    dr mark! your input on what to do?

    is the right at risk if i get it done now??? or will it be ok if i get it done now? within the next 2 weeks?
  2. hey doc had a knee reco just over 5 months ago and knees doin well. since then iv done my left acl also meaning that needs a reconstruction. on the left their was no miniscus tear just a torn acl with minimul to no swelling at all. my doc is making me hold off on the opp till february. which is 3 months from now. im hoping to get it done this month. meaning that the opperation will be done around the 6 months post opp time. he says its a danger to the right knee whih was done just under 6 months back and doesn't even wanna try and get it done this month. cant do it next month or jan because hospitals are off at that time apparently. should i get on his ass about getting it done this month? is my right knee still at danger>? his worried about the rehab part and putting all my weight on the right knee and then maybe tearing it? what do you think>? thanks, Allen

    oh yeh! and iv been on some non-steroidic inflamatory pills since about wednesday and they kind of seem to be helping. (been a few days now) got about 6 left. i have one a day so ill see how i feel after they finish!. apparently the pain goes away after i finish this course and i have no problems with it nemore. it was just an inflamation problem! fingures crossed its just that ay.

    hey captain! yeh man thanks alot for the reply. i can do a light jog on it and that but it feels as though its not very solid! iv been off for 4 weeks not knowing wats the go. iv visited the physios and theyve said theirs nothing wrong with it. but those clowns bend ur leg a few times and think they know wats goin on. visited the gp's and they reckon its just sevier spraigns! iv booked a orthopedic knee surgeon for may the 5th to get a MRI scan on it. also gonaa try get a 2nd input into it earlier to see weather i can start some cycle training on it and etc. i been doin a huge amount of swimming since it happened! and i do alot of walking in the water aswell. its pretty good now but i know its not RITE! ill wait for the doc see what he says. it does not produce any pain when doctors and physios push on all the different parts of my knee at all. now when i hyper extend it it does not put out much pain either nemore. its more the when i pull back on it and stretch it backways. feels like theirs a peice of nerve or something rite in the centre of the knee producing a heap of pain! dad reckons its from the inflamation in the knee.! but both my knees are pretty much identical at the moment. the injured ones not very swollen at all. MEH! im very impatient about finding out wats goin on lol. thanks again man!

    yeww haha fellow aussie here haze! oi man what pipe do u have? i through on a titanium pc pipe on mine with stock jetting and 13 48 gearing and is pretty sick!.. supercross its pretty gay but ill throw a 12 back on the front for that when i get back on riding and test a bit. this injury is killing me!
  12. hey doc! and fellow riders, on the easter long weekend i had a pretty harsh crash at my local track. easter being about 4 weeks ago now. i was wearing asterisk knee braces. and got up straight after my accident and thought my knee was just spraigned. so just waddled around for a bit.. that night it was not so bad. but the next day was intense. could barely limp... it has now since gotten so much better. but still seems to be pretty sore when i hyper extend it ( straighten it and try to go pastt the straight degree) and also if i pull on it backwards and try to stretch it. sometimes while on my feet it may give up. but very very rarely! i can aslo feel that it is very tender when i would try to rotate on my knee.. it will get really painful.. although this also sometimes may happen on my left knee which has pretty much never had an injury! another problem i have is when i try to tense the quad muscle in my right leg it will not tense as hard or tough as my left knee which has not been in an accident before! wats the go?? im seeing a knee surgeon on may the 5th but until then i wanna know whats the go with all this. any ideas?? what are you thinkin? cheerz. if anyone else has any info or questions.. feel free to ask. Allen

    fellaz as u wear the bike in it gets much much easier to start no jumping no nothing needed u can just sit on it and just push down half way and it will start. also jetting i cant remember but i changed my main jet cant remember what to and also my other jet. ive got em on paper if u want ill get em for yaz but that was also pretty hard in the begining. the best thing to do with the thumpers is get their fuel and air mixture perfect aswell as their idle to keep them running like a watch alwayz make sure u bike is snappy very snappy after multiple revs and take 1 and a half turns back this way ure bike will never overheat and make restarting a peice of cake. also when its flooded after a stack or something or u stall it, dont accelerate or use the hot start just give it 4 or 5 kicks to empty the bowl of the carby then on ure 6th kick make sure its top dead centre and give it a squirt of throttle and ure set. hope that helps there is much more to it and i could be writing all night. hotmail=wogslife@hotmail.com
