Default I look like I pissed off Vash

So Thursday night I was playing in the final softball game of the season, playing right field. Dude at the plate hits a hard tailing liner to right, I run up toward it and as I'm bringing my glove up, the ***** skips right across a bank of lights and I lose it completely. I move my glove up but the ball skips right across the top and nails me just above the left eye.



A few hours later after an ER trip, I've got a broken frontal orbital bone, a few stitches above the eye, and a ton of swelling. I'll be going to an ENT on Wednesday to be checked out because the orbit fractured in a few places and is displaced back into the sinus.

On the plus side, I got a prescription for hydrocodone. On the negative side, it barely touched the pain the first night. It's manageable now, but toward the end of each dosage is pretty sucky.

Well, that's not what coach meant when he said "keep your eye on the ball"




















I'm so sorry... I just couldn't help myself

All joking aside though, I had a very good friend who broke the same orbital, plus both his cheekbones (lower orbital?) in an airplane crash. They rebuilt the orbital with titanium mesh, but one eye sits about 1/16" lower than the other now. The convalescence was a bitch though. I wish you nothing but a speedy and uncomplicated recovery, ocular trauma is no bueno.

It's all the fault of the Federal Reserve Bank. If the US had stayed on the gold standard, your eye would be fine.

Ouch that had to hurt.

At least you have a proper beard. It makes you look like a bad ***, not to mention the color coordination with your eye!

So, met with the ENT surgeon this morning. Surgery is a definite, no question about it. The big question right now is whether they will be able to go in through the small laceration just below my eyebrow (thus minimizing additional scarring) or have to cut my scalp across the top and pull my forehead down over my face (oh! what a great Halloween costume that would have made). Looking like it'll be scheduled for the end of next week, as waiting any longer than 2 weeks will allow the bones to heal too much.

Thats a lot of pain to endure. Im sure youll be fine but you still unfortunately have more pain to go. Lay off the strong meds if you can though. Things are pretty addictive

I hear acupuncture and aromatherapy works great for blinding scorching crushed orbital pain.

Depending on what they give you, ^^ This.

I've had 3 reconstructive surgeries on my sinuses including a bone graft. They put me on this: WATSON 349 imprint (acetaminophen/hydrocodone 500 mg / 5 mg) - Drugs.com I took the recommended dosage and all it did was make me space out. Narcos are a real bitch and I discovered I really need to avoid them personally. It didn't make the pain go away, it made me not care about the pain, and that is the dangerous part. That part about "high psychological dependence" is legit, it was probably one of the scariest parts of the whole process. It scared me enough that I cut it back to 1/2 of the recommended and made it work.

Hopefully they won't (but they probably will) pack your sinus while it heals after surgery. That's a whole another nightmare. Having been there, I really really feel for you man. Watch your *** and get your rest.

I'm not a big fan of head trauma in the first place, but when crushing deformation of the skull is involved, it really kinda gives me the *******.
