Default Broke my leg

Notice the 1/2 inch wide x 3 inch long break at the top right of the larger lower bone. Had to have a titanium plate and 10 screws attached along with partial cadaver bone implant. As the Dr said "you really did a number on your leg". You can't fix stupid but my Dr is trying

That's where the stupid part comes in. I was racing my quad against a dirt bike. Trying to power slide through a turn when the quad gripped and rolled to my left. I stupidly planted my left leg down in an effort to keep the quad from rolling which I did keep the quad on 4 wheels. However the impact of planting my foot combined with the weight of the quad against my tibia resulted in this. I'm an idiot I know.

If my stepson would have purchased a go pro when we planned there would have been video. We didn't get it ordered in time but we now have one. Lol
