And it feels wonderful as well... Shattered mine into 4 pieces, butterfly, non-union fracture, after high siding my motorcycle at about 60mph and having my leg fold under me when I came down to earth. Have a titanium rod running from knee to hip still holding it together 12 years later; had four massive bolts removed after a year. That leg's never been the same since.

My one piece of advice to anyone that suffers this injury. If the paramedics use the words 'traction splint', do your best to pass out.
