I know the ache you speak of lol. With this one I fully expect to have a hip replacement before I'm 50. If not way sooner than that. It sucks but that's just the way it goes with a oops in this sport.

With that said though they were only going to do the 2 screws. But the small bone from my femur to the hip socket was broke in 3 places. Not 2 like they thought. That's why they ended up putting the plates in to secure what the original 2 screws were ... more »

The doctor a surgeon's told me with as young as I am they dont want to do a hip replacement unless necessary. He said with me doing construction work and being normal 22yr old it would last me maybe 6-7yrs before I needed a new one. Hopefully it doesent ... more »

Long story short had a pretty good wreck and bike hit me with alot of force in a awkward position. I've seen broken femurs with rods and such but never this. The doctor almost recommended a new hip at 22yrs old but said we would try this first so it

Okay that's what I've been assuming it was. Normally I dont adjust it unless it's a soft loamy day then I firm it up a bit but wasnt sure if it would make a huge change to the other forks settings.

Added reply in a thread Do you replace your helmet after a crash....?? 1/4/2019 8:09 PM

I only replace mine after a really good hit. But I also only buy the $200-350 helmets for this reason. I dont replace many from wrecks but its alot easier to cough up 300 compared to 500-650.
