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.

Exclamation Re: Prayers needed for a speedy recovery

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

Thank you for the update steelerbackr4life!!! It sounds like your recuperation has progressed nicely and you are well on your way back to "your life"!!! I wish you all the best on your return to work, but as SCM so correctly stated - don't overdo it too soon. Please let us know how everything goes tomorrow.

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.

GB,

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.
