Re: Guys take care


**** that's no good about results!! how many weeks you thinking ?
I know a guy who was out for over 2 years actually it was the guy who taught. Me everything worth knowing about gyprockin. He used to use wooden planks on his a frames until one day the builders son ( a chippe ) used his plank for a cutting bench whist he wasn't there. Put the plank back on the frames not realising he cut into the plank a bit and put the cuts facing Down. Well you can imagine what happend to old mate when he hoped on his 12 ft a frames and walked to centre of plank ... Fell down on ankle snapped out through his leg and was out for over 2 years and because he had a big holiday the year before the insurance would only pay him what he earn to. The last tax year !!

Re: Guys take care


Thats not good Aaron. I have had sickness and accident insurance for many years, I have never made a claim but I would not be without it. Hope you have a speedy recovery. Do your homework before going down the surgery path. You hear some horror stories. Not saying that you dont need it just do your research.

Re: Guys take care


Remember to be grateful for what you still have. It's tuff but stay positive. I tore my ICL in soccer my sophomore year. It was a partial tear so no surgery. Remember to allow plenty of time to heal and don't push it. You'll run the risk of being out longer. Accidents happen. Don't be too hard on yourself. I'm sending good energy your way.
