R Hip/Pelvis, Fracture

2007-10-18 – 2008-02-18

Grade: 3

Hit by a car while biking. MRI shows stable trabecular hip fracture. Only minor scratches otherwise.

Hip supported 30-40% load after two days. (I didn't get the MRI until 10 days after the accident.)

After 12 days of walking with a cane, the doctor ordered me back on crutches because of the MRI report.

At the end of February I was 90% recovered. As of early July I am 98% recovered.

I have stopped biking on Oak street. It takes me 4-5 minutes longer to get home after interval workouts, but there are fewer cars to worry about.

I guess the wisdom here is that being hit by a car sucks regardless of who is at fault.
