Humans of Kilcock – Conn McDunphy

February 7th, 2021

“The neurologist in Beaumont Hospital signed me off on Friday. I am now allowed to return to racing but I must keep my neck rehab up for a long time to come.

After four months of uncertainty, not knowing if I would ever be able to race safely again, this is extremely welcome news.

For anyone who didn’t know, I fractured the left occipital condyle on my skull, which is basically C0 if you think of your neck vertebrae. The bony structure is still fractured but there is enough fibrous fusion and tissue for the bone to be stable and not mover further into my brain stem.

The fracture may never heal properly but they are happy it is stable and that it shouldn’t be any more of a risk racing with this than any other person.

See you on the road. I’m just going to keep showing up and grafting” – Conn McDunphy
