    yet another injury

    well i went away other week in caravan biking up yorkshire and on the third day away i tried down hilling for the frst time,on the 5th time down it was really windy and raining i had a bad front wheel landing off a 4ft jump clipped a root and it threw my head first into some rocks,i smashed my brand new 661 helmet on cheek and chin also landed on my shoulder hitting a large sticking out rock and felt it go,i also had 661 body armour on,my mate came down helped me to top of hill and took me back to my mrs at caravan and off we went to hospital,upon getting there they xrayed me and said nothing broken take ibufen for swelling and i all ready have to take morphine due to an accident i had 4yrs ago,been back to doctors and hospital 3 times until yesterday when they xrayed me again and know the fracture i had all along has opened up on the xray it looked like it was at least an inch gap i cant believe they didnt see it,got to go back to fracture clinic today to see about having it pinned so dont look like no riding for me for a while,bets of it is is they told me to keep moving it or i would get a frozen shoulder so i carried on going out on bike and other day i was 20 miles from home and went down some steps it felt like i had been kicked by a horse and i had to ride home with my left arm fastened iup

    Sorry to hear this one, do what the doc's say about the frozen shoulder, had that for many months in one, hurts like hell if you move the wrong way, being me I played badmington with it, thought it may help, only caused intense pain, got a phisio on to it, exersizes helped, then the other one started, just did the exersizes again, went away quickly.

    Bad enough getting the fracture without something else.
