Sample text

We would normally have been cycling together except she had been racing this weekend. We chatted about her performance, which was a welcome change of subject, while waiting for the results of the tests. A doctor arrived. He informed me that I had what was regarded as serious injuries. These were later described in the hospital report as ‘lifechanging’. The test results confirmed a broken right clavicle, along with a broken pelvis and sacrum. I digested the information. He had made no mention of my spine or spinal damage.

15 14:51 CHAPTER 4: Hospital Food My right leg was extraordinarily painful to move millimetres, the hip flexor and adductor connecting to my hip were unable to support the heavy limb. However, the left leg demonstrated improved range and comparatively less pain. Pain came from all around the hips and my lower back as we worked through the simplest of exercises to move my feet centimetre by centimetre from side to side and lifting or bending the knees a few centimetres from the bed. The concentration levels required were immense, given the small movement produced.

In contrast to the effort and focus, the range of movement was minimal. I managed to gently tighten and relax my quads, which helped release some of the numbness caused by lying on my backside for hours. My left hamstring threatened to cramp, and I was quickly reminded the extreme pain levels were still there. I switched my attention to my lower back and shoulders, trying to slightly shift position in the bed to remove some of the pressure and discomfort from my hips. A weird tingling sensation emanated from my right side, presumably where my back and hips had met the road, cushioned only by my mobile phone.
