Really sorry to hear this Sankar. Hats off to your courage and determination. Am sure you would be able to walk soon with similar dedication.

A small note from my side to help you in your rehablitation. My grandmom fell down in the bathroom when she was about 70 and had to undergo a Hip replacement operation. Even though we were sceptical about how much recovery would she have, with willpower she managed to continue her physiotherapy long after she got discharged from the hospital, started walking on her own with some support in the form of a walking stick and continued to walk till she passed away a couple of years back. So much so you could see her exercising her legs back and forth even when she was watching TV by instinct. The key is doing your physiotherapy religiously once you come back home.

All our wishes and prayers would support you in your efforts to get your Second life kickstarted soon.

Scary incident but you were lucky that you got treatment on time even though it was bit late but thanks god that nothing went wrong.
I have lost my friend in Pune in 2004 no major injuries just his broken jaws blood went inside lungs and delay in treatment took him away from us.

This is really shocking and shook me up when I read about it. Where did this incident happen? From the looks of it, I think it happened in Bangalore? (the reason I ask is you mentioned KIMS and your location says TVM)

I wish you a speedy recovery and do hope that the accused is brought to book.

Cheers,
gpa

Sankar,

JK called and told me about it when it happened. He updated me during his hospital visit after the operation. All I can say is that you should start switching over to cars as much as possible. India is a very unsafe country for 2-wheelers.

Glad to know that you're getting back to normal.

Man, this is quite scary and thank god and your friends and all others for taking you to KIMS in time. I really like your attitude and wish you a speedy recovery. Cheers man.

Hope the drive and Hotel Leela will be made to pay for this.

+1 to that. Make sure you continue your physiotherapy as many of us tend to neglect/reduce it after the initial stages.

Get well soon pal. A 6 hour op is not a joke. The situation am sure would've been very scary for your folks with 10 days in the ICU and quite enduring to hold up during this kind of a situation. It is indeed a second life since you have to start walking from the beginning again.

Good to hear that you are able to sit up and move your legs. Keep up your high spirit & cheer and you would be able to make it to normal soon. Appreciate you writing your accident on TBHP and am sure TBHP is giving you some support to kill the boring times in the ward. And dont compromise on the physiotherapy sessions for unwanted reasons
