Going Under the Knife: Surgery on my Leg

There is no way you’ve been following my blog for very long and you don’t know about my horrible experience on a BMW F800S. If you are new however the short version is, bad crash lots of metal in my left leg.

Looks cooler than it feels.

I generally try not to talk too much about how all the metal in my lower left leg bugs me on a day to day basis. The nagging pain etc. is not really that interesting or that fun to talk about so I don’t feel the need to bore you unless it effects my being able to ride. Which thankfully it doesn’t much.

Not that it doesn’t bother me when riding, just not constantly.  My leg doesn’t support my weight as well as it used to, so when shifting from one side of the bike to the other when riding spiritedly it can give me a twinge. However, since it bugs me more on a daily basis and can be extremely painful in any hard jarring shock to my leg I’m going in for surgery next week to get it taken out.

I’m a little nervous about all of this and I am glad I got a good motorcycle trip in beforehand, but the weeks of healing during the nice spring weather is something I am not looking forward to at all. Hopefully it doesn’t drive me insane.
