    Paul George is indeed out of surgery & anyone who loves bkb should rest a little easy: I'm told everything went well. No new damage found.

    Next hurdle is making sure the bone heals correctly, if the surgery was indeed fairly straight forward that should be simple enough. What a night. I'm going to bed

    Peck, and anyone else who cares to see: I still managed to keep images of a couple of my initial pre-op X-Rays.

    They are X-Ray images, but not for the squeamish.

    Spoiler Spoiler:

    Ugh, those are really more of a ***** because that is above the midshaft point therefor traction would not only not be helpful it would be contraindicated. Hopefully you were not allergic to Opiates.

    It doesn't surprise me though that your coach thought that because most femur fractures actually present as a "charlie horse". In fact that to me is often a field test I do to determine if one is really present. Right at the site of the fracture they often times have knots build up as large as a soft ball. I see that on a closed fx. and I'm pretty confident that they have a fx.

    I'm sure you can also let everyone else know that one of the dangers of any type of open fracture is the post op infections that can occur.

    I do believe your story because odd falls cause odd injury's. Thanks for sharing.

    Yeah, I did get a relatively minor (thank God) infection. I mean, I had a scar about a foot and a half long, so it's not terribly surprising.

    But yeah, what you said about the 'charlie horse' is spot on.

    The fact that I didn't get an ambulance and proper medical support to me immediately and instead had non-medical personnel clumsily attempting to transport me in a very slow fashion in civilian vehicles is actually a pretty big part of the reason why my injury and recovery were so complicated. Which really sucks, but hey, people make mistakes right? Sometimes they're just BIG mistakes. Big, honest mistakes...

    But yes, as I am sure you're aware, my fracture was in literally the worst possible position (or so I've been told)

    You were told correct. There is no good way to splint that, no real pain relief that can be given for that and at 14 you still had to worry about the growth plate being effected. The only solution is surgery and lots and lots of therapy which as you can attest still doesn't cure the issue.

    If it's any consolation, Paul's injury is nowhere near as bad as yours was. I had a 12 year old bike rider blow out his tib/fib and 6 months later I was picking him up again but this time for a fracture humerus. Now bike riding is not basketball but the recovery time is similar.

    See everyone, there's your optimism for the day!!!

    I've done my duty as a Pacers fan, and now it's time to try to sleep, although I don't anticipate having much success.

    i just searched it on youtube, one of the thumbnails was enough to make me sick to my stomach.

    i hope he gets well. that's all i'm thinking right now.

    I had the same break. I was blessed enough to be taken care of by some great surgeons at Methodist downtown. I have a titanium rod and screws in my ankle and knee. I was back at work (physical labor) in 3 months and almost pain-free in 5 months. I'm not trying to figure out a time table for PG or anything. But I will say that since I can relate a little, I have no fears that this is career-ending. I wouldn't be surprised to see him back late in the season. I'm quite sure he's even tougher than me (and that's saying a lot ; ).

    I'm extremely happy to hear that this may not be nearly as bad as it looks. Because it looks absolutely horrid.

    It will be cool when he makes his comeback in #13. A rebirth for PG.
    What an odd, sad and ironic twist that he talks about changing his number to 13, considered to be an unlucky number, and then this incredibly unlucky thing happens to him. So sad.

    I happened upon an uncensored still of the break as it happened. That hit to the pit of my stomach. Praying for PG to make a full recovery. It's one of those things where you wake up the next day and hope everything was just a really, really bad dream.

    I honestly see no connection as we've never seen Paul wear 13. Besides, there are a decent amount of talented players who wear it. Marino, T.Y. Hilton, Steve Nash and James Harden immediately come to mind.

    Just a statement about how ironic it is. Not trying to make a serious superstitious connection or anything.

    Probably a large hematoma forming at the fracture site.
