Be carful guys

Post by Rocky Scott » July 17th, 2011, 9:51 am

Well 2 weeks ago I had a four wheeler accident at Lake Russell. I was goofing off and was thrown to the ground breaking my femur in 2 places. One of which was completely in half and the other almost in half. They transported me to athens regional by ambulance where they did surgery the next day. I was released 3 days later. Let me tell you guys things can change in a hurry. So my summer is f'ed up just like last year. I had knee surgery last june on the other leg. Yall have fun fishing as it lloks like my recovery is going to be a long one. This has definitely changed my outlook on life and I will think twice before I do something crazy.

That sucks... I used to do some crazy things on 4 wheelers and motorcycles and was very lucky I never had any serious injuries. I hope you are not in too much pain and have a speedy recovery. Dirk

I don't guess you had a helmet on your leg. It's good you didn't bust your head open. Definitely hope for a speedy painless recovery for you, Rocky. Don't worry, we'll catch one for you! :D

Dam dude, Femur is a pretty big bone. Hard to imagine how hard the impact had to be to break it. Good thing you're young.

Mike it was not that hard of a hit. I hit the ground and went to roll over. My leg was totally limp. I lay there for a few minutes thinking I'll just roll my hip back in socket. It roll back in. Thats when I realized I have a serious problem. I now have a titanium rod from in my leg from hip to knee (no cast). I got 2 very small things of road rash, one of is already healed. The other can be covered with a quarter.

Good to hear you are going to get back to work. I think you'll like that new sonar and I think winter is a good time to spend the time learning to use it.

X2 - both from the perspective of glad your back healthy and in action, as well as the sonar - get those jigs out :)

Well, it looks like my season is screwed again. I have a non-union of the bone. Which means the bone is not fully growing around the rod and growing back together fully. Im scheduled for surgery mon the 13th. They will remove all the hardware in my leg, drill/ ream out my femur, and replace with larger hardware. This has a 75% chance for success to help with bone growth. I will be back down again for around 6 months.

I'm trying to quit smoking. I smoke 1/2 pack a day and they are blaming the lack of bone growth on part of that. Not making excuses but I'm not a 3 pack a day smoker.
