Jesus BKO or Allah if you are that way inclined. :D Two meters suks. I'm not going to say the normal, " you won't do that again will you?", because it seems the older you get, the more ladder work involved. Nor will I say, " you'll be more careful next time won't you", like as if you went out of your way to fall off the 1st time. I will however wish you a speedy recovery.

Very painful :shock:

Hope you get it sorted soon!

Yo. That sucks. I know a similar feeling. I tore the ligaments in my right ankle in early November and had to have those fixed up. Still not walking right to this day. Get well soon bud.

I wouldn't have your Quack sewing up my pants, that's a given. I don't think his talent lies in his screwing ability either. Hasn't he heard of drilling pilot holes so the screws go in straight. :shock: I imagine his talent is in his surgery skills and he didn't want to outsource maybe? :D
The screws and plate will be coming back out or are they there for good just to play havoc with the metal detectors at all the airport?.

Almost 4 weeks since surgery and incisions are barely visible even after only a week of having stitches removed :) .
