Pedestrian vs Vehicle

Postby DaeFenris on Thu Jan 08, 2009 6:12 pm

I got hit by a car last nite while crossing the street, in a crosswalk. The woman was taking a left turn, so she was luckily not going very fast. I rolled up the hood of the car, hit the windshield, and then slid back down. Landed pretty hard on my knee.

Other than some bumps, bruises, and scratches I'm ok. I'm reaaaaally sore though. Going to get a doctor's appointment to get a thorough checkout, but the doctors at the ER said everything looked ok.

Ouch that's got to hurt. A friend of mine crushed a disc in the back when she was hit by a car, although that one was going rather fast as I've understood it.

And from various crashes, I know that you get a certain feeling of mortality for a while after something like that happens. Good to hear you didn't get badly hurt.

I've only been run over once, by a car in reverse :P
...Been in a fair few car accidents though. Seatbelts is the Shit.

At least that's my thoughts nowadays, since all of the accidents happened when I wasn't wearing one :roll:

But anyway, Stay on Topic!! - Who won?

After an emergency visit (read: I called my doctor because I was concerned so she said just come in today for the follow-up instead of Friday) because my arm was hurting. After lots of stretching, pushing, pulling, being hit with a reflex hammer thingy, and having two doctors examine me it appears I have a minor tear on my right rotator cuff (it's a muscle group in the shoulder used to keep my arm attached!)

It hurts when I do certain movements, but will heal over time. Since it's minor it should be fine in a few weeks as long as I don't use it too much and I continue with my therapeutic exercises.

Aww, that sucks hun. But at least it's minor. My ex *mumbles* had that but it is major and a few doctors have even said that surgery is not a guarantee for it to be better.

Keep doing your exercises! It's well worth it! Feel better <3

*eyeshifts* Um... Are you certain that the injury is from the accident? Not some sort of single-handed strain from excessive...exercises with your right arm? :roll:

No, just kidding. Take it easy with the therapy, I know how easy it is to disregard the physicians' advice to use the wimpy weights they want you to use and load up a little more... (which is a mistake, trust me :P )

Pedestrian 0 - Vehicle 1?
