Jeez I must not be goin hard enough, ive had a couple of stacks on me old TS185 bushbike but I aint broke nothin yet. Dunno if I can have kids yet though, I went over a firebreak once and i bounced up but the bike stayed down, and when I did come back down it was nuts first into the light bar, then i fell back and the bike ghostied into a power pole. My mates thought it looked tops anyway. The old ts dont have no light bar anymore.

It's my decision on the whole thing.
Because there is a segmental loss on the bone ( the pinky finger is tiny as it is..) there is nearly nothing left, the tendons were so badly damaged that there is next to no movement. And limited feeling.

The doc said people opt to have them cut off in this case because they are just "ornamental" and always get caught and on things and get in the way. So, of with his finger!
Over the last 2 weeks I have run into 5 people at my brothers bike shop with 1 to 1 1/2 fingers gone, all from bike accidents. 3 of them were also toolmakers like me and they all said "Mate, don't hesitate, you'll only need to knock it a hand full of times and you'll understand, piss it off, get rid of it"

I go in for surgery in 8 weeks and have to make a decision then on if i want to keep it or not. Surgeon is Dr. Hassan and the RMO is Papadopolous, both iv'e been told are gods at what they do, even they are stoked with how well my hand looks.

I'm told that the pinky is only used for picking your nose, plucking out your g-string (females only...) and for a power grip (swinging axe handle, heavy hammer blows etc...)

I'm scanning in the latest X-rays now. will post within next hour or so. And a few narcy photos. Might wanna put an MA15+ rating on this post Camel..

Ok, first of all, here is the girl that sadly passed to bring about my pain. (Pain that she is gone, not as a result of surgery..)

Image

It's fully setup for racing, well as much as i can and still be street legal...Well WAS setup...


ImageImage

Now to the damage..
Helmet and knee came off the best. Helmet is a 'one-of-a-kind' ONE industries TROOPER helmet that cost me $900. Covered under insurance... just.
ImageImage

My hand.
See where the pins are, there is a big black void.. thats where bone SHOULD be.. All those years of sucking on milk don't do f#&k all for this kind of damage...
Image

Now the sick sh#t.
ImageImage

My mates said i'd be hurt doing this first.. (Photo isn't of me, i'm not game enough to be filmed whilst doing it)
Image

Not to bad for a first attempt at sticking up photos. I'm soo happy for myself. Mummy thinks i'm cool.

Yeah Bildo I thought it was your whole hand too. If its the pinky thats not quite sooo bad.

At least you will get back to driving again even if it takes a while. Nice surgery on the hand. Still puffy and it will take a bit to settle . Then you get to play with the hand putty. I've been doing that after my last bout of surgery. Still got some nerve damage but the tendon is working good. Even got to drive 5 weeks earleir than the doc predicted.

I was hit by a car on my motor bike head-on on a bend before a level crossing.
He was trying to race the train and wasn't looking where he was going. Put me over his roof. Severe compound fractures of my right leg and also my left arm was broken. The worst thing was i ended up with parts of his headlight , blinker and road inside my leg. Severe bone infection stopped my bones from knitting for more than two years and the hard impact crushed the nerves from just below my knee. Spent over 12 months in hospital plus so many operations and more than two and a half years in full plaster on crutches ect .Could add a lot more but my purpose in writing this is to say BE VERY CAREFULL ON THE ROAD.Treat every car driver as an idiot. If i had my time again i would never have riden on the road. Raced mx, pony express ect before my accident without major injurys. Now i have permanent ones. Dont want to be a killjoy just putting my opinion out there.

A specialist may allude a patient requiring treatment for ear, nose and throat issues to an ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) Surgeon. The confusion requires treatment for issues identified with the thyroid working for instance, an Otolaryngologist, regularly alluded to as "head and neck" specialists, would be utilized. Patients who have a past filled with extreme ear diseases, or have left an ear contamination untreated ought to know about the threat of Cholesteatoma, which is a blister that structures in the center ear, pulverizing the ossicles (bones) in the ear which can prompt unsteadiness and even deafness. Ear contaminations are by and large treated utilizing oral anti-infection agents and anti-toxin ear drops. However should a youngster experience the ill effects of inherent Cholesteatoma, in which case the blister would set aside opportunity to develop or whether the condition emerges because of an untreated ear disease or a confusion because of a serious ear contamination: surgery would be required!
