'Is waiting to be operated on'......a day or is that 2 days after the crash :? I thought a broken leg would or should be operated on ASAP (as was in Rossi's case). Is this our really sad state of the UK NHS :? With the greatest respect to Martin what went wrong here :? Did he have adequate insurance :? I am baffled here. Having said this I wish you the very best Martin and a good recovery :) Keep those spirits up :blush:

John..They might not be able to operate until the swelling goes down..Or for a number of other reasons.. Think thread should be about wishing Martin a speedy recovery..Not about apportioning blame.. With that in mind get well soon Martin.. Nobody no matter how partizan likes to see anybody get injured..

get well soon, was really bad luck, this season has been going great.

John, a day or two isn't long to wait, they've probably had to do CT scans and stuff to plan the op, I had to wait nearly a week for my operation when I broke my leg

I watched the ITV highlights last night and I can only say that Mallory PArk has become a joke of a circuit. I dont ever remember seeing a race with so many stupid crashes caused by all the stop start chicanes. You only have to look at all the gouge marks on the track on the exit of the chicanse to know how many bikes get thrown up the road. Absolutely ridiculous and if they dont think the original layout was safe they should have just called it a day at Mallory.

I happen to work in said hospital, and am too amazed that his tibia hasn't been nailed yet! The fact is that the government have set guidelines for certain operations that have to be done within a certain timeframe. If that doesn't happen then the patient will breech and the trust will get fined! I think (Know!) unfortunately for Martin this is what has happened. If he had broken his leg the week before then he would've been operated on the next day as we were unusually quiet! That's just the way it is in theatres :? I hope that the operation goes well for him later, and that he's back on the Ducati soon :)
