Recently, Robbie Johns, was in a horrible motorcycle accident on the evening of Wednesday, February 21st. Thankfully, Robbie survived the accident, but he suffered several injuries as a result including:
- His L2 disc was ruptured
- He suffered a compound fracture of the tibia/fibula
- His ankle socket was shattered.
As a result of his multiple injuries, Robbie needed immediate back and leg surgery. The doctors put two screws in his back to fuse L1-L3 and he has another screw in his ankle and a synthetic plate for the bone to grow back to since it was shattered. He is non-weight bearing for 6 weeks on his leg and is not allowed to twist, bend, or pick up anything more than 5 pounds.
Robbie was in the hospital for a total of five days and sent home early because his medical insurance did not cover the in-home rehab at the hospital. He has now been home for just over a week and has had one in-home physical therapy session. He is covered for up to 60 visits for the calendar year but has a copay of $40 per visit. Robbie did have a few doctors that were out of network, but he is hoping since this was an emergency that the insurance will cover it. The doctors put Robbie on disability and said the minimum amount of time they give off is two months. He should know more after his check-ups to see if that will be extended or if he is, in fact, able to go back to work.
Robbie has had a very positive spirit throughout his surgeries and physical therapy and wants to get back to work and his normal life as soon as possible. The doctor said a full recovery will be anywhere from a year to a year and a half. However, one doctor told Robbie he will experience pain for the rest of his life as a result of his injuries.
Robbie has been an active participant in volunteering with the OC Rescue Mission and Meals on Wheels. Below are a couple pictures of recent volunteer events where we've had the opportunity to catch Robbie in action.
