Glad you're heading home, take it easy like they say. I'm just getting over shoulder surgery from a bike accident in the summer and if there is anything to pass along it's don't push your limits when you're healing bones.

Sorry about your uncle, but just to clarify, ibuprofen takes a toll on the kidneys (with over use) and intestinal/gastric mucosa. Paracetamol / acetaminaphen is liver toxic in high doses.

Op > you're lucky, get well soon.

Well guys... Physical therapy has come and gone today. Today I was able to stand up for the first time since walking to my car before the accident. Granted this was with help from the therapist getting up and a walker once up, but it is definitely a HUGE step in my recovery progress. I was also able to march in place slightly while standing as well. However it was only about 4" of lift for each foot, but it sure as Hell beats being bed ridden like I was. Just wanted to keep the community updated on my progress as I promised.

Also, I have another appointment with my internal organ injury doctor tomorrow, so expect a report when I find out the results from that.

Small world.... I heard about you from some guys at James firearms in Greer. Funny to see your story on here. Glad to hear you're doing a little better.

Nice! Glad you have been by their shop. I know Chris and Brad there QUITE well. I went to college and roomed with Chris for a few years and I was on the way to Brad's house when I had the accident. He was the one who called 911 and stayed with me in the ER until my parents got there. I am usually there helping them out on Tuesday evenings and Saturdays. When I get better, stop in and say hi as I will likely be there.

Just dropping in to give you guys an update on my status as promised.

Was transported to another doctor visit yesterday. Wasn't very sure who this doctor was, but found out he was one of my ER doctors that took care of me when I was first admitted to the hospital. He was also the doctor who noticed my ruptured spleen, lacerated liver, broken rib, and lung damage. I also found out that the damage to my right lung was more severe than I had thought as it had actually collapsed while I was in the ER. It recovered quickly, but did collapse nonetheless. He listened to my breathing and said everything sounded excellent and that I was lucky as all my damaged internal organs are self-repairing and should be better after 6 weeks. This includes the ~1" long and 1" deep laceration to my liver. So all is well on this side of the computer. My dad is pushing me pretty hard on the physical therapy which brings the pain, but it is necessary for my recovery. In doing so, I have regained 100% side-to-side motion in my left hip, and gained additional bend in my knees to get closer to 90 degrees. Hope all of you guys are doing great and enjoying your weekend.

Dunno if it puts your mind at ease, but liver tissue is one of the fastest growing tissues in your body, hence the ability to cut half of it out and give it to someone else, so if it sounded bad, its not. Well any internal laceration is bad, but you get my point.

So do you have a ~.5" scar on the sides of your rib cage? ~3-4" below your arm pit?

Sounds like you're doing great. Working in an ICU in Portland I see a lot of this, more internal damage though, strokes and MIs and such, as we're not a trauma center, but even so, it sounds like you're recover very well. Be lucky you weren't 20-30 years older, it'd be more than double the recovery time.

The car is ruined but those scars...



...they'll buff right out.



Really sucks to read about this because it happened almost exactly the same way to a co-worker of mine a couple of years ago. Interestingly enough after the wildly expensive exploritory surgery he went through to find his internal bleeding he had almost all the exact same issues you had. Lacerated liver, punctured lung, ruptured spleen etc.

He actually got criminal charges for crossing the center-line in his accident. Spent 2 weeks in jail and paid fines out the *** after he was completely healed. He was also not drinking.
