Posted:Sorry to hear about you accident mate...hope all goes well and you have a swift recovery.

My guess as to the leg arm thing is that you have torn the ligaments in your knee, so while you could walk on it if you twisted it again there would be nothing to keep it in place. As for the elbow...if it was in a cast you would end up with it getting "frozen", and would have to go through a sh#t load of physio to get full use. I may be completely wrong, but at least you have one good arm to drink with.

Have fun

Posted:well, i thought that if it was dislocated then they could pop it back in there and then, but apparently it was so badly dislocated that i had to go in! bugger.

you could see my knee on the side of my leg! and a shadow on the video where it went to! but i think the pain was so bad that it went numb after a bit! im getting there......
