Oh I bet you do. I still have flashbacks of the incident when I broke my back. Hard to forget stuff like that.

FQC,
That is a rough thing to witness. Jim and I have been through the wringer lately and can identify with the feelings. ICU time and lots of metal parts in our bodies. ATM is here for all our members. I hope you and your brother and father find some peace with what you have had to go through.

Bill

FQC,
I am the resident surgical patient here. Eleven surgeries since 2000, three on my back and 8 on the abdomen. Back is stabilized with two titanium braces from L4-S1 vertebrae and 4 Ti screws with 2 Ti cages on bone grafts where the disc were removed, 2 laminectomies failed within 11 months, the first one was one week after riding back to back classes of four motos at GMB I (I am slightly nuts, just ask around) 3rd time was a charm. Took the paralysis I had to drag around in my right leg for 14 years and made racing much easier. Unfortunately the scar tissue choked off the small intestine while I was under anesthesia and the didn't know for two days and I was taken back (man Monica can drive fast when she needs to) after 9 days for a complete ab and intestinal reconstruction.

Unfortunately I have severe scar tissue growth in the abdomen around my small intestine that chokes it off every few years due to a ruptured appendix that went into gangrene of the peritoneum in 2000 after I was sent home only to burst the staples and eviscerate the intestine completely. That was the life flight trip and first ICU visit. They left the incision open to heal so ICU time for a sterile environment.

Last summer after the 7th reconstruction and scar tissue removal from the intestine I came home but my kidneys failed and I went into a coma. That was an ambulance ride and the second ICU visit. There were two reconstructions in August 2005.

I had the 8th reconstruction in late November due to MRSA infections caused by four knicks (fistulas) in the bowel infecting the PTFE mesh they used to rebuild the ab wall. Seems to be okay this time with only 2 abcess so far. I have been back ay my job as an engineer since 3 January 07. I hope to get back to practice and then racing with my son , John (Madcow393 or the Sandbagger)by the end of this month.

Jim and I are the local survivors of extreme misfortune and experts on morphine.

Bill
