    Day 226

    Just updating for the sake of updating. I'm physically 100% better, no longer hindered by any activity. If I take a shot right in the scar it hurts pretty badly but that's all. The skin is numb to light sensation, even the part that isn't graft area.

    I wear shin guards on every mtb ride now.

    That's pretty ugly, but doesn't seem indicative of the HUGE hassle that led to it. Sometimes the body is amazing at how it heals after severe injuries. Then, other times, this kind of $hit happens - it was just some skin, a big cut!

    Woah man, I just saw this thread for the first time and can hardly believe an injury that bad could be caused by pedals! Did you watch the doctors stitch your skin back together? 'Cause that would be a pretty knarly thing to watch. It sucks that the skin graft was needed but it's good to see you're doing better now and able to ride.

    What's your story, spdu4ia?
    If it ain't broke, fix it 'till it is.

    First, Ow. Second, Go Gators!

    When I was there (91-96), there was Fred Bear, 20th Ave, 8th Ave, and Powerlines. Where is Rock? Dang, did you get to go to Shands? I'm sure they take care of a lot of bike accidents--including mine when I got 3 stitches in my chin.

    Looks like you're healing well. I see a pair of shin guards in your future

    Long time update

    So this is what a skin graft looks like 3 years 3 months later. Skin pretty pink, no sensation on the graft, no hair either. I still wear shin guards on every ride no matter how tame.

    derockus you got the wrong tattoo, it should have simply been the word "TEAM" positioned right below that scar that still clearly says the letter A.

    Good to see things as they currently stand, it doesn't look quite so "angry" now.

    Out of green but happy trails.

    Nice, does the tattoo have any significance with the scar or injury?

    That's a pretty wicked wound! I bet that felt great! The bright side was your positive attitude, which is always good for healing. It's good to hear you weren't alone and made it out.

    It's just a flesh wound!

    Not the most gruesome I've seen, but yea, owch. The worse I've seen was someone that was doing iado with a live blade.. and put the sword in his arm rather than his saya. It went into the palm, near the wrist, and out through the top of his elbow.
