Lost grip while moving a pallet at work. Broke my toe. They footed the bill. Really part shoulda gone to prior job at college bio lab. Had to get stronger antibiotics b/c they found out I had a few nastier bugs in my system. Read over the list and realized was a good match to the list of bacteria and fungi I worked with in the lab. But employer paying for it was Wal*mart, so no guilt felt on that front.
Broke hip in high school, right wrist in parking lot, right elbow twice, fell down a flight of stairs and broke left elbow, hit head on a dropped ceiling, causing me to fall on steps and break right leg.
8 altogether, right clavical twice, left clavical once, both bones of left forarm, one sticking through the skin, 3 toes plus, 1 discectomy, 3 rotator cuff (right twice left once), 5 knee, 1 ankle, 1 nissan for GERD, and 1 umbilical hernia (complication from the nissan surgery). It looks like a lot now that I write them all. Oddly enough, my doctor and I consider me to be healthy even though I still need a surgery for a diastasis recti hernia (another complication of the nissan surgery).
@yakkoTDI I was on my road bike on flat pedals because of an ankle injury the week before on my mountain bike. I was on a paved path going 10-12 mph around a sharp turn and must have had a left pedal strike and went down right on my left shoulder. I don’t remember as it happened quick. I friend riding behind me doesn’t really know what happened either. Only bad accident or injury I’ve had riding road or mountain regularly for 30 years.
@Stumpy91 I did the pedal strike on a turn in my first few months of cycling. I got away with no real injury but I did taco the wheel of my low end road bike. It took another 26 years before I broke the leg on an easy trail. The high end mountain bike was ok. Just needed to point the seat forward again. That was 4 years ago so I got 22 left before the next break.
@RiotDemon mine was a distal fracture so it only had a one inch size bone left at the end. It would never heal with just a sling. In addition you can see the proximal pointed end of bone jutting upward. That was stuck in the muscle above. All of that plus ligament damage made it a pretty serious injury.
Talus bone. Left foot. They call it a snowboarders break. I guess it is unusual to break that bone. It usually happens from great impact to the foot and the Fibula bone from your leg drives into the foot and smashes the Talus like a pool stick hitting a cue ball. I broke mine in a freak Racquetball game mishap. Pins and screws hold several pieces together. It happened in 2007 and still hurts to this day.
My wife and I were merely engaged at the time (Christmas Eve of 2009) and we were spending it up with my parents in northern WI. A pretty sizeable snowstorm hit, so my dad was getting the plow out to clear it and told us he had moved his new truck to the back section of their driveway, but that he’d need one of us to move it, which initiated a foot race.
We were neck and neck in heavy Sorel boots and a foot of snow, but then my right leg collapsed from under me and I no longer could control which way my foot pointed. My wife made it to the truck before me, then realized I wasn’t with her, so she came back and snarkily asked what was wrong, then told me to get up. I said it didn’t hurt, but that I was pretty sure I couldn’t, so she grabbed my dad and sister and we hauled my ass up to the nearest ER where they informed me that I’d shattered my fibula because it grew with a twist, which created a weak spot. Seven screws and a plate later, I got released Christmas Day. I’ll try to dig up the shot of the implants
Fractured left wrist when my right hand was already in a cast from a boxers fracture. Then in 2014 I fractured my right wrist. The left wrist has a plate and 4 screws in it. The right had a pin in it that it rejected and literally pushed it back out of my wrist.
