My Versys HURT me yesterday!
Geez, this is embarassing! I was moving the bike to clean the garage when my little dog got under my feet. Next thing I know I'm tipping over and can't save it. The bike fell on my foot and naturally I screamed! Not in pain so much as for the bike! I picked it up and checked everything. A bent shifter, scratched bar end and left side case. DAMN IT! I've had the bike a few weeks and I've already scratched it...
I get my tools out and straighten the shifter. Now I'm starting to notice some pain in my foot. I figured I broke a toe like I have several times in the past. No need to go to the hospital because all they'll do is tape it up.
Well, I pull off my my shoe and sock and I don't like what I see. First I see blood and my second toe is pointing the wrong way. Crap, it hurts but not that bad - it was numb.
Long story short, I sustained an open dislocation. What is that? Well, I was show and tell at the hospital because no one had ever seen one before. Basically, the toe was dislocated and the bone was sticking out. No broken bone, but the joint was poking out through the skin.
They shot me up, pulled like crazy to reset the toe then used 6-7 stitches to close it up where the bone protruded. When I went home, the foot was still numb. Today however, I am in terrible pain! Just got back with pain pills and I'm waiting for them to kick in.
The second pic is after they reset the toe.
