I just found this forum tonight and figured it would be a good place to share my story. Back in February, I snowboarded into a tree at Breckenridge to avoid hitting someone in front of me. I severely fractured my right fibula and tibia and almost lost my foot. I had two surgeries to get two plates and 19 screws installed in both bones. I also had to get a skin transplant to help a wound heal.
Fast forward to last week, I found out that I broke both surgical implants during my physical therapy. I'm back to ground zero, facing my third surgery in a few weeks.
I was dying to get back on my board next February, but it looks like that's going to be pushed back. Anyone else have any problems like this?
I've been keeping a stupid blog up to date since February, mainly to share all of the gross pictures with friends and family. I was in an external fixator for a while. You can get to it at Snowboarder vs. Tree
