So here's the story with my injury

We never officially discussed the injury, save for some instagram posts and such. I owe you guys some kind of explanation, hence this video. It's been exactly two weeks since I broke my leg and part of my ankle, and pretty soon I should be able to hobble around.

    Wow, I did almost the exact same thing on December 17th, 2020. Was just practicing my wheelies in the front yard and lost one leaning to the right a bit, something that's happened a thousand times but I came down hard on my right foot and the ankle just buckled. When I looked at my ankle it was bent 90 deg. Had surgery a day later, two screws, and a plate just like Seth. Going to start riding again very soon but I'm still a little scared it could happen again. As long as it takes another 30 years of biking to happen again I guess I'll be fine :)

    Ha-injuries suck and even worse when it involves mobility. I also had surgery with a plate and screws now residing over my left big toe 1st metatarsal. So the scooter was a necessity and quickly picked up on the wheeley spin turn as well as a few other maneuvers. Wore a cast, then a boot for 12 weeks total. I was riding easy neighborhood spins on the bike while in the boot just to maintain sanity. Then rehab easy road rides as the foot couldn’t take mtb abuse. Developed nueromas in 2 other toe metatarsals which limits the time on the bike. Finally back on the mtb some and extended road rides. Nueromas better but still flare up. Adapt and overcome and hopefully fully recover. Seth, Wish the best for your outcome.

    I feel you brother. I just broke my leg in three places and broke my foot in 4 places. I had a 4 hour surgery and I have a plate with 12 screws and 2 screws into my Tibia. I also dislocated my tibia. It happened on 10/18/2020 and I’m just now getting around. My doctor told me to get a bike since i have so much damage. So I went out and got an REI DRT 1.1 today and found your channel. Let me know if you need emotional support. 😂

      At my first post-op appointment my surgeon said that my bones healed so well that he couldn’t even see the fracture location. IMO it was the fact that I followed his advice and I elevated 90% of the time. So keep that leg up. 😂

    Seth, wanted to reach out and ask for your insight and possibly encouragement when it comes to getting back on a bike. Over a year ago, I broke my left clavicle into 4 pieces after coming off a bike onto my shoulder. Funny enough, this was not when I was on a trail, but on campus heading to class. Subsequently, I now have a roughly 6" long titanium plate, 7 screws, a pin, and some wire that were put in to hold everything together and allow the healing process to begin. Surgery was in September of 2019. Around January to February of 2020, I was experiencing a lot of pain and it simply did not feel right. When I went and had it checked out, I was informed that the surgery, as well as the hardware, had essentially failed (as I had 2 screws pulling out), and that I would have to choose whether or not to undergo a second surgery, which would include a bone graft. I told the doc I would think about it, not knowing that shortly after, COVID would hit. With that in mind, I decided to not pursue surgery at the time, as I simply did not want to be in a hospital unless necessary, nor did I want to increase any risk of contracting anything. That aside, it began to felt somewhat different, once again, around October of 2020. Decided to go see the doc again for him to check and see if anything had gotten worse. To my surprise, he informed me that it looked as if once everything had shifted around, that it had finally began to bridge and heal to some extent. I have not yet had a CT scan to confirm this; however, it is likely I will before too long. All of this being said, I have only gotten back on a bike once or twice since the accident. Part of that is pain, and part of it is fear. Knowing you have been through multiple injuries and hopped back on, I wanted to ask to see if you might have any words of encouragement or perhaps some things you did to feel alright about getting back on and hitting trails again. Anything you might have to say is greatly appreciated. - Harrison

    I had a similar injury except it was my tibia when I was in 8th grade, that was 13 years ago. It took at 12-18 months for me to be able to play sports without it inhibiting me, and i never got the same flexibility back in my ankle. It works, but it was never close to being back to 100%.

My wife was like you two are the same. The funny thing about that was on 11/21/2020 I got almost the same injury as you. I broke my ankle and fibula up on the trails. Can’t wait to see you back on your bike.

    Wow just realized you had an injury while watching the gift guide video. What is your recovery time and are you doing physical therapy? If so, I think many of us would be curious to see what it takes to make a full recovery. I ruptured a quad and dislocated a knee 6 weeks ago while bouldering. Much like yourself it wasn't while doing anything crazy, in fact I was just stepping down and jumped off the wall from a few feet up but landed awkwardly while turning. Just in the past week I was able to turn pedals on a PT bike, but it'll be another 4-6 weeks before I can actually bike with resistance or to get any kind of cardio. If you're like me, the biggest challenge is getting on/off the toilet. I highly recommend getting a handicap toilet rail kit off Amazon.

    Seth, I had the EXACT same injury with the EXACT same X-Rays and EXACT same screws and plate in the EXACT same spots (incisions and all). I feel ya buddy... it sucks. I snapped my fibula just like yours and jacked my ankle in the process... the ironic thing was that I was roller-skating with my daughter, showing off "how it's done" and then when I rolled up beside her I just turned left and turned back right and leaned back too far and fell on my behind while my feet were still planted. I heard my fibula snap over the DJ music... it was brutal. And so I ruined an 8-year old's birthday party getting wheeled out to the ambulance while they shut the skating rink down.

    Please look up Arthrex tightrope syndesmotic fixation. I am a practicing Orthopedic surgeon and am concerned about your X-rays. Time is critical. With this particular injury your syndesmotic ligaments between your tibia and fibula were torn and need to be fixed. I do NOT see signs of this fixation on your X-ray. Please check on this ASAP and if needed get a second opinion. Sorry about this info and your injury.
