Yup you read it right. Tommorow is my last game until July. Tuesday I'm having leg exstention sugery that takes until july to fully heal and strengthen. The are putting a device around my leg called a "halo" that's made of carbon fiber. It fully circles my leg and it stretches when I trun dials on it according to numbers the doctors give me. I may be out of school for the first six weeks on home and hospital howard county tutoring. I get to take midterms as soon as I come back from feeling like crap. I'll make sure to get a person out for everyone of you.(and every stupid post I've ever made)

Physical terrorism is the worst.

I ended up having my ACL be stronger than my bone so when I jumped off a wall while sprinting and the lower part of leg bent sideways, it ripped a chunk of bone on the top of my tibia off. Knee surgery and 6 mo/ later I was fine, but regaining range of motion in my leg was easily the most painful experience I have ever had in my life. Hope yours ins't as bad...

TheHeroGuy I also though you were talking about a carbon fiber Halo shell, lol. Good luck with the surgery!

Yes, this thread is supposed to be in the NPT, but it isn't, and will be moved when the mods feel like it most likely. If not, oh well.

Yes, he did post that, as you were about to quote it. ;)

Good luck getting out 367 + members when you get back, HeroGuy... lol, Just messin' with ya... Sounds like it'll be painful, just tough it out and you'll be fine. Props for deciding to go through with this, and good luck!
