Hi every body,
My name's Lee. I'm new to the group,originally from Leeds but now live in SW London.
Had my accident in Sheffield in 1997 [motor cycle RTA] pretty messed up at the time but almost as good as it gets now.
Had tendon transfers and muscle grafts to left tbpi. Got a bit of movement now and strength is building up, now got muscle regrowth in withered left arm, coooool or what ? All broken bones repaired and healed except left clavicle, still a non union but hey I can live with that no worries.
All surgery to my arm done by Mr. Kay at St.James' in Leeds decent bloke comes across a bit eccentric but knows his onions and is a straight talking surgeon no Bull s##t.
Not back at work or anything but just got a computer and I'm learning basic IT so who knows. Lost my job obviously not much call for one armed mobile heavy goods fitters and dont know much about anything else.
I think that I've got to grips with my disability and dont find it as difficult to cope with now, although I went through a really bad spell and was on lots of different AD's that left me off my face and zombiefied, no longer on them but they did help at the time.
Any way feel free to ask any questions to me and if I can answer them I will look forward to getting to know you all if thats possible?Thanx.
