Hey Guys,

So i basically destroyed my right femur.
Of course I has a rod in it now.
Its in several large shards.

My question is, at 43, what kimd of recovery am I looking at? How much of a risk is it to continue to ride/race.

Anything I can do to speed the healing process along?

Thanks Guys!

Jody Howell

Jody,
These are questions for your orthopedist. Only he knows the history of the break, the surgery required to repair, etc., etc. Thanks!

Thanks, totally understand.

Just curious of other guys experience.

Doctors are always so doom and gloom LOL.

Wish we had a good sports doc in my area. Only old school types around here.

Any advice on diet and rehab once he turns me loose?

Millions of supplements on the markets these days but didn't know if that was basically a waist on money.

Any help is appreciated.

Best regards,

I'd ask my doctor "So when I am fully healed, will I have any limitations? I ride motocross and wonder if I am at higher risk of re-injuring the break."

As far as supplements, in general I am not a huge fan of supplements. I feel that there is no reason to not get all nutrients from the food you eat. But......you may find these articles interesting.
