We will definitely be getting second opinions. Since we'll be above the deductible and coinsurance maximum, even the top specialists will be "free of charge."
Wow...that's quite an article!

FWIW, I actually do understand her reluctance to take up bike riding again. A few years ago I fell on stairs and broke my ankle. To this day, I avoid stairs (and I remember how I fell). If I had a severe bike accident and couldn't remember what happened I feel sure I would be extremely reluctant to ever ride again.

Sorry to hear this T-Al. Hope Lena is doing well. My DW and I also ride bicycles so I understand the enjoyment of riding. I hope that she will be able to get back on the bike because everyone knows how much enjoyment this brings to both of you. Best wishes to you both.

Well, you are half way between San Francisco and Portland both with great health care providers. Find someone you trust when you are ready to proceed.

My wife and I enjoy bicycling like you and Lena. I am very sorry to hear about this accident and wish Lena the quickest of recoveries. I am so pleased she was wearing her helmet while on a trail. Many cyclists take a helmet break when out of traffic.

I felt sick just reading about this. I am so sorry that it happened. I also hope that she has a complete recovery.

I can understand her feelings about not wanting to ride a bike again, but she could change her mind. We are getting ready to go on vacation and I was planning on renting bikes, but I am now hesitant. We have not been on bikes for quite a while.

I am glad that you had the bike computer. I can see how helpless one would feel, not being able to tell the responders where you were at when needing help.

Good luck with everything and please let Lena know that she is in our thoughts and prayers.

Al, I've been following your detailed description on Bike Forum. Very scary incident! Especially since she doesn't remember what happened! Best wishes on her speedy recovery!!

Hopefully she will recover well enough and begin riding again. I know a few posters on the Bike Forum mentioned getting a tandem bike and I agree! My wife and I purchased one as our Christmas present to ourselves. She's not much of a rider but this way we can enjoy the experience together. Our tandem rides are slow and easy! Enjoy the scenery, light mid cadence peddling, with a mid ride stop at the coffee shop.

Wow; sorry about the accident but glad to see she is recovering. My DW was hit by a car last August while on her bike. Her injuries were not as severe as Lena's, but she will not go on a bike again on the street. I understand Lena's fear.
Best wishes for her continuing recovery.

Best wishes for Lena's speedy recovery. Hopefully she regains her passion for biking as well, but I can understand why she doesn't want to bike again.
