Your Injurys and Breaks
Posted 25 February 2006 - 11:12 PM
personally i have been lucky. only ever broken two bones before.
My nose when i was wee. fell off the top of a deer fence straight on to a rock nose first.
and secondly and more interestingly my knee. Grab some popcorn.
All happened at the start of 5th year, i had just come back from football and i flicked a stone over my head, like u would do with a football, and then felt a sharp pain in my knee and hobbled in doors. so i'm laid up for the weekend cos it was pretty sore and then went to school the next day for 5th year introducion day!! Which sucked i may add. So i am going to school with my knee bloody hurting, total agony to walk or do anything, Couple of mouths later its still sore and what not, with a wee lump. But i'm back to playing sport, playing football and stuff. then whilst playing basketball i got knee-ed right on it and just crumpled. got home and the swelling was growing huge(it was actually the size of a tennis ball) and it justs gets sore-er and more red in the next couple of days. Then the next morning i wake up about 6 o clock put my hand under the sheets and feel moisture and think shit (nothing dirty, that never even crossed my mine) then i just fell back to sleep. at half seven my mum walks me up for school, i lift the bed sheets off and look at the matress. whole bed is covered in blood, with 2 huge clotted lumps the size of a golf balls lying there. My knee had exploded under the pressure of the swelling whilst i was sleeping. Nice eh. So i was like emm.. mum bit of an accident here! So i go to school, show off my hole and decide i better go to the docs again. ( i had been once(about a month after i did it) and he had no idea what i had done, we just thought it was a muscle pull) and he like yip no idea what it is. so i have these big bandages to go on it and all sorts, and i had to go back every week to see my progress. then i got told i had to go to hospital. had to wait for 2/3 months. FARSH !! then when i finally got there hes like yip god knows what that is. puts all the tests away etc. all came back clear. Got an x-ray, had snapped abit of bone off my knee. So i had been walking around without crutches or anything with a broken knee and had been playing flipping sports aswell!!! madness. Apperently i have quite a high pain threshold. the doc told me that as he blunt my flesh in the hole in my knee with some sort of lethal burning sticks. he had to do this because the flesh was healing quicker than the skin or something. So its all heal up nicely now. only took a year from first doing it to it healing properly.
So anyway bit of an eassy there! i have photos as proof of the lump but their on my phone. and i don't have bluetooth on my computer
But yeah... lets hear ur woes of injury....

tomorrow doesn't matter,
turn that music up,
till the windows start to shatter,
cos you're the only one who can get me on my feet,
& i can't even dance

A few major ones:
At age 14 I found out that the bone in my right knee was growing the wrong way which forced me to stop football for 6 months. I wasn't allowed to run or put any sort of stress on it.
Injured my back playing football. Had to get the game abandoned as they got an ambulance onto the park. Was fine after some rest but according to my coach it was the most awkward landing he'd seen. Simply put I went in for a 50/50 ball and the other guy slid in while I stood up. I went over and landed with my back sort of curled, landing on my lower back with my feet pretty much over my head.
I suffer from asthma (not really in past few years). Also have some severe allergies. Only had one serious asthma attack when I was 5. Was seconds away from a severe allergic reaction that could have killed me also.
When I was 12 I was playing football in my neighbour's back yard with a fly away. He kicked the ball into a tree and I went up to get it. I couldn't reach it and so I asked for a pole to help. He couldn't see me and decided to throw the pole into the tree. It was metal and hit me about 5mm from my left eye. I fell 10ft from the tree. Luckily the pole stopped when it hit my skull but nonetheless there was bloody everywhere. Had a bandage round my head for weeks!
Oh yeah, when I was 4 I sort of ran head first into a wall and split my head open. That was pretty stupid. I didn't see the wall or nothing, until my brother shouted "Scott! The wall" I didn't stop, maybe I thought I'd go straight through!?

It hurt like hell to do the toilet for ages after that and twas all bruised. And...it still hurts sometimes
Once I was climbing a barbed wire fence and got stuck half way. Got a bit of barbed wire caught in my thigh. Ouch!
I also fell backwards down a dyke on to barbed wire and have a scar on my shoulder.
Broke my fingers countless times in sibling arguments (!!) and falling out of treehouses and hockey games.
And I have stitches in my thumb at the moment from a glass injury. Which will no doubt leave a beauty of a scar runnign down the length of my thumb perhaps even stained black from the ink that I was covered in while it happened.
Wellt ahts a few of hte ones that cmes to mind...

Weird that thinking about it I have had many injuries, only 2 breaks and never had stitches. We must just be hardly up here in the highlands

Broke my ankle in two places when I was 14, because a couple of kids decided to trip me up with a skipping rope while I was outside with a bunch of people having a water fight. So they tripped me up, somehow I broke my ankle in two places, was in agony, had to go to hospital and wait two hours or so until a doctor would look at it. He only noticed one break, but was suspicious about another one, so booked an appointment for me with the consultant for the following day and put on a temporary cast for the night. Next day, the consultant had a look at the x-ray for five seconds then immediately concluded that it was broken in two places. He could have done that the day I broke it tho, if it took him that little time.
Also, when I was six years old, I ran and slipped on the wet paving, it was a rainy day, ended up falling into a cast iron post and cracking my head. Had to have stitches, and had a lovely scar that's visible now every time I get a haircut.
In reply to IcE, well, I thought I'd never get stung by a wasp, until two years ago in December, when I was wrapping presents in my Gran's house, in the loft, and a wasp crawled up to me, I took a step and stood on it without realising...was barefooted at the time, got stung on my toe. Wasn't nice, I can tell you that. Killed the bugger soon after.

I dislocated my knee after a whole day of cycling, i literally just got off my bike and out it popped! (it wasn't funny i was in agony for 4 hours until the doctor put it back in) anyway i got off school for 3 months which was allright!. Then when i went back to school i dislocated it again, wasn't as bad the second time and then to top it all off i found out i had scoliosis (cuvature of the spine) so had to go on a wee trip to The Sick Kids Hospital in Edinburgh for 2 weeks to get an operation which consisted of attaching 2 8cm long titanium rods to my spine and had to get part of my hip removed at the same time to graft it into my spine to help it grow straighter. Now i have 2 scars to mark the occasion, one that runs right the way down the length of my spine and one on my hip. Nice.

Well, i was born with a slightly strange heart - 2 things were connected at the wrong place so that had to be fixed during some major heart surgery. Doctors didn't realise this until i was 2, they thought i had asthma up until then.
I ran into a glass coffee table which resulted in a VERY nasty cut lip - resulted in another hospital trip! 5 - 6yrs
Again, whilst running, i slipped on freshly cut grass and dominated my chin - i chipped the bone - hospital trip! 10 yrs?
Whilst skateboarding i broke my wrist on a vert ramp at 13!
I've got a lot of injuries and scars from mountain biking and skating, but none from snowboarding!
So i have many scars, including a 25 - 30cm one:)

A couple of years ago i tripped over a shoe in my gran's living room and fell backwards through her glass door. Ended up in a pool of blood at the back of my head and no skin left on my elbow so i could just see the bone sticking out. Then i passed out (with shock i think) and had to be rushed to hospital where they operated and fished all the glass out from my elbow and head. I have the most ugliest of ugly scars on my elbow now - lovely! Ive also had various other operations but i won't bore everyone with all my ailments
