Hey,

 

I was wondering if any TWO members have had any injuries. Whether they were minor/major still list them. Also, how did you gain the injury?

 

Cheers.

I have been really lucky and never had a broken bone or bad illness. The worst i had was a sprained ankle, that happened on one New years eve (before i'd had a drink!) so it ruined my evening as i had to stay in! :)

When I was like 5 or 6 and I had just learnt to ride my bike without stabilizers (sp?), I tried to go down a hill without using my brakes, ...I was doing well until I smashed my face into a telephone pole thing and nearly broke my noise. Bled a box of tissues worth of blood that day...

 

Then when I was 11, I was playing pool with a friend, and rather simply, I got the chalky end of the cue jammed in my eye which it caused it to bleed, and require stitches.

 

And the last was just a few weeks ago, as I had just broken into my grandparents' shed, the door wouldn't shut as I was leaving, so I slammed the b*astard as hard as I could (forgetting the broken pane of glass hanging loosely from the top of the door...) and almost sliced my skin right off my finger when the glass went straight through. Fortunately the skin just barely hung on and I got stitches to fix it. They gave me laughing gas as they stitched me up, which definitely ranks somewhere in the 10 coolest moments of my life! :)

 

That's about it.

If it counts as an injury, I cut my arm severely on barbed wire when I was 6 (still have the scar across my arm to prove it). I also went head first into a spike at the side of a rafiator, and cut my head open real bad.

 

I suffered temporary paralysis (well, I call it that - don't know what the technical term is, but I couldn't move or feel anything in my body for 3 minutes) while 3Ding a mate, which shows ya how real the effects of wrestling really are. And I've suffered pulled muscles and a dislocated wrist a few times. Nothing major.

I've had a broken wrist which happened last year I think when I fell off a rail off doing a grind,skateboarding and also I bruised my ribs on the last day of Junior school when a fat kid powerbombed me

my injury has a back story so bear with me.

i play rugby and in April 2000 i got kicked on my right knee and it went too far back - by that i mean it straightened but too much - and it swelled loads but i kept playin on it for a few more months until i eventually had phsyio on it. she told me one of my medial ligaments had torn and physio would solve it. i went back to rugby in the sept of that year and through sheer hard work got selected for the Wales womens U.19's even though my knee still hurt.

i played one game just one game and then told the coach my knee hurt and he sent me to the WRU specialist. one appointment with him and he told me that i had infact torn my anterior cruciate ligament in my right knee (the same injury as jazz and kanyon) and that i needed surgery. i had the surgery in july 2001 where they replaced my ligament with one of my ligaments that hold my knee cap in place and i was on crutches and in a knee brace for three months along with physio for 8 months.

so i went back to see my surgeon in august 2002 for a final check up and told him that i had been having pain whenever i knelt down on the knee and that i couldnt straigten it fully. after many xrays later he told me that one of the pins that held a bone graft in place was to close to the surface and that whenever i knelt down it was pushed into the bone - that is pain boys and girls.

so now im waiting for an op to take the pin out and to do some scraping behind the knee cap so that the knee will be straight.

 

im just gutted cos ive not played rugby since March 2001 and it was my big chance to make a name for myslef in international rugby

Two minor concussions, once I stood up in a sleeping bag and went head first into a chest of draws, other time got KOed by a cricket ball :(

 

Illnesses: Conjuctivitus (eyes closing uncontrollably and making loads of gunky stuff), Appendicitus, Severe Chicken Pox, and some virus or other.

 

Broken Bones: Big Toe, Little Finger.

 

One of my friends once cut the top of their thumb and severed an artery :roll

Its ironic that this thread gets posted on the same day as I manage to mess up my hamstring playing football eh?

 

But whilst I got a bad hamstring just now, other than that I've only ever really had minor injuries in my life. I broke my wrist a couple of years ago, but other than that, never really had to go to hospital for anything.

i sprained my arm when i fell before, and one time when i was about 10 i was trying to cut a banana and had a chefs knife and it sliced the skin beside my thumb in half, lol you could see inside my hand a bit that was definitely the worst that has happened to me, so far.
