though I'm usually not superstitious, I strongly advice you to knock on some wood. that's what I said about a week before I fell off my bike, breaking my right lower leg & ankle. then I said it again at the hospital, without the "luckily", but just in disbelief, to which the doc answered with; "well, now you did".

I had some finger traumas in childhood, but I think there was only a small crack.
And my bone, luckily, is unbreakable :cool: ;).

Ah well, shit happens.

I think the day I will break one of my bones will come anyway, so I won't knock on some wood. I'm having (sport-related) accidents all the time (a foot in my face last Thursday, some kind of involuntary high jump without mat before the holidays...) so who cares if I'm gonna break a bone.

;1202973']so who cares if I'm gonna break a bone.

uhh, you do, I'd say.
it's not something to be afraid of, because that's pretty pointless, but there's no need to take unnecessary risks either. maybe it sounds like it'll heal anyway & like 6 weeks to 2 months in cast isn't a big deal. maybe you even think it'd be pretty cool & that you'd look pretty tough in plaster cast.

but a fracture doesn't necessarily heal upto the point the bone/joint is in the same condition it was before & functions just as well. better yet, chances of that are pretty damn slim. & being immobilised & out of the running for that long is a pretty big deal.

suppose it's your leg, how will you get to school? the first week you probably won't care, maybe even enjoy some time off from school, but after a while it'll bug you. you miss out on classes, tests, exams, seeing schoolbuddies, having fun during class & schoolparties. you can't hang out with your friends - even if they visit, it's not the same. after the first couple of times & the first couple of weeks, they probably don't visit you as often anymore anyway, because their life pretty much goes on, while yours is standing still. sports become a no-no, not just the time you're in cast, but for a long long time after that, especially if it's a sport-related injury. & let me tell you, walking on crutches might seem no biggie, but after you get blisters on your hands, injure the nerve to your little finger with it & start walking funny, because your arms have gotten tired & you just can't keep up, you'll see that ain't all that convenient either.

believe me, I know, you'll care. especially if you're into sports.

I've never broken anything that I know of for sure, though I am pretty sure I broke a couple toes back in the spring while rehearsing for a show that night. I jumped and landed wrong (twice). They didn't need to be reset, so I didn't bother with a visit to the ER. I just taped 'em up and did the show that night. Now thats commitment. They were a lovely black and blue the next day. It was pretty cool. :cool:

But I've never broken any bones that I know of for sure. Lots of dance and cheer injuries when I was younger. But nothing more than a strain usually. I did dislocate my middle finger once

true.

not really, no xD


suppose it's your leg, how will you get to school? the first week you probably won't care, maybe even enjoy some time off from school, but after a while it'll bug you.

I had problems with my knee (cartilage atrophy) for about 1/2 year, and I wasn't able to do sports. I had to go to the weights room instead. That was pretty damn shitty. When I my knee was cured and I could go to my normal sports lessons with my classmates, it was a pretty good feeling, I really missed the team sports. So I have an idea of that case, even if only missed the sports lessons.


believe me, I know, you'll care. especially if you're into sports.

I am very into sports, but that's the reason I have those little injuries so often. if I don't give 100% in sports it does not really make sense to me.

But I'm actually kinda afraid of breaking my arm/wrist/fingers, because I play drums and it would take ages to train them back to their condition before I broke them. Also breaking my leg/foot wouldn't be that great. But as long it's only the collar bone or something similar, I really don't care.

In fact, I may have broke it. Well, not properly broken but maybe fractured a little. I've got a significant lump on the bridge and it has taken to clicking whenever I move the tip. Well, I can still breathe through it so that's all that matters.

Thinking about it, I've probably nearly broken fingers and toes many times over the years, and a few years ago I could have sworn I broke one of the bones in my right ear after I smacked it off a bookcase.

haha, I'm glad you don't think it'd look cool. dude, that's one stupid reason to break a bone, but it wouldn't be the first time I'd heard that in my studies.

sorry about the kneeproblems. :/ that's got to have been a crappy situation. what sport do you do?
it's cool that you're so passionate about it & the good part is, that if you're good, you're in shape & in control of your muscles & they just cooperate. does that make sense? I mean to say that most often passion & practice eventually lead to less injuries. your body is your tool in most sports & with drumming, it's your arms, wrists, hands, footwork, you name it. you need to take care of your body the way you take care of the rest of your gear & better than that. it's not just a tool, it's you.

my ligaments have always been my weak spot. two weeks ago, I managed to damage a collateral ligament in my knee with being a freakin' goalie in field hockey. that's unfair, at least it feels that way after things I've given up (like my position in the field), because my joints weren't fit for it. but I've got to take it like it is. 4 years ago I wasn't so careful & broke my leg & ankle, because I fell off my bike drunk. my muscles weren't cooperating & my ligaments couldn't take the hit, so the bone did. I couldn't be operated, because I didn't go to the hospital till 10 hours later. because of that, 1.5 years later I had to be operated on the damn thing for posttraumatic arthrosis. it's chomped away a year of university & sometimes I still limp. my ankle fork is & will always be crooked, so when I make a wrong kick at the ball, the collateral ligament in my knee takes the hit.

just saying, it's not just sport-related injuries & the joints you have troubles with, your weak spot, you have to watch out for. you just named your arm, wrist, fingers, foot, leg as being important to you & excluded your collar bone. try rapidly moving your right arm, while pressing down on your right collar bone with your left hand. you feel that? it all needs to cooperate. just be careful. you can be passionate & careful at the same time, you know. ;]

sorry for the long post. I'm pretty serious about things like this, can you see? ;p

The bones I have broken though, were both my Ulna and Radius, like, at the same time. It was what they call a "Green stick" fracture, so it wasn't that bad, but it still sucked sitting out of p.e. every goddamn day of 6th grade watching all the other kids play dodgeball. :(:(:(

I don't do a particular sport, but I played table tennis for 2 years. But that was long before the knee problems appeared. I do a lot of sports tough; I have sports lessons in school (2x 45min/1x45min), I go to the weights room (2x per week) and I'm in the local gymnastics club, where we do a lot of different stuff like team sports but also artistic gymnastics, but not on a really decent level. In team sports it's usually [insert sport] + rugby. Stuff you'd be given a red card for in pro soccer occurs every single minute. But it's a lot of fun, especially when we play volleyball and I'm at the blocking position xD

Maybe I can trace back my knee problems to the fact that I was growing REALLY fast the last two years (I'm 1.90m now, I had my hand x-rayed and the doc said I'll be 1.92m. I'm 15, btw).

By the way, what are you studying? Medicine?

And yes, the your-body-is-your-tool-thing is right. I learned that I'm having less pain in my knees the more I train the muscles in my legs.

I tried pressing my collar bone and moving my arm. I know now what you mean, let's say I can break my nose, and I don't really need to care.:rolleyes:

Oh, and sorry for your accident. I never had problems with my ligaments tough, so I can't really relate to it.

growing fast could cause some joint problems, especially in the knees, so yeah, that's possible. good that you're working on your leg muscles, so they can support your joints.

hahaha @ the nose. I was trying to imagine a sport you use your nose for. to answer your question, yes.

oh don't worry about the accident. I was just telling you that, because I didn't want you to think too lightly of things like these & watch out for injuries. I didn't mean you should be able to relate to crappy ligaments specifically, but I figured you could probably relate to having a physical weakness (even who says he can't, most likely can) & knee/joint problems that interfere with sports & the likes. & just to say a bone fracture can have pretty nasty consequences & doesn't always heal that smoothly.


to dr.vanessa - when a baby's shoulder gets caught behind the pelvic bone (which the doc can't really help), there's a reasonable risk for plexus brachialis injury. that happens, if the doctor doesn't recognise what's going on & pulls the head to speed birth & advices the mother to push even harder. since that obviously has been avoided, I don't think there's reason to think it was malpractice. a broken collar bone is a relatively mild injury, much worse things could have happened. plus, I can't imagine any other way a baby could break the collar bone when being born, than the shoulder getting stuck. large baby, small hole. any other way, a doc would have to do very strange things to establish a broken collar bone in a baby, that would most likely fall under child abuse. ;p

One. One of my right fist's bone... I was kinda pissed off and I guess I hit something because of my anger, next thing I know is that it swelled. I thought it was a regular injury with no broken bone, I went to the hospital 5 days after it and they told me it was broken. I kinda enjoyed it, because I was in the fourth grade, and I wasn't able to write because of the splint, of course... so, no homework for 1 month :) ...

Usually I am the odd man out (*cough* well... girl) when it comes to having not broken any bones, but finally I am not the only one.

I swear! Nose injuries are far worse than anything I've ever felt (even when compared to my injured toes earlier this year, which had me limping a bit for a while and they still ache occasionally if i stand wrong) Once my brother punched me in the nose (we really don't understand how or why this happened), but my nose was a little swollen and very painful for a good long time. I think it took a month for it to stop hurting completely. hmm... i wonder if he cracked it... idk... i don't like getting x-rays or anything like that, so I don't if i can avoid it.

and finally, I love the fact that I actually know the bone names and what "greenstick fracture" means. I took an emergency medical service course this summer. In-freaking-credible how much you can learn in three months!

i've already said that i agree with what you said...i'm takiing gynecology's lessons in college this period(the general part not as a specialization)and during a birth a young doc new in specialization ''caused'' a broken collarbone and our teacher told us that it was a kind of malpractice cause if he was more experianced it could've been avoided that's why i asked..:):p:)

Part of feeling no pain would've been caused by a dopamine (natural pain killing horomone in your body that many drugs either mimick or increase the release of in your body) and adrenaline rush. Its really cool how the body can deal so readily with something fairly traumatic (however short lived it may be). You could cut off a limb and not feel a thing. CRAZY!

And to Bodom J, yikes! I hear that ribs are some of the worst cause there is nothing you can do about it.
