Glad you are okay, what a story and experience.

What were the "torture discs" you said were removed?

How did they correct the peritonitis?

Looks like you have a 14 pack abs!

I don't want to go on your diet plan. Lose 65 pounds in 30 days!

Thanks for all the comments fellow advers. I appreciate the props from other riders, it re-inspires me to keep living as much as I can.

In response to scooteraug02 the torture devices (not their technical name) were used because that incision had already been stapled closed when they removed my spleen. After the peritonitis my internal organs were swollen so they had to use those devices to seal me back up as they couldn't really do it again with staples. The problem with them is that the string that you can see in the front goes completely through your stomach muscles. As I started to eat and regain a little weight over the six weeks they were in, they began slowly cutting into me, not very pleasant I can assure you. They cured the peritonitis by keeping that incision open with a football shaped piece of plastic, with me in a medically induced coma, and using a combination of negative pressure suction things and a daily washing of my internal organs. Three days of that and I was right as rain. I agree on the diet plan, even when I hit almost a hundred pounds heavier than that discharge weight.

Some pics of the unstoppable svflyer taken in the last few days.

There is no end to his desire of trying new kinds of riding.

Holy COW svflyer!!! That was amazing, your accident and your recovery. Thanks for sharing.

I had to tell my wife about your accident tonight. She was commenting on how you never know what will happen in life and I told her about your accident as an example of you never know.

Your accident location also hits home, I'm sure I've driven on that ramp in the past. Maybe it's just me but I never liked that huge interchange and bridge system they had there.

I'm glad to hear you are still adventuring.

I am glad you are still here to have new experiences. I don't post much, but this thread is is a fine example of the reason I read ADVRider. May your journey continue for a very long time...

I do wonder - did you bounce or just crumple?
