His first surgery was at the local trauma center after his crash. When his surgery didn't take, he traveled to Vail, CO and had a revision which worked. Not sure about anything more than that, but if you're on opiates for a long time dependence can certainly ... more »

Cycling. No secret here. It's why the pros spend more time on a bicycle than a dirt bike. 10-15 hours/week here, but I'm racing mtn bikes these days instead of dirt bikes.

Hard to stuff down and tolerate a sweet potato, pickled food (although pickle juice is often available), etc while racing. As a doctor I can tell you that there are too numerous to count examples of patients becoming hyponatremic and seizing from hydrating ... more »

Stop drinking all water. There are multiple hydration mixes out there (Trailmix, SIS, Hammer, Scratch, etc). It's what we use mtn biking. I just did a 40 mile, 4500' climbing mtn bike race in 3 hours on that stuff. It's excellent. I used to get crushed ... more »

Orbital rim, nasal, and likely a laforte fracture subtype. Add that to him being on a ventilator for a week or so and he’s not racing for 6 months.

I send a few a day to the OR. These come in 6 types and the complications thereof depend on the grade. We close most of these on day 1 instead of using an ex fix.

Cadaver grafts are the weakest. About 75% of the native graft. Hamstring is second best. Patella is the strongest, which is why we encourage young athletes to go that direction. Is rehab harder? Sure is, but I’ll suffer s little linger to have a better ... more »

This is not true. Patellla grafts are the standard for all athletes. NFL, Soccer, US ski team, etc. I work at a world renowned ortho hospital and send people to the OR daily. Cadaver grafts have about 75% strength. Patella is over 90% when compared vs ... more »

I'm a doc: 1. Get it done. You have the unhappy triad. You'll end up with a knee replacement in the next few years if you don't get it done 2. Best graft is the patella tendon graft. # 2 is hamstring. # 3 is cadaver. This is in regards to failure rates ... more »
