Yes, I broke a toe once in three places and broke my clavicle in a rollover car accident at a very young age.
Every time we move, very tiny shards of our bones get cracked. However, our bodies are able to repair them. This is something I learnt in Anatomy module and would like to share it with everyone.
I broke my wrist one time. I fell and tried to catch myself and extended my arm to do so. The weight of my body shattered the bones at the end of my arm/bottom of my hand. Basically all of the little bones in that area were broken. I was lucky though because they did not move out of position. This meant no surgery and after being in a cast for 3-4 weeks and working on flexibility and mobility for a longer period of time, I was good to go.
I completely shattered my collar bone plate playing sand lot football when I was young and dumb, this one is bad and it still hurts even today at times, i could not work for almost a year.
Rode and trained horses my entire life and never broke a bone until my 65th birthday. A young mare went nuts on me and I bailed off -- broke my left pinky finger and my pelvis in two places. The break wasn't all that tough to get over but the crutches I had to use for six weeks nearly killed me!
No, I have never had a broken bone. A couple of bad sprains but nothing broken.
Yes, but not until two years ago. I was on a bike ride with my granddaughter when I looked over my shoulder fell to the ground. My granddaughter was embarrassed at first because we were on a bike trail, next to the road. She kept urging me and repeating, "Get up Nana .. Get Up! I finally said, Honey I can't, I think I've broken my wrist. She got on her bike and flew back home to get my husband. Sure enough it was a BAD break. I now have a plate and screws in my wrist. Who would have thought that a nice relaxing bike ride would end up like this?
I broke my left thumb at the lower joint and had to have surgery with a pin inserted playing first base on a softball team. Other than that I've been like rubber band man.
While playing indoor volleyball in college, my tennies caught on the court flooring and I fell over backwards sitting down, of course putting my hands out to stop the fall. Wow! Pain in the wrist! Thought that it was just sprained so left it for two+ weeks but it wouldn't stop hurting - so finally had an x-ray done. Was yelled at by the doctors and put in a cast. Funny how it was just a tiny little fracture in a tiny little bone in my wrist but boy did it hurt!
Yes, Thirty years back I had nasty accident. A driver who had fallen asleep while driving, veered off to my side and knocked me. I was riding my motor cycle. I flew above the car and landed about five meters away. I was left with a smashed shin and a thigh bone fractured in the middle and an intertrochanteric hip fracture. The thigh and the hip were fixed with pins, plates and screws. But it took more than three years and a series of surgeries involving a bone graft and plastic procedures (to add muscle and skin) for repairing the below knee fracture plus wounds. Now, I am left with a right leg that is five inches shorter than the left.
No I haven't and hopefully I never do! I have had a few close calls in the past though.
Yes I have. I broke both my ankles when I was 17 I fell down the stairs the first time and the second time I fell off a dock.I broke my tumb my senior year in high school on one of those heaters that they have in the rooms.
None so far. And i hope knock wood this won't jinx that!
I may have fractured two fingers at two different times, but I never got xrays so I'm not sure, they may have been bad sprains. However two weeks ago, I was competing in a gymnastics meet, and I was warming up my routine on the high bar. I went for my dismount which is a flyaway, or a backflip off the bar, over rotated and missed my feet, so I landed on my tailbone. I was told later from witnesses that it looked like I just sat down on the ground from about nine feet in the air. Turns out I received a compression fracture on my T11 vertebrae. Now I am in a brace and can't do much at all for a couple months.
I've had three bones broken. I broke my right index finger in high school catching a softball. I broke my big toe on my right foot just before we left on a month trip where I was to drive from California to Boston with my two kids. That wasn't fun, especially since we planned to do a lot of walking. It wasn't a bad break, but I had to wear that stupid shoe on the Boston history trail and it was HOT.
The worst break was in 1993. I broke my ankle running across a park at a home school picnic. I didn't see the drop off in front of me. I had just driven over for a few minutes from a nearby private school in which I'd been displaying my books for the summer. I was in the middle of moving the contents of two rooms back into the back room where they lived during the school year. I went to the park to hand out brochures. I was alone. Two of the Boy Scouts in the group had to carry me to the car after they called my husband to come and get me to take me to the emergency room. And we still had to finish moving all those books. I had a little help from my friends. It hurt, but my pride probably hurt more than anything because I'd been so stupid.
Yeah got into a fight, back then when growing up was well....growing up with the wrong sort of people. Broke my arm. The bone in between my wrist & elbow Long story short. It was the experience of a lifetime.
Ya..I had a fracture in my right ankle about an year ago. Fortunately, I got it treated from one of the best orthopedic doctors in the state - http://lewisorthopaedics.com. They treated it very well.
