Well Fri morn wasthe big day.. went in at 7.30am and under the knife at 8.30am. They didn't finish until after 1pm!! almost 6hrs worth! All they did ay pull the old rod out and put a biggerone in with 2 BIG self tapper screws. I have bruises all over my back and chest from where there were struggling to pull the rod out and were holding me down etc. It was a little bent in the middle! Anyway.. I'm feeling about 2 months down the track compared to last time.. out of the sling 1/2 the day and moving around. This time the bones are together and not moving around so my arm works like it should.. hopefully they'll join up. Will post an X-ray when I get it scanned... the staples look cool on it!! Later all! ------------------ -- **Ride it like you Stole it!** Matt Porritt 99 YZ400F Vist the Rubber Chicken Racing Online Shop Discounts for ThumperTalk members.
