pillar, to be precise, the local government in order to avoid cars on its roads, set up a few thick concrete pillars in the middle of the road, the weather was hot, I rode a bike to observe the code data, did not notice, the result hit head on, in fact, I lost consciousness on the spot, according to the people who passed, I may half a minute to regain consciousness, I now have almost no memory of that time, the helmet is very good protection, although the damage The helmet protected me well, although damaged, due to the ground a lot of gravel, face and ear surface injury serious, also went to the hospital stitches, the neck feels a little painful to turn around, do not know where to hurt, the body bones should be fine, I can move my limbs, really bad day
I am not a doctor, but I believe that these are all strong indicators of a brain injury. Please make sure you see a doctor to ensure you don’t have a brain bleed or any other trauma to your brain!
Indeed with a history of loss of consciousness and retrograde amnesia they really should have done a brain scan or at least send OP home with a waking advice
Incidentally in the Netherlands more cyclists are seriously hurt crashing into these bollards than by cars!
Ouch I’m glad you are still with us and I hope you heal well and if you haven’t already see a doc!
I dont know the full details of what post my mate hit 13years ago but he wasn’t as lucky
I’m so sorry! I hope you get good help from your doctors and heal quickly.
Heal quickly and fully….really sorry to hear this. Please pay attention to any symptoms ove the next few days.
So sorry to hear this @Hugh_Laurie. Similar thing happened to me about 7 years ago. Hit a bollard with this result to my bike (rip) and was found unconscious some time later. But for my helmet who knows what shape I would have been in. Flown to trauma center (still no memory of this) for treatment and admitted to hospital overnight with 12 stitches in my upper lip and a colossal concussion…took a solid year to feel back to normal again. This stuff is no joke. PLEASE seek out a traumatic brain injury provider and take care of yourself. Will be thinking of you.
First of all, thanks for all the enthusiastic help on the post, I just got back from the hospital, the good news is that there is no concussion problem, the bad news is that the doctor found that my left clavicle is fractured
Overall, my massive injuries were to my left upper limb, especially my face, glasses and helmet both damaged, rear wheelset offset, I checked the yardstick data at the time and hit the post at 20km/h, during the climb.
I can tolerate the pain, I am now more worried about how to go to work and not to leave scars on my face, because I had stitches.
When did you start to resume training?
Oh my God, I’m sorry about that, cycling can be so dangerous sometimes
