Default Crashed hard!!!!!

     

Everyone nows I was riding with a cracked pink this weekend. Well, I geuss I'll be riding with more then a cracked pink next weekend. During the training session in the morning I didn't notice much troubles of my pink. I taped it with an iron that was a little bend and it worked very well. It happened during my first heat. In lap 4 I was still in 10th position and when I took a jump over a tabletop I noticed that the rider before me changed his course RIGHT IN FRONT OF MINE!!!!: I landed on his side and took a bad crash on my back. I was able to stand up immediatley to walk to the side. I noticed there that I couldn't breath and my body was in total shock of the crash. Heart pounding, shivering, very scary. After a few min the breath came back and I was left with a very painfull back. Because of my bike was crashed I had to quit this heat. The other rider was already gone, i even don't know who it was, lol. Back at my camper I coughed a little bit and I got a little blood in my mouth. This kept on for 30min or so. After that the bleeding stopped. probably my ribs touched my lunges and damaged them a little bit. I started my second heat but couldn't ride hard because my back hurted like hell over every bump. i was able to roll in 12th out of 39 people. Overall 19th. Today my ribs at the backside are still hurting alot. Hope the pains go away because another championshiprace is coming up this weekend. The funny stuff is, ladt year I broke my collarbone on the same track. No luck for me there.
Thanx for reading

Raf

Dang Raf, glad to hear you are feeling a bit better now. I take it the other guy didn't go down as well? I can't even imagine getting back up and going out feeling like that.

Rest and heal up!

I whish I could rest a bit. Another race for the championship coming up and because I didn't did well for the last few races the other guys are closing in on me!!! I'm gonna need some painkillers I guess !!!

I don't think the ribs are broken, just bruised.

Raf,

You should go to a doctor and get your ribs/lung checked. My best riding buddy last year thought he just took alittle bump to the chest and two days later he got a collasped lung because his rib punctured it. Lucky for him if he had waited a third day, he would of gotten pneu and that is very serious and could be deadly.

You better do this before Char finds out, because she will be chewing your arse as soon as she reads this.

If I had a collapsed lung, wouldn't I have breathing problems?? I did ride my second heat and had no worries except for my ribs and back. Thanks for the worries!!

The problem can be:

If you have a cracked or broken rib. Any sudden moves can cause the broken rib to rupture the lung.

My friend was restricted off the bike for 2 months.

Raf...if I have to fly over there and take your butt to the doctor I will....I'll be ticked by the time I get there (and poor, mind you) .

Seriously Raf, you might want to have it looked at.

And take it easy....that's an order

I doubt it is broken, it would inflict more pain at the moment I guess.

I know you're right Char/Rick but it's my personality. I don't run to the Doc very quick, one of my bad habits I know. I really doubt there's more wrong then a few bruised ribs and a soar back. I got to work today and did fine. Just not much lifting and stuff. I'm sure, if it was more I felt more pain. Thanks

Probably a little vein (where the blood runs through) that snapped with the impact. Happens a lot!! It did scare me for a while though.

It's not a broke rib that concerns me Raf, it's like mxerncolo said....that blood had to come from somewhere.

Raf,

Let me warn you, Char can kick serious butt. She works in a hospital and the worst thing you can do is piss off a nurse before she sticks you with a needle.

My mom used to be a nurse, and when she goes to the doctor, she tries to diagnoise herself to the doctor.

The last time she went to see the doctor, the doctor told her he wasn't ready to give her a medical diploma yet:
