Judging by the injuries, I'd say his face...

Hope you heal soon mate. In the meantime, tell everyone the other guys came off even worse

Hope you're healing up quickly Qdos. Were you given any exercises or physio to do to speed up the recovery?

FTR, I fell 10 metres in a rock climbing accident and broke my right leg in 4 places. I had some pretty wicked bruising which looked very similar to yours. I also had 50cms of titanium and 4 screws put in my leg courtesy of the Australian healthcare system which, while flawed, is among the best in the world in my opinion.

2 years later I had another surgery which would have cost me about $20,000 had I not had private health insurance. As it was deemed non-critical it would have taken me another 2 years on the aforementioned healthcare system waiting list to get done (like I said, it IS flawed) but the pain was almost unbearable so thank goodness for Medibank Private. Worth every cent I pay for it :) I never thought I would need private health but have since used it several times to my advantage.

It's getting better day by day guys... but my oh my, that nose looks sore...

I once had a queen wasp fly up my nostril when I was a biker, lovely summers day, visor up... was doing about 55mph, and wham... it impacted in my sinuses and was still stinging me 20 minutes after the accident!

Most novel way I've every come off a bike...

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 - OEM Service Pack 1

Brief synopsis:

Had a nasty chest infection that was making me cough an awful lot get rid of the phlegm in my chest. Any ways on the 2nd I was coughing so much I managed to starve my brain of oxygen and collapsed head first into my fan and then hit the floor nose first, next thing i remember was waking up in a pool of blood and not being able to move at all. Dumb thing was I live alone and had locked my door with the key in the lock My neighbour has a key but obviously could not open the door either So eventually i managed to crawl to the door and pull the key out and the rest is in my previous post.

Suffice to say I am suffering big time with the broken ribs and can hardly walk but I was lucky I guess it could have been much worse if it had not have been carpet I fell on.

Win 7 ultimate x64 sp1

couple years ago i got hit in the leg by blue, my greyhound, while he was going full blast playing with a lurcher friend of his. went to hospital when the side of my knee swelled up like half a baseball. no break or torn ligaments but 'massive tissue damage' couple days later (dog was fine of course) :

the purple slowly worked it's way down and around the leg to my toes, took over 8 weeks to clear & get my leg back to normal. had to prop up my leg at work or edema made the leg swell up. i happened to be working for the NHS at the time, in their IT support team, so i could look at my own records and xrays while at work. treatment was mostly tylenol & sympathy.

p.s. - NHS charge for parking at the hospitals, and unless you are over 60 you pay for prescriptions. there is a committee of bean counters who decide if the medication you need costs too much, if they decide that you cannot have it, you can usually pay for it privately but then the NHS washes it's hands of you and will not treat you at all. lots of women with breast cancer were denied a particular treatment as it was too expensive, even tho it would have saved lives. govt. targets means you get to see a doctor for maybe ten minutes before he needs to get you out so he can see another patient. need a specialist? you get on an unofficial waiting list to get on the waiting list that is subject to targets. miss an appointment? start over. even if missing the appointment was due to the doctor being unavailable as he was in surgery. my MIL had a cataract operation cancelled and rescheduled 3 times. twice after she'd travelled 30 or 40 miles to get to the hospital. she was each time put back on the waiting list. after the second time she pulled some strings thru the army where she used to work, and finally they operated on one eye. then she went back on the waiting list for the second. after another cancellation she contacted her MP who finally put enough pressure on & got her other eye done.

quality of doctors vary, tho most of the nurses are good and caring, just overworked and underpaid. too much of the budget goes to management, my manager had a manager who reported to the IT manager who reported to another manager who reported to yet another manager who reported to the hospital manager. and at each level their were management staff to collate and process data on how targets were being met. the service stumbles along, people get treated, mostly free, but it's a bureaucratic nightmare.

Well. I hope you get well soon Steve. Sounds like you had a lucky escape there.
And Qdos. I hope your leg is getting pinker by the day.

I know this is a serious thread about human suffering but I have this image of a Hells Angel in full leather gear stumbling around with a queen wasp up his nose, trying to get his helmet off.
Nothing funny about that in any way of course....

Figured I'd check to see what the rest of you think about the new Doctor. Personally, I thought David Tennant was brilliant, but Matt Smith seems to have the role down pretty well. I'm excited to see the next episode /w Winston Churchill and more daleks.
