Title: My Normal Un Safe Routine Cost Me Today
Post by: POSTON WIDEHEAD on March 26, 2018, 06:12:38 PM
Been getting off backhoes for years. Grab the handle and swing out and let go like a 
paratrooper.....let go and hit the ground running.
Well it got me today.
When my foot hit the ground it hit halfway on a piece of asphalt, twisted under and all 209 pounds came down on top of it from 5 feet up.
Felt like 300 volts went through my leg.
Laid there and didn't move for 7 or 8 minutes.
Once the pain left a little the ankle and foot went numb.
I was able to move it different ways so I thought....I got this. Jumped up, put weight on it and hit the ground. Not good.
Slowly got back on the backhoe and drove back to the mill where Kirk was sawing.
Crawled to a bench and took my sock and shoe off.......
DanG what a knot!

Told kirk to keep sawing to finish a cedar job. I made it to the truck and got home.
Called for back up and Paul came from school and Julie from work.
On to the hospital.
Had to sit and wait my turn but at least I had my own room.

Finally on to my photo session.

(http://forestryforum.com/gallery/albums/userpics/24625/AK4.jpeg?easyrotate_cache=1522100296)

I asked the photographer what he thought.....he said I better let the Doctor talk to you.....
that got my Goat!

Doc said he has never seen an ankle swell like that and NOT be broken.
He wrap it up and told me to get a boot that takes air to stable it.

Member John Deese is shipping me one of those boots he used when he did something stupid
hurt his foot. Thank you so much Deese!

Gotta go back in a week for a follow up.

So I'm on my way home and at the time this pic was taken I was actually talking to the 
Jeff who had called me. He actually cheered me up as this ankle WAS and still is throbbing like crazy!

(http://forestryforum.com/gallery/albums/userpics/24625/AK6.jpeg?easyrotate_cache=1522100296)

Member Tony Tyson hollared at me, bless his heart, he has Newmonia.
Members Wm. Fritz and Custom Sawyer Jake were talking amputation.....I get no respect.

Can't walk on it for 2 weeks. Ouch!

Y'all be careful.....it only takes 1 second.....Ĺ second when you're doing something stupid.  smiley_tom_dizzy02
*****Note to management.....I am on some groovy, far out pain meds and cannot be held responsible for what I say on the FF tonight.  :D :D :D :D

A sprained ankle sure does hurt and does not heal quickly.  Sorry you will be out of commission for a little while but at least you got some stuff to take the edge off.  If I remember correctly, your truck is an automatic.  Be thankful you don't have a clutch and have to drive under 38 traffic lights to get to work and 39 to get home.

Hopefully you will regain your goat-like agility soon.  Kirk is going to have to work at least 10% harder to take up the slack. ;D

I did the same thing right around a year ago, except I didn't go in to the Dr. for it (my wife is still mad at me). I have a real tendency to sprain ankles, usually minor but occasionally I get one bad. Getting in and out of equipment is always dangerous, familiarize yourself with the 3 Points of Contact method. It can help keep you from damaging your hoofs, needlessly.
Title: Re: My Normal Un Safe Routine Cost Me Today
Post by: Magicman on March 26, 2018, 07:39:01 PM
Ouch!!  I guess nuttin  that you or anyone else can do now except to keep it high and try to keep comfortable.  Maybe some Purple Drank might help?  At least it would match your ankle.  
Title: Re: My Normal Un Safe Routine Cost Me Today
Post by: Dave Shepard on March 26, 2018, 07:42:21 PM
Yes, 3 point method is very important, and required in joins where somebody is watching. These injuries are compounded when you spend a lot of time sitting, then jump down and put a big shock on the ankle. Often, the ankle just explodes.  :o

When I was a kid, I jumped out of a tree, intending to land on a horse that was on a dead run, a complete miss and busted my foot. I hobbled/crawled home. It was on a weekend so when mom called the doc, he told her if I wasn't crying it wasn't broke. Hmm it wasn't straight, but it wasn't broke, OK. Dad set it and wrapped it in an ace bandage, then built me a set of crutches. It was nearly 3 months before I could walk without them. Fast forward I was in a major wreck, and they Xrayed everything, the doc ask who had set my foot, I told him I did, why. He said he was going to have to rebreak it. When I ask how he intended to do that, he said hit it with a hammer. 
Well I told him that foot has been walking fine for 20 years, and I didn't break it on purpose the first time, and I was pretty sure he wasn't mean enough to break it again.

I feel for you, do like they tell you, and it will heal quicker. I am sure you won't and it won't either though.

I just hope your doctors diagnoses is right. A few years ago my old partner flipped his fourwheeler back over on top of him and busted up his face. We got him to the hospital and they took xrays and said nothing was broke, but he had to have plastic surgery. This meant a 180 mile ambulance ride, and when he almost choked to death half way there because a bone turned and blocked his air. the plastic surgeon took one look at him and said yep, he would be needed, but he couldn't do anything until the bones were fixed. Now one doctors opinion of the xrays was nothing broke, the doctor that fixed him put 9, count them 9 plates in his face, every bone was crushed. I guess that is different from just being broke though.

You know what happens to lame livestock, we're rootin for you
Mainly cause goat ain't worth the freezer space :)

I did sorta the same thing as starmac, hobbled off a wicked "sprain" for several months then a few years later hopped off the k-boom and sprained it again lightly but sorta went lame. I finally went in to the ortho doc and told him I couldn't walk unless I was looking at the ground every step. He took some pics and said "when did you break your leg". I had wrapped it up good back then, turned out it healed up well enough but it tore one of those ligaments down there and then the k-boom sprain finished it off. He said "look ahead and stand on just that one leg", I would have failed a sobriety check, couldn't do it. Turns out we get feedback from our feet to our brain and then back to the muscles that instantly balances us without any thought. When we mess up some part of that the feedback loop is broken, I was compensating using vision. They did some pt to retrain it and I still try to stand on one leg, should do it more, for about 10 second stretches to keep it tuned up. Yoga helps too, I try to watch my wife doing that every morning.

Sprains can swell dramatically.  This is not rare, regardless of the doc's amazement.

With all that swelling, light compression and elevation higher than your heart is the best medicine.  Although more costly, I occasionally place bad sprains into a boot or even a cast, after the intial swelling decreases.  Patients get to walk sooner with the increased support that is simply not afforded by ace wraps.  Ice, Ice, Ice.  

Get well soon.

It is a good recipe, but you have to boil the old goat for a long long time.  Goats can be tough and stingy, and fractious, especially if they are wearing a boot.

I guess because itís weak. Doc said it may take over a year to get full strength back
Title: Re: My Normal Un Safe Routine Cost Me Today
Post by: Don P on March 28, 2018, 10:29:09 PM
A sprain is a stretch, or in a bad one like that, a tear in a ligament the connects the bones in a joint together, so it is weaker. The best way to get strength back, stabilize and brace it and protect it from rolling in the future is to strengthen the muscles around it.

This may be a good place to mention the new ankle brace I got the other day, ASO Ankle Brace. I have had foot/ankle problems for years and tried a few braces that were bulky and didn't fit in normal shoes while these ASO braces fit with my New Balance walking shoes and 2 different pairs of hunting boats so far. They are thin nylon under the foot and have other thin nylon straps that cross your foot and hook on Velcro. When worn with my low New Balance shoes it feels sort of like a good hunting boot and with the boot it really stabilizes the ankle. Only about 30-35 bucks.

Ankle is doing better. I can walk straight on level ground and you would thing everything is fine.
Just can't quite walk on an incline yet or step on anything that will twitch it to the left.....
its sore. I wrap it before I go out and walk slow. Still a little swelling but slowly getting stronger.

Try walking from heel to toe. Sounds easy but it can be like learning to walk again. Plant your heel solidly then roll your foot up to your toe. It seems you should be healing by now . Stay healthy.
