    caution: knee carnage photos.

    Well, my days as a knee model are over.

    This is what's left of my knee, 3 weeks ago.

    Stitches came out last week, and I'm starting to ride again, but I still have a literal hole in my knee that is getting a lot of stress with pedalling. Any one with a similar nasty flesh wound? How long were you off the bike? And how bad is your scar?

    Also, it is officially three weeks for me today, stitches out, nice scab, and very limited motion in knee. I haven't been able to bend it since my fall. I would say I have about %20 motion, and I anticipate another 2-3 weeks before I'm on a bike again. Could be six weeks before I'm back to normal.

    I originally posted my accident in Endurance XC racing: Le Mans starts: good or bad idea?

    Pretty embarrassing story, I'm laughing about it now.

    My knee is starting to cough up little bits of gravel now, luckily I work at a surgical hospital so I get plenty of doctor's opinions. Probably going to get another debridement next week to get all the yellow icky tissue out. So far the doc thinks I can heal on my own without a skin graft, but the Plastic Surgery doc keeps asking when he can jump in!
