I'm not sure that they actually had the break pinned surgically - can't recall seeing the info mentioned in accounts of their crashes.
I hope your recovery is going well.
I think you know that I had my hip hardware removed 5 weeks ago. I'm still recovering from the latest surgery and can't definitively say that the hip is better than it was before the hardware was removed. I didn't realize how much time these injuries/surgeries take to heal.
I can't speak to Floyd or Levi, but a racing buddy of mine dropped his road bike during the 04 season and broke his hip... including chippin a bone on the left side.... and while he was off his bike for 5 weeks (doc told him at least 8 weeks, but he's addicted like most of us) he rode lightly for 2 weeks and then on the 7th week started to "train" again. not just ride.
But he still has a pair of screws in his hip and will for the rest of his life...
