My Accident!

Recommended Posts

Slipped and fell down the bank at our moorings, may have broken bones in left ankle. Ankle certainly at a strange angle! Thanks to two coastguard teams who attended originally before the ambulance arrived. Got me splinted and into the dry. Some had left work to answer the call, one is a BA ranger and another works for BA. Thanks to everyone, I am now in James Paget hospital waiting for their verdict.

Ouch! Wishing you a speedy recovery, hope you haven't done too much damage.

I think the bank is ok. Everybody seems to think I should be writhing in agony but as long it is still and nobody touches it it really isn't too bad. My wife says " no sense-no feeling"

Hope you get sorted out soon and on the road to recovery. It’s not weather for being out and about now. We’re not far from JPH. Pouring with rain and blowing a gale. 

Hope anyone else afloat is safely moored up.

You made the Bacton Coastguard page! Not sure that's a consolation though :12_slight_smile:

Now resident in private room! They've set the bones back together then tomorrow another op to put a supporting plate in. Hoping to be able to travel back to London at the end of the week for the wedding of one of our sons. Just have to play each day as they come. Once X-rays were done I have had excellent treatment . Thanks for all the good wishes.

Just catching up, really sorry to hear about your accident. We can empathise, Mrs N broke her ankle in Wroxham while on holiday a couple of years ago. They did a great job at the N and N and she made a full recovery and was soon up and about again. I'm sure you'll be fine. Will be thinking of you.

My goodness, that bank has a lot to answer for! I do hope you are able to get to the wedding at the end of the week. I reckon somehow you’ll find a way though.

"snap" .... I broke my ankle 6 months ago. I now have 2 titanium screws in place. All on the mend now as I'm sure yours will be.

Tell them you'll be hopping mad if you can't get to the wedding.

All the best

Chin up, fingers crossed. You can be star guest in a wheel chair if you can’t walk on it.
