Either way, get better soon.

Thank You everyone. Someone upstairs likes me. I just returned from my Ortho Doctor and although I do have a broken proximal fibula bone (it is the small bone that runs along the back of the leg ) it will not require a cast and I can walk on it. He said usually the knee blows out completely with the type of injury I have.The only thing I have to do is rest and not over do anything. I go back in 2 weeks to make sure everything is healing ok.

Which is good because opening day in the Bronx is exactly 4 weeks away!

Sorry.. but... :toofunny::toofunny::toofunny::toofunny::toofunny: :toofunny:

Let me explain..

I decided a couple years ago to get back out on the ice after 15 years of not playing hockey (I grew up playing) What happened you asked? Well, the first time, I was literally laying on the bench gasping for breath.

two months later, I tried to stop and heard a massive POP in my groin muscle. I went down like I was hit by a bullet. Just a pulled muscle the doctors said! I was out for 2 months.

5 months later, I was playing, and I took a slap shot off my inner leg. It went numb from my knee to my foot. the puck seperated my nerve, and I still have a numb spot a year and a half later. Needless to say, I ended up back back in the X-ray room from that!

After that, my wife said NO MORE!

So now, she let me go buy new golf clubs!

I hope you feel better. But maybe like me, you should pick up golfing!

Ahhh, many injuries, many stories...kinda like the time a pulled some tendon by my knee while playing soccer with a few friends.
In any case, hope you get better and thanks be to God that it wasn't as serious as it could have been.

I've been there brother playing the same sport (two bones in ankle, went feet first in boards going for puck in corner at full speed). Wasn't it fun when they were pulling off your skate? Talk about seeing red.

Stay off it and get better soon. :thumbsup:

Thanks for the well wishes

Ive had that same injury before I broke it when I threw someone off the back of one of my teamates during a huge brawl unfortunately he landed on my ankle. It was ok until my skate came off then it blew up 3 times its size.

This one is up closer to the knee. I actually played the third period with it broke. I really didnt think it was broke until I saw the x rays from the E.R. There is alot of pain but only when I move it a certain way more like something associated with nerve or tendon damage.

AGAIN THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR ALL YOUR PRAYERS AND WELL WISHES! YOU GUYS ARE GREAT!

Here is an update on my status. At the time of the break my goal was to make it to Yankee Stadium for the home opener almost 4 weeks to the day of the injury. Normaly there is a long period of therapy and rehab but ever since the 2 week mark of the break I was given the o.k. to do light workouts at my gym. The only leg work I did was the bike. I started out 5 minutes on the lowest resistance and worked my way up to a half hour increasing the resistance as pain would allow. I made it to the home opener and and all went well. I just moved a little slower getting on the subway. I also during that time enjoyed doing all the little things I dont normally get to do like spend alot of time with my kids during the week and really get into their activities without feeling rushed. Also on weekends we planned trips (actually my wife did) that included light walking which was also a good form of rehab. I saw 2 Broadway musicals (one trip with kids one without) Monty Pythons "Spamalot" was my favorite "Wicked" was good for the family. So I definitely have been using my time off to enjoy myself while making my leg stronger!

2 weeks ago I got more xrays and while the bone was not at that time completely healed my Ortho said that I could go back to work as early as the 16th (tomorrow) if I wanted too and felt o.k.
This past Saturday was 6 weeks since I broke my leg the normal time supposedly for a break to heal. This weekend for my last rehab getaway we all went to Atlantic City and spent a short weekend there with family and friends for my Moms Birthday.
(if anyone gets the oppertunity to stay at one of the casinos I highly recomend the Tropicana ask for a room in the new Havanah Tower and dine at Carmines definitely an Italian treat)

I am going to work tomorrow on restricted duty. Although I am getting paid full pay to sit home and could still get paid for a long time. It is time to get back to work an make a little O.T. cash. So I can pay for the finer things like Summer vacations, new golf clubs (Preachers suggestion) and posible season tickets to see the greatest football team play in the greatest football town in the world!

So once again I am asking my friends at SF for prayers and well wishes for a safe return to the rat race.

Thanks Again
Vinny

Good luck SB4L. Dislocated my elbow in college. Slightly painful!!!! key to comeback was taking enough time off. Better to err on the side of safety! Make sure you don't come back too soon. However, sounds like things are going well.

Update: I went to work on Monday and just moved a little slower. Everything was good a little pain but nothing bad at all. I wound up working alot more overtime hours than I planned (23) but the leg held up well. This evening I even drove my Jeep for a little while (stick) with no pain. I still have a while to go before I strap on the blades again (I only got to the gym once) but overall everything is progressing nicely.
