I can't believe you rode your bike- and I'm glad you made it safely to the ER.
That looks like it will be a pretty good scar.
Yikes - what an account... I agree, you had little business riding after that head wallop. You are the man!

Like I said, the ER is 1 mile up the road. Was it the best choice? Probably not, but all things considered, it was the most prudent to maintain the security of the documents in my bike and keep my bike from being stolen in the process.

Had the CT scan identified a problem and I was admitted, my wife has a list of people to call to pick up the bike and take it home... That convenience store was NOT the place to leave the bike and he hauled off in an ambulance. Trust me that I know this neighborhood that people WILL take advantage of a bad situation.

Well it is good that the bike is ok and the documents are secure. As far as you go, that looks like a nasty whack on the back of your head. Take everything very slowly. Head injury's are not to be taken lightly.

My wife had a fall similarly to yours and we had to watch her for several days to make sure she was gonna be ok.

As an update: I stayed home from work for three days... then went back... as my job is administrative more than physical.

This is how big the lump was:



Before they stapled it up:



Went back on the Thursday, yes, on my bike. (Don't have a cage, sold them all a couple months back since I wasn't using them)

Follow up with my doc, says see you in a week... then two weeks, and every two weeks since. Staples are out...

Neurologists, Earliest apt is October 24th. As this is a third party claim lots of docs wont touch it for fear of being subpoenaed for court... WTF?

In the meantime, no pain meds (alcohol excluded) until the neurologist can see me.

Migraines nuts enough to close my eyes involuntarily... these really suck, but I have found that Salonpas cut into 3/4" squares over each temple seems to help the symptoms and makes them tolerable.

After week 3, (3rd visit) doc says.. "I know you're not gonna like this, but with the equilibrium issues, and everything else, buy yourself a cage (car) to get yourself through this time. He about died from the evil stare, but I knew he was right. So off to the classifieds it was... I thought about a little car... nothing I liked. (yeah, I'm a picky (and cheap) bastard.

I finally decide I'll buy an older truck in good shape.

This is what I found... I had garnished the nickname "project therapy"






So, since I cant ride my bike, a call to Fullsac went out and a stage II setup is enroute... Thanks Steve and Cammie!

Even if I cant ride it It'll be ready for me when I can!

Speedy recovery wishes. Trucks come in handy from time to time. Looks like the previous owner on that took real good care of it.

Its been 4 months... it took almost 3 just to get to see the Neurologist (There is a shortage of Neurologists in Hawaii and the whole third party claim issue had people running scared.)

So, after all of this.. MRI indicates no bleeding in the brain. I have a healthy, "normal" (haha) 48 year old male brain.

Vestibular therapy has been ordered to help correct this.

SO far, no rhyme or reason to the onset of the dizziness, nausea, headaches. The migraines are under control with meds.

Still under orders to not ride the bike...  :soapbox:

Now looking for a second Neurologist for second opinion.

I've been able to get on the bike for short rides but the migraines simply do not go away with enough consistency to ride regularly.

Dont like the migraine meds (will medical marijuana help?)  :cherry:

Happy Easter!

Weed will help any situation, but your head will still hurt.
