Sounds like you and Jon should keep well away from mountains and winged transport for a while ;o)It took me a couple of years to get anywhere near full use of my left leg after my accident, but I considered myself extremely lucky to have survived a very serious accident. I'll never forget the skills and care of the emergency services, though I do remember getting rather annoyed with the policemen who kept asking me my name and address as I lay trapped and in major pain. Presumably checking that I was still conscious, but seriously threatening my sanity, in the circumstances!Hope you make a fully recovery before too long and that your lucky star keeps shining for you.

To answer Bigsister, Jon and I were taken to Ft william and then i went on to Inverness and Newcastle hospitals. I was inside until July that year then in and out until around sept 07 with a left leg that wasnt healing until we put it in an Ilizarov frame for 6 months. I got back to fulltime air ambulance work in december 07, did 22 shifts then had a nasty microlight crash on dec 30th 07!!!So mr Lucky is now recovering form a pile of broken bones from that escapade. Just starting to hobble around on crutches. banned from anything more dangerous than knitting with round needles. Jon was also with me in that crash and gets his back to work interview next week. cheers.

Wed 06 Aug 2008 00:26:07 GMT+1 Big Sister http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2008/08/gore.shtml?page=0#comment0 Fascinating report. I was rather surprised that there was a questionmark over the economics of the technology, however, since it could be applied across the world and thus could potentially have a very large market.The description of the climber's injuries brought back to mind a serious injury I sustained some years ago, due to an accident I was very lucky to survive. Seeing a limb in an unaccustomed position is, to say the least, unnerving. What the report didn't tell us (unless I wasn't listening hard enough) was the rescue and current circumstances of the person interviewed, which left me feeling, well, hanging off a cliff edge ...
