Some of you will know this already from Facebook, but that numpty @ColSonders has gone and fallen off his bike!

He's okay (bearing in mind it's him) but he has broken his ankle in a bad way, and done his wrist in. He's due to have an operation today, so will be back home in the next few days.

I'm sure you will all join me in mocking, sorry, wishing him a speedy recovery! No doubt he'll be back on BF4 as soon as he gets home. :)

Cheers chaps.

So i'm currently day four in the big broth.....erm in hospital.

I'll be going in for an operation soon to reassemble my ankle...phase one of becoming the terminator as i'm getting several bits of metal implanted :1thumbup:

To reassure everyone i've been in a considerable amount of pain at times and by the sounds of it might have ****ed up my chances of playing football for England...looking good for me never regaining full movement in my ankle.

On the downside I have a very sexy little minx of a physiotherapist coming tomorrow (watch this space as she gets replaced by some ****ing monstrosity) to put me through my paces, I wonder if she's single......


On a serious note though, my bike is pretty much fine, just superficial damage, I was in full bike gear so had very good protection and consider myself pretty lucky to have come away with a badly sprained wrist and a ****ed in ankle...trimaliola fracture.

Once i'm back home i'll post the video up and pictures (don't have a usable data signal here at the hospital) and i'll be back to my delightful self on BF4.

Make sure you put the open backed gown on back to front allowing your physio to get a peek at the good stuff.
I dont know why but I thought it was a push bike not a motorbike.
Personally I dont like motorbikes. Ive lost two friends to them and two are disabled. As fun as they riding, theyre just to dangerous and I have to admit I hope you get rid of it now.
Anyways, get well soon mate and have fun with all them lovely nurses.;)

Something in your text tells me that you are not totally bummed out by this...

Anyway I really hope that you will get well soon (@DrewePeacock is an complete arse now when he's in the lead :lol: ) and that your ankle will recover fully!

Sheers mate!!

@ColSonders What happened to Judy? Was she on the back of the bike? Was she flung into a bush where nobody could see her? Is she still there?

Get well soon. Oh and I am watching the media page with interest ( and popcorn ), I am all face booked up and ready to share.

So never mind playing for England, which wrist was it ?, will you still be able to w**k for England?

I think I stumbled upon some footage. Note that this was his successful parking attempt though, not the failed one:
(in spoiler tags because continuous animated gifs are annoying :))

Judy, Julie, I wasn't really listening.
Julia actually.

*update

Day 5 in the big brother house.

I've finally got a gorgeous nurse coming on shift!...bonus

Had my op today, 4 hours in theatre and I actually don't know the details yet as once I got back on the ward my pain levels went through the roof and I got rushed down for an emergency back slab (pot with an open front) cos none of the meds they threw at me were doing anything...turned out my bandage was way too tight and as soon as they cut it off I was fine.

So I'm on the mend, should see a physiotherapist tomorrow, albeit not the little hotty I was hoping for and possibly home tomorrow evening or wednesday.

Given the movement I had while my bandages were off I should be able to bike again, i'll have a couple of sexy scars and 'think' i've got two metal plates screwed into my ankle so airport security will constantly think i'm trying to smuggle a knife and I may well end up setting off shop burglar sensors with it.

Can't wait to get back home but i'll leave you with this little upload

They could have at least shaved your entire leg!

Was the pizza you were delivering damaged at all? Or did it survive and was delivered within 30 mins piping hot?

Hope you have a speedy recovery Col. On the bright side, plenty of games coming out soon to help pass the time.
