WOW, a pretty cool spiral fracture, with a femoral nail..... Weve done a few of those at work, and its pretty cool to watch them being fixed...

 

TAP TAP with the hammer then zap with the x-ray and repeat...

 

You should not have too many problems with Scareport Insecurity, as the nail is made of titanium and so should not set off the magnetic field scanners (designed to pick up iron based material) but take the films with you anyway.

Terms like "Shafted" and "Screwed" come to mind.

My old man had one like that when he had a motorbike accident.

 

He reconed that if he was to snuff it prematurely, at least he'd worth something for the scrap metal. So keep your chin up mate. things ain't as bad as you might think!!

Many years ago we had an instructor, Bert Johnson I think, from the Southern Cross Gliding Club in Sydney visit our Leeton Club with a group of glider pilots some of whom were trying to get their cross country endorsements.

 

 

 

One of his tests was to take a new pilot up and fly to Leeton about 5 or 6 km and then fly back over the strip and ask the student pilot where was the airstrip. A surprising number according to some of them had no idea where the field was.;)

 

 

 

I will not add any further comment except that I was not one of HIS students!

 

 

 

Well a feature of this fellow was that he had an artificial leg and pointed out that sometimes it was an advantage. He related how one day visiting somebody their dog raced out and bit his artificial leg or tin leg as he called it.

 

 

 

A very surprised dog was the result. :confused: The dog did not continue the attack.

 

 

 

Regards
