    the first time since my motorcycle accident. I was so relieved when they took the bandages off and I had stitches instead of staples. My knee doesnt look to awful. Not like i pictured it would be. Although I was shocked when I seen the xrays. I took thesee with my cell phone so they arent the greatest. Buy I just could believe how much metal I have. 4 plates and over 2 doz screws.

    I'm glad you appear to be feeling better... You have a load of hardware in your leg!

    Do you still have any external fixation? How long will you be off of it?

    Looks like you are well on your way to starring in a remake of the old Bionic Woman and Six Million Dollar Man shows.... :p

    Good to see you on the mend and getting better and stronger each day. As a guy who has had both knees dislocated (not quite as bad) the recovery is slow but you will do great and be good as new soon....

    Our thoughts are with you.
