  1. Thats a bad SH*T Matt-hope you get well soon man. Thats one of the reasons I dnt even really go out much these days, its like the jasckass to normal people ratio went to 90-10. I notice alot of the younger guys from my bjj classes etc. have no reall interest in the whole sport/team aspect of it, rather like this clown, to be able to go out and pick fights with people is what they are concerned about-


  2. In for the speedy recovery Matt, the swelling looks like it's gone down a good amount in the right eye and the left eye looks like it's on the fast track to recovery. We're here with ya!

  8. That just makes me sick it, it really pisses me off what guys think they can get away with. I've been in the sport of MMA for 5 years now and you see it with alot of these young guys who come in and just want to learn to fight to cause drama. I'm sorry to see this happen to such a good person get well Matt and best wishes.

  9. Best wishes Matt, hope you get better soon and have a speedy recovery.

  10. This is FRIKKIN ridiculous! Arghhh! Makes my blood boil when I hear about crap like this! Really hope he gets done for this REAL bad.

    Wish you a speedy recovery brutha, get well soon.

    What an ass clown, damn!

  11. Day 5...huge recovery to my right eye. 95% swelling gone and darkest discoloration is faded to a yellowish color.

    Trying to finish up my sleep DCP reformulation this week, but having some real problems with focus and concentration. Doc says the concussion should slowly fade over the next 3 weeks.

    Cuts, even though some of them are VERY deep, are fading into nothing.

  14. Matt, were there any facial/orbital fractures? I'm sure they scanned your head (r/o bleed) as well as CT facial bones.

    Right side of nose is splintered, but there are no orbital fractures.

    I fixed my nose the best I could while adrenaline was still my friend, but I think I still have about 1/4 inch of offset. I will have to decide whether or not to have it rebroken and set soon.

    I know I have developed a horrendous snore, so I think Christine will make the call..or else.

    I hope the nose situation pans out well here. I'm sure it will once the swelling subsides; then you'll be able to make an accurate assessment of structural damage.

    They checked your visual acuity, right? The concussion effects can last a few days, so hopefully that has lifted now. I'm just trying to assess what a good trauma center should have done here, haha.

    We waited for 7 extra hours for the opthamologist to show up...which he didn't. Left eye is still slightly blurry, despite swelling being greatly reduced. There is no detached retina or anything, but we are waiting it out to make sure acuity returns 100%.

    Getting opthamology to respond can be a pain in the ass. I would say plastics is just as bad. Sad, but true in the E.R. I'm glad to hear at least they were consulted here for an eval.

    If you have any questions of concerns Matt, let me know. I'd be glad to give what advice I can from my own experience over the years.

    Thanks, John.

    We wasted 6 hours back at the ER today because some intern freaked out when Christine told her I was still falling down and forgetting/repeating things. CT came out normal again and the doc said it's perfectly normal for serious concussions to manifest these effects for another 2-3 weeks.

    That and I swapped my Percs for Vikes. Painkillers are bad enough on me, but those percs are just too strong.

    Anytime, Matt.

    Oxycodone (Percocet) is a good drug, but many people don't like the side effects. It really is a pretty potent narcotic. I personally think Hydrocodone (Vicodin/Norco) is much better option from a narcotic analgesic standpoint without the side effects.

    It's very possible with a concussion to have side effects for some time; especially if any equilibrium aspects (in the inner ear) were affected during the head trauma. The CT scan wouldn't show stuff like that (you're looking for traumatic head bleeding there - i.e., subdural'epidural bleed); it's more of a clinical diagnosis that's made by physical exam rather than by diagnostic exam (CT). We live in an age where some doctors rely HEAVILY on the diagnostic tools to make their diagnosis, however that's now how they're trained. It's now become more of a "defensive medicine" aspect.

    Just a friendly word of advice from a nurse that's been in the game a while....interns don't know their head from their ass (no offense of course to those that are interns, but I've save enough from screwing up or freaking out over the years).....

    If you ever have a serious question that you want answered with expertise and experience, always request the attending physician.

    The important question...how soon can I resume heay lifting?

    My eye vessels are all ruptured and the headaches are close to unbearable, but I don't want to take more than a week off. It's as much ego recovery as physical, if you know what i mean.

    This is the thing...

    Head trauma like this can open gates that may not be apparent on the CT scan at this point. If you test the issue, often some things that aren't evident may begin to manifest. If you're symptomatic, i.e., headaches, blurred vision - I would not resume anything that would risk the chance of increasing ICP (Intra-cranial pressure.)

    At this point, I would say you're at least 4 weeks out from doing anything that you should consider "heavy." I'm also being on the safe side here, Matt. I know that you'll rebound great, but let the body heal fully before engaging in any significant heavy lifting.

    Any type of focal-motor weakness or ataxia is an indication that you need to just rest and let the body heal first.

    Seriously though, if you have any questions Matt, call me.
