Tomorrow (tuesday) I depart at 5AM to go to Salt Lake City. I will be here:
for at least 24 hours.
If you could not tell that is the University of Utah Orthopaedic Center
. I'm going to have a primilary "investation" which will involve a somewhat large cut to fold down the skin to acess the knee and also to see if there are any clear obvous reasons for the extensive nerve damage. Depending on how bad the internal swelling is and how normal everything has healed in the last 10 days Dr. Burks
may or may not try to repair anything. If the ligaments are not as bad as he suspects, some stage 1 work will be done to help reduce the constant pain and restore some of the strength. right now my lower leg is merely being held in by skin pretty much, a child could pull on it and rip it out of its place
..... this right here is not cool so I hope the doc can do something.

Just the knee or is the hip and pelvic area also affected
You know what I'm talkin bout. :P
Doesn't matter though because it will keep you out of trouble.
I think it would be cool to have hand throttle and braking controls.....just like a video game.
The paralysis is just from the knee down. THANK GOD LOL. I still have a dropped foot and cant fill the skin and cant move the foot or toes
