So I've been off the board for 3+ weeks because I've been having pain in my knee joints- like they are filled with acid or broken glass.

Finally saw a doctor who said I've got the start of arthritis and cartilage thinning. Also have a torn meniscus and MCL but not bad enough to do anything about. Her advice was exercises and taking it easy when possible.

Bummed that I'm looking forward towards a more painful future and I'm probably going to be skating less - although I think i might get a little session tomorrow.

I've had meniscus trouble since I was 18 (4 surgeries to date) and my only advice is go biking.
basically my doc told me: don't jog, avoid running, avoid walking too much. Then when I asked can I bike? He said you MUST bike!

Just got back into skating a lot more recently. I was skating the Kyle Walkers and no back pain or knee pain and everything was good. Switched to the Cory Kennedys and after about a hour of skating I had a weird pain in my lower back. Didn't land weird or anything just all of a sudden started to hurt. Been about a week and been taking it easy and it's slowly going away. Just not sure what the hell happened. Noticed vulcs were giving me knee pain too so I knew I shouldn't of skated them.

How old is old? Cuz I'm only 28 but my body is old. I gained about 50 lbs when I got clean two years ago, I've torn ligaments in both my ankles, and I have a recurring pinched nerve in my shoulder blade and my pinkie finger has been numb for about 2 weeks. I'm feelin' it and I'm worried life is going to physically suck exponentially over time.

I wouldn't even try to aquire an elephant that would be mad selfish I don't have the means to give him a comfortable life

Not old just shitty but in a few more years you'll be old AND shitty and then it's your time to shine

you could start a thread called 'babyshambles' for people who aren't old but they've already gone to shit. eat more kale and stretch, in 22 more yrs you can quit skating and go back to being a junkbomb. that is unless tony hawk raises the retirement age again between now and then.
believe me, i'm counting down the days. 9.5 more yrs and i can have a cigarette and drink and not have elbow scabs ever again.

This summer was a tough one for me, had some mental health issues and it fucked up my digestive system, causing my body to freak out and make my stomach in a constant state of distress.
Been skating a bunch though, feels good to be back on board full time.
Definitely learned to appreciate every day!

How tf is Mike Carroll still ollie'ing huge gaps? He so old. My 30 year old knees can barely take an ollie on flat. Pretty much can't ollie anymore without immediate pain and mental note of: "Yeah let's not do that." 12 months ago I was ollie'ing no problem over sh*t. What happened!!? Each added year takes a giant toll, damn.

Haven't skated in about 6 weeks. Saw an orthopedic and have gotten an MRI. I have a bucket handle meniscus tear. Surgery is an option, but not haven't gotten it yet.

I can roll around and sort of ollie since I am regular and I hurt my left knee again. After getting ACL reconstruction on the same knee in 2006. Haven't tried a kickflip, but when I flex it and extend it, there's some pain. When I bent down and "tried" nollie/switch ollie. My knee tightens up and has little to no feeling.

For now, I just do knee exercises and walk for exercise.

Hell yeah dave! couldn't make it out on my phone screen but it looks good in the bigger window.

That garage TF clip with the no comply onto the steep ramp from the other day got me off my ass and on my board.

That bank is a sign tipped over.
A friend wallied into it years ago and I just randomly ended up trying it and the no comply over and into it worked.

You wanna get that numb pinkie finger checked out stat. Numbness in that side of the hand is your ulnar nerve aka your funny bone. Sounds like it got pinched fer sure but when you have numbness you have a limited window for getting the feeling back (around 6 months.) Worst case scenario they just cut you open and move the nerve over a bit. It's honestly a pretty minor operation. You go under but you're home after it's all over and the recoup time is minimal. I had it done about 7 years ago and I only missed 1 day of work.

Fuck that shit. I'm 40+. I'm not dropping off anything higher than a loading dock and I won't be doing anything that involves a board flipping and shoving down it. Maybe shuv it heelfips because I've never been afraid to get wrecked trying those. Also skating like 20 times a year you only have so much confidence and that is what is needed for any gaps and shit like that. My buddy is like 45 is still has pop. I'm jealous. Must be his martial arts training or something. I never know how my legs will work each time I go out. I have more problems with distances than height now. It's a mind fuck to me. Like ollie a a cone or something a certain height no problem. Make it a bench or something with width the same height I get all sketched out and it's not even much wider lol

gotta give you props again Dave! saturday I managed to land a straight no comply down a curb, a first for me so I was stoked, but doing it on a real stair set seems not easy at all....

also I've been using my Zig Zagger cruiser to go to my coworking place recently and it's so fun. Best way to start the day, it's a 15 min downhill ride from my place, I just have to watch out not to crash with my laptop in my backpack! any of you guys commute with a useless wooden toy?

Yeah, I tried to do the skater/office worker combo once and trashed my laptop. I rolled kinda parallel to a big crack and back wheel caught..

I used to do the skate/tube combo
To work but now I just ride a bike. Two weeks after I got I new laptop I hit a slick patch on the road and went ass over tits with the laptop in my back pack but luckily it's one of those titanium MacBooks and I have a soft case for it so all it got was a little ding on it. Was a little bummed but it could have been much worse.

haha mine were probably 45mm 101. I was using my regular setup for everything so I went proper flying and landed into swimming position with the laptop under my belly (helped me skid a bit longer)

Long time lurker first time poster. 45 turning 46 in a month. Been skating since 1985, died down a little in the 90s after I lost my sponsors and went to art school. Picked it up seriously again in late 90s until the mid 2000s. Last 6 years have been at it again.  Now last month I fell like a stone to my hip and cracked the femural neck at my hip. Basic broken hip and I got three screws. Doctor said today I should never skateboard again. The screws are in for life and if I wreck them I am in trouble.  At the moment I am just working on walking again let alone skating but this was some harsh news. Anyone ever get this sort of advice from a doctor?

Harsh indeed. I can offer nothing other than sympathy and hope that you can at the very least roll again.

Thanks... I just hope I can still do rock and rolls and grinds in a bowl again (me in the IG video) Nothing more than that is needed. I can be chill and stay within my ability.  I think I just have to be more careful and be in touch with my condition physically a little more. I was tired and stiff when I fell so hard. I suppose, In future I have to be more cautious but also more aware of energy levels.I dont want to stop skating bowls!

man...this tops the plaza in terms of weird places I bump into ya.....

You're a natural and you'll get there.....Raimondo shattered his pelvis and he was 50 or something and he recovered....lots of physio though....

Get well soon....hopefully poking around on the Internet keeps you motivated......
