suffered a similar fate 18 months ago, over the bars - smashed up full face helmet, bleed in neck, fractured vertebrae in mddle back,numbness down the right hand side of body, to my luck no halo needed, but enough to thank god im still alive and walking. Still see the physio weekly and panadene forte is my best friend......
Mate I wish you all the best and I hope your recovery is speedy and trouble free.
I bet you cant wait to get that halo off your head !!!
