Getting around the garage is tough as a multi-pod (crutches and a non-moving leg and a good one is quite a mix). If you are not tinkering and are in the mood for reading I can send along a few tech manuals to entertain you...
I am sure the dogs will understand that they have to miss out this autumns walks in the trees. It is amazing what is taken for granted while we are in good health... but once we are mended we can gain more appreciation for a lot of things we missed while recouperating.

I am thinking of taking on a DS60 project - not sure if the motors are similar or same or not - I have had conflicting information. Just thought I would cross the thought to you as I knew you did have a manual for the 50 engine.




@John - YES - there happens to be a couple of manuals that I do not actually have yet. lol

Right then, Update time!


Last time I posted I had stretched by 2.4cm, Ill do some re-cap pics to show how it has grown, But now I have finished stretching, In all I adjusted my frame 65mm to give my leg the 55mm back I lost, My foot is still in the frame but i have an appointment on the 16th to hopefully have it removed, I'm still walking with x2 crutches at the monent but i'm sure it will be easier to walk once I've had the wires removed from my foot,

this was my leg before my operation, it was 5.5cm shorter than my other leg,
Image

this was when they broke my leg to start stretching it, (in june)
Image

this was in july when I had started to stretch by 2.4cm
Image

and then this is in august I had stretched it 4.7cm
Image

And finally this is the day I did my last stretch
Image

so thats it really, I've had the frame on for around 9months now, so i should be about half way through my frame time, the consultant said it would take 2months of healing for every cm stretched so it should be another 10months before im frameless, but in fairness it will all be down hill now, Also I've been into work and they may be able to find me a position where I'm on my bum most of the day but i need to be able to walk down stairs without crutches first,

cheers
Luke

Good to hear that your progressing and things are going in the right direction still. I hope they can find some 'bum sitting' tasks for you at work so you can start to get back to a work schedule. Anytime I was stuck having to be at home it would quickly drive me nutz... not that I do not love being home, just I do not like the feeling of being limited to being at home.
Keep on heading in the right direction! We are all pulling for you!

Another update, They are coming thick and fast at the moment!

Today I went to see my consultant, he said I was doing great and my bone was healing (see the x ray) and that my foot frame could come off, I was chuffed to bits that the foot frame could come off as i can only decribe it as a torture device, the pinsites on my feet were always sore and now i'm looking forward to getting back on my own two feet,

here is my feet without the frame
Image

and my frame, they asked me if i wanted to keep it, I couldn't turn it down
Image

and here are the wires from my foot, the olive wires hurt the most when they came out, the one ordinary wire was strange it slide side to side in my foot and It didn't hurt at all
Image

and my leg now, They said I have to wear the bandage for a few days
Image

and finally my x-ray sorry its so small but you can see the gap between the bone and the faint line is the new bone growing if you zoom in you can see the grain of the new bone,
Image


I hope you are all still finding this thread interesting, Even though it is getting abit long in the tooth

Excellent having the pins out of the foot. I am sure the consultant mentioned that it is good to have a sore foot as it proves the nerves are not damaged... sort of makes you want to give the consultant a whack as a little reminder that their nerves are still working... lol
The thread is not getting long in the tooth - we are glad to hear that your leg is getting better and that you are okay.

Right then...I think its about time for an update, to start with my leg is looking better and more leg like......

Image

Image

Image

I've been in to see my consultant today, we got some more x-rays and everything is on track to have my frame removed in march time, Whilst I was there we were talking about pinsites and I was saying about how the pin that goes through my calf muscle is always leaky, and he said "well you don't need it now we can take it out" so I had a pin taken out today. The nurse let me pull it out myself, it was an olive wire so I was excpecting it to hurt, but because it was me pulling it out, it just felt strange. It was abit like when you cut your nails and then touch something and the skin is sensitive, bizarre really

Here are the x-rays you can see the lines where the bone broke but the grain show the new bone is growing well, I need to wait for it to 'consolidate' some more before my frame can come off.

Image

Image

As for myself things are getting better I'm getting about the house with out crutches and can mange longer distances with one. I've just passed the 1 year anniversary of the accident (on the 10th) and of having my frame on (the 14th) It's strange to think it has been on for so long as it doesn't feel like a year has passed

Glad it is all going in the right direction still. Hope you have been able to do more tinkering in the garage and mucking about with mechanically bits.

is it just me but i think the way you have leg fixture layed out there, it looks like a seat frame. it would be cool to put on a cafe seat seat as a border. glad to see your progress is going good. always a great read.
