I have been lurking this site for a while and have finally decided to become active. July 2010 I fractured my tibia plateau almost to the knee joint and also cleanly broke my fibula in a motorbike accident. It was fixed with two plates and "at least" 13 screws says the doctor. I am still paying the price and work in the oil patch up north generally doing long shift work in the cold. If anybody is interested in the x rays, holla back it looks like a heavy metal album cover lol.
