    Back in November 2011, I fell down a step and shattered my patella (knee cap). I needed surgery to pin it back together. The fracture healed quickly, it took the usual 6 weeks to fuse back together, but five months later I am still on crutches and trying to get my knee to bend...

    In July 2014 I had a motorcycle accident.

    I broke my forearm in multiple places. The docs pretty much saved the arm using thin plates screwed to my arm but my last visit the x-rays show that 3 screws have broken their heads off allowing the plate to lift off the bone . Chinese screws no doubt bought on eBay
