazing, good medics there to take care of you. OP and all the other guys on here telling their stories, congratulations and more power to you guys you are inspirations for anyone. While I've never had injuries like this I have heard of a lifter/bodybuilder that lives in town who survived a skydiving accident from bein in such good and huge shape. This and all the other stories just goes to show even more how important our health is.

    how long will he be in hospital for? is he struggling with the lung or femur most?

    From experience i would take legal action if she was at fault. The doctors bills tend to be expensive.

    I broke mine a little higher, and unfortuntly the femur takes a long time to heal. I had nancy nail surgery to help mine heal where they drill right through the core of your femur and run steel rods the leangth of the femur. It was the worst pain imagionable, worse than the break itself. However, it did help the healing process.

    I wish him the best of luck, and do what the physio says.

    My brother wanted to borrow my bike seems how I'm not riding it. Now I'm not so sure I want to lend it to him. I would feel like $hit if anything like this happened to him. Good luck to you both with your health and now legal issues. The legal issues can sometimes be more bothersome than the injuries.

    Amazing story. I had a similar accident in 2005. Lady pulled out in front of me from my right and stopped in my lane. I hit her going about 60. I had been working out about 28 years at the time. Broken ribs, toe, scapula and tore a huge chunk out of my left leg, but I'm here to talk about it. The lady driving the SUV was a retired school teacher possibly under the influence of pain meds. She never even got out of her vehicle to see if I was alright and tried to blame the accident on me. Lucky, I had lots of witnesses

    I replaced my bike about 4 weeks later. I couldn't bend my left leg all the way when I rode it home.

    Wow! I'm very surprised you survived this! I hit a concrete barrier going 60 mph on the high way and the car I was in got less damage then the one you hit. I hit it at an angle so the impact was not as bad but I still managed to break my back, shatter my wrist, sprain my neck, my knee and my hip. Here is the car I was in. I'll put up a picture of the car when my post count gets up to 50.

    Horrific, glad to hear you are both okay.

    Dragonrider, damn thats a devil woman, some people are just not right, what was the courts verdict, she'd have to pay for hospital bills and a new bike, but other than that? I study law here in Denmark and here her mandatory vehicle insurance would have covered everything, she'd lose her license for a year or two and get a suspended sentence for something like 6 months, depending on the severity of her action.
