Wow, what a story. The part about going through the BK drive-thru on crutches is pretty hilarious.

Thanks all! Kevin, I look forward to that beer too! Actually, I'm working on a letter to the board at Denver Health now.

Thank you all for the well wishes. Things are hectic, but doing better.

And actually, after the dog got ripped open last night, and I wasn't sure if it was an animal at the time, I was getting the Rav 4 ready to take the dog to the emergency, on crutches with a .44 in my pocket, and I started to laugh at how absurd this whole thing is. What are the chances? LOL. Gotta laugh at it.

Hopefully you have seen a different Ortho after all of this. I would not trust such treatment to be good faith.

I was just reading this morning about how long bones take to heal. Well no wonder I am on crutches for so long. tibia are about the longest bone to heal besides the femur. any where from 10-24 weeks depending on the type of fracture. So Isaac my friend, be prepared for a good 10 weeks(easy) or more of taking care of your ankle. It sounds like you broke just above the medial mallious or a tubersioity, both will be a long time as this is a weight bearing area. Good luck with it all. And if you have not had a second opinion, I would get one soon.

Well Isaac look at it this way, it can only get better.

As for Denver Health,, don't even waste your time with a letter. Their ER is the best in CO with the best trauma unit in the country, one of the top three I should say. Had your leg been ripped of your body you would not want to go anywhere else.

It does suck how they treated you and the first doctor needs to be held accountable for his mistake as should the nurse. Problem is that in a turn and burn ER like theirs this is a minor mishap that is acceptable in their eyes. And the rude people there are overworked and underpaid for what they have to deal with. I know it is not an excuse but when you turn it around and look at what they deal with on a daily basis we would be cranky too.

Also just an FYI if you ever find yourself with a brain injury or spinal injury go to Swedish hospital! They too are a level one trauma unit but specialize in those areas.

And they BK story had me rolling, I could see it all like I was there, I bet that burger tasted damn good. Hoping for a speedy recovery for you and much better year ahead.
Thanks T aka Tom KR0MPS

Hope things are getting better. I have learned after sitting at the Univ Hosp ER to not go to a public hospital. Go where the homleess and indingents are not and you get quicker service, nicer attitudes and real care. We went to skyridge after Univ of Colo Med Center and the difference in all aspects of care was amazing

Vet surgeries are expensive, our dog just had a big tumor removed Friday with 17 staples on the outside and it was over $1500 and still counting.

Hope the rest of your year improves
