open topic, for anything cycling related.
So currently lying here in a consulting room with a bunch of gauze and gel up my bum.
Had a mishap on my ride this morning and tore my ring hole. Waiting to hear back from the surgeon as to whether I have damaged the rectum muscle as well. If so I will be going in for surgery, if not they will just stitch me up.
The drugs are good.

Sloth is funny/nasty.
Skull is...unfortunate. But fortunate that the only thing remaining in his sphincter is gel soaked gauze - part of a bicycle or roadside landscape would be slightly more ouch.
Ours is not to reason why...merely to point and giggle
sorry to hear about that skull, hope you recover quickly.
however, you are WRONG about hospitals being boring. have a look around you - there is always entertainment - people in backless hospital gowns checking themselves out to find some smokes, drug addicts who keep asking if the doctor is ready to see them every 45 seconds..
feel for your pain....
can I suggest you stay away from solids for a while...maybe a liquid diet would be most appropriate at this time...and I reckon you will need a rubber ring to help out with your ring of fire too
Had to wait in a hospital for seven hours with a finger which was broken and had been dislocated... at least I had a newspaper to read...
Skull - your injury sounds painful ... at the same time (I'm sorry) I had to laugh a little... Heal well!
The clamp that clamps the seat onto the post failed.
I was sitting up as it snapped, seat came off and I went straight down the post and landed on the tyre. Bike was moving and I wedgied myself with the wheel. Pretty much left butt check on one side, tyre running along the butt groove, the right butt cheek the other side
Obviously the spinning wheel on my butt hole ripped it open. Wife collected me, I was just going to have shower and clean it up but when I git home there was a lot of blood and things didn't feel right down there.
I am going in for surgery now too. Is a 3cm tear and then they want to make sure there is no internal damage. Need to have me under a general to do that.
Worse case is damaged rectum and scfincta which could mean a colostumy bag till the internal damage has healed. Best case (fingers crossed) is just stitches and a sore arse for a few weeks.

Hope the surgery goes well Skull and the outcome is positive.
This brings back memories from a few decades ago when I was riding my BMX and my seat stem broke and I fell onto my rear wheel and the "nether regions" were jammed between the wheel and the brakes as the bike came to a screeching halt on the gravel.
Thankfully no damage to myself (those Faberge jeans must have done their job)...but perhaps this explain why my Wife and I had twins all those years later ?!?
Anyway, after reading this I am off to check my seat clamp!

Could have been worse, but only just....
That's right up there for painful and unfortunate injuries!!
I think the indignity of checking yourself in to A&E would have been terrible too....

Truly awful injury - hope its not as scary as the doc's speculation.
Broken seat clamp bolts seem to be common enough to justify the question:
why are so many seat clamp's attached with just one bolt ?
Heal well !

I only got one thing to say... FAMILY FORUM AND APPROPRIATE LANGUAGE.
Well 2 things, hope u don't need a temporary colostomy and that your sphincter muscle is intact... Heal well...
