Share your worst physical injury, how it happened and how long it lasted.

I once choked on a pen top (how lame ¬_¬) and it cut a small hole in my throat, which meant whenever I inhaled small bubbles of air would gather under the skin in my neck. You could actually feel it, was kinda freaky, plus I had to be fed through a tube (I was in hospital of course). It healed in a few days. That's the worst injury I have had, not much is it? especially considering that I'm a skateboarder (in summer anyway).

Um, I don't really think I can remember how long it lasted by I was returning a bottle of Coke to a slaesgirl when I dropped it and has a minor cut in my leg. The Doctor has to stitch it, but I dunno how I felt when they did that. I was only 4 back then.

February 7th, 2008, 7:53 AM
Oh...yep I cut my little finger by a piece of glass, and it was like blood everywhere, but its attatched again XD It was a long time ago.

I fractured my big toe on my right foot wrestling with my cousin and my best friend. I slipped on a pillow and jammed my toe in a folding chair. It's lame, I know. Who slips on a pillow? Anyway, I don't remember how long I had it, but I have to wear a corrective brace on my toe and foot for a few weeks.

Stepping on one of those old spiral hobs you get on assumably cheap cookers, lol.
I was two at the time and don't remember it, but the three (now very subtle) scar lines across the sole of my left foot show that it did happen.

How I stepped on it? Well, I was two years old like I said, so I'd be climbing up things; just so happened the hob was hot/on and I climbed onto the kitchen work surface, then stepped on the hob.

I broke my arm when I was four pretending to be Spiderman! XD That's pretty much it for me, I've very cautious so I don't get hurt often.

February 7th, 2008, 9:50 AM
Well, tough topic for me...

When I was in being...formed...in my mom, she was driving down the road, 2AM easter morning, getting back from home to florida, and dad in the passanger, roads were clear, and she wasn't drunk, then a truck driver, feel asleep at the wheel, and sped up to over 100 miles per hour, head on collision with our car on the other side of the road, it was such an impact it gave me a caved in chest, yeah different, so im living my life fine with it...

Now it was my 3rd year in football, our 8th game, and I was starting quaterback... I called a long play to the slot reciever, started the play, lost my protection in the O line, and a linebacker speared me in my chest at full speed...

The impact cuased some freaky things, and had to end my football career becuase of it... that's the only big injury I have, and by far the worst...

..I once jumped off my friend's roof into his pool at 2 AM. Apparently, I was a bit too close to the edge of it, so as I landed, my leg hit the side of it, on the concrete ground, and like..broke ._.

I laughed about it for a few minutes, then realized I was in incredibly pain, and started crying. After that, I was carried off into a van by some of my friends, and was driven off to the hospital, where my parents met up with me. Instead of the response I was hoping to get from them, they just started at my leg, which was currently just..broken towards the ankle, asked "DUDE, WTF DID YOU DO?!?" and..started laughing ._.

Anyways, i'm fine now, but I was in a cast for a few months after that.

..Please do not judge me on how retarded that story was just now, kthx.

Wow reading that made me ugh.cant look, you must of been in incredible pain...

My friend BJ had a pool like that with the roof near, I jumped just hurt my bum of the floor in the pool.

Wow -- some of you've gotten pretty banged up. Yikes. =/

My worst injury would have to be when I cracked my rib in an accident. It was a small crack, but hurt for a couple months. The muscle damage wasn't near as bad as it could have been, but it did do some nasty paints and long term spasms and such. :|

Non-injury related would have to be for the bacterial meningitis. That stunk.

If I have to tell this story again...

I was playing soccer, me and my friend both ran for the ball and our knee caps collided. He didn't even feel it but my knee cap was shoved two inches to the right. I hopped from quarter field to the goal line (in circles which was very inefficiant). I did handle it very cool and collectedly I might add...even though it was the most pain in my life. Also it took forever for an ambulance to come and then the paramedics sucked at putting in the morphine (the morphine didn't even work after apparently 12 things of it.) o_O

Runner up is when I was climbing onto my garage roof and the neighbors gutter supporting my feet broke. I fell onto a fence and bounced off, missing my nuts by near inches. I had a bruise the size of a grapefruit on my leg, though.

February 7th, 2008, 4:24 PM
I broke my arm and wrist rollerblading. Cause instead of falling backwards and landing on my botton, I'll fall forward and land on my arm.
I got stitches in my head from running into the edge of a wall, cause I was a spastic child.
I scraped about almost an inch of skin off my finger, when I was dragged past the door and my finger got scraped against something sharp.

February 7th, 2008, 4:32 PM
i was playing with a ball on my not very good Wooden floors, and a two inch splinter went up my foot. a 40 minute surgery was what took it out, and i got home at the hospitial 12:30 am that day. I had been there since 7:00pm, so it was an okay visit. Other than that i'll perfectly fine usually, except for the little stupid things i do =]

February 7th, 2008, 4:45 PM
Whoo, these are fun to remember D:

Ok, so, I was about eh..8 years old? And I decided to go out biking and catch some butterflies while I was at it. I have no idea why I bothered because butterflies were rare to find by my house .___. Anyway, I grabbed the butterfly net, which weighed a little less than I did, it was a big net with a metal rim. So I start to ride my bike, and once I gained speed I lifted up the net, then I lost my balance and then net caught my front wheel which sent me flying forward off my bike. I landed head first and skidded on the road x_x I had a huge road burn mark on my stomach and a bruise on my face.

Another time, I was six years old and at my crushes birthday party. He wanted to play baseball and I wanted to watch :< So I climbed up their mini tree behind him so I could get a good view. For whatever reason, his parents let him use a metal bat and when he swung, it flung back and hit my in the eye ;; I feel out of the tree and blacked out for about ten minutes. I got a black eye and hadf to go home </3

Finally, while bike riding through the park when I was about seven, I fell down a ditch and got a TON of scratches from the tree branches cutting me.

February 7th, 2008, 4:48 PM
I think the worst injury i have had would be an infected hand.

February 7th, 2008, 4:55 PM
My finger once got ripped to the bone in a car accident O_o;;; Dads are clumsy.

And I hit a car on my bike when I was six. But I forgot how painful it was. >: My face was covered in blood. >: I still does not remember how painful it was D<

Aaand, I broke my arm D< which I just broke about two weeks ago ... so yeah ^_^ damn cast is still on

Edit: ooh I remembered one when I was 8 i was riding my bike happily, when suddenly, i ran over a demented curb and i flipped over the handlebars of my bike damn bikes is dangerous >:O

February 7th, 2008, 7:22 PM
Oh god. I could go on forever. I get hurt at least once a week in ballet. I've never broken or sprained anything but I tend to get very strange injuries.

My most recent- I accidebtally tore my toenail clean off. And now the nail isn't growing back right. Whatever does grow back is either malformed or it falls off O_o [This has been going on for at least two months .__.]

Once I cracked my tail bone. Couldn't sit right for weeks O_O Another time I hurt my back so bad that I could even tilt my neck back a millimeter. I know there's more but those are the only ones I can think of.

i broke my wrist in this year back in September. I was skateboarding down a huge hill, and then i didn't notice the turn, or the car. The car came right at me, so i turned (away from the road, i new i would fall, but atleast i wasn't run-over). Well, then, i ran right over the curb and flew into someone elses yard, and i landed on her stone patch (ouch >_<). I went to the emergency room and had to wear a cast for 6 weeks. I also had a sprained leg and a hurt neck after that for a while too, so i had trouble walking...and turning my head!

Believe me, it was the worst 6 weeks of my life (and the cast was itchy)!

February 10th, 2008, 8:40 AM
I had burn marks when I wasn't careful enough while handling fire.

I broke my leg and both my arms while skydiving ( the chute didn't deploy until 400 feet )

I live an exciting life -_-

February 10th, 2008, 9:41 AM
My worst would have to be when I was about 6 the chair in my class which I sat on was really bad.. and it snapped and I fell back and hit the computer desk with my head.

I had blood all the way down to my pants. I had to go to emergency which took an hour waiting -_-.

Yep that has to be the worst

February 10th, 2008, 9:53 AM
My very worst injury happened when I was about 3-years-old. My brother (5-years-old at the time) and I had just received one of those Fisher-Price dump trucks that you can sit in and drive around it. It was really big. >: Anyway, theEND (http://www.pkmncommunity.com/member.php?u=9213) was driving and I was sitting in the back, which tipped and stuff so it could dump sand out. We were in the garage driving around in circles, when all of a sudden the back tipped and I fell out and landed on the concrete floor, thus breaking my arm. It was rather traumatizing. I remember having to wait a few hours to go to the hospital, and since we didn't have any ice-packs, I had to put frozen corn on it. ;;

So, I don't think I'm ever getting into a car with David once he gets his license. >;

February 10th, 2008, 10:30 AM
Mine would have to be nearly breaking my back.

rofl that last sentence made me laugh so hard. XD

Anyway, I dont recall ever getting any broken bones or anything like that but, I did however flip over my bike when I was nine. : <

Me and my mom were riding are bikes to get the mail and the side of the road was torn up badly. Well, I rode over a peice of the tar and flipped over my bike. :| I was banged up pretty badly and I had a mild concussion...best part was my helmet saved my life...and that's kids, is the reason why helmets are safe. :D

February 10th, 2008, 10:59 AM
I once broke my little toe dancing to I'm Too Sexy.

I got it stuck under a door.

I'd have to say its between the second degre burns across my chest due to shirt of fire (^_^ campfires are fun!!) or taking a golfing Putter to the Head at summer camp. (man I had the Ladies all over me after that, too bad I wasn't old enough to be interested in girls yet -_-)

February 15th, 2008, 7:26 PM
I feel sorry for you guys, I haven't had anything near that bad.

But my sis and two mates have!

Okay, sis first.
She was on a escalator. Her foot got caught in that brush-like thing on the edge! She was in agony, and the escalator was STILL moving, so her leg ALMOST got torn off, good thing all the people and her mates helped her, she couldn't walk, her vision was blurred. No hospital though, she couldn't walk but it wasn't broke. She couldn't go to school either, her foot had swollen... ¬_¬

Now my mates. Part 1

My friend was at home with my other friend, on their own and all, just them two. No adults. Anyway, my mate was cutting an avocado. The knife slipped and went half way through her hand, she dropped everything, she didn't cry, she didn't scream, but she panicked big time! My other mate who was their ran over to her, and didn't know what to do, they couldn't take the knife out, because she would lose to much blood. My mate who had a knife half way through her hand couldn't see, she couldn't see or hear. Luckily she came to school next day with a bandage on her hand, and she is fine (Phew!)

My mates part 2

My mate skateboards, he was on the open ramp and he fell onto the concrete. He was crippled, which is why for the whole time he had a cast on we called him Crippled-Chris.

Yes, everyone I know is lucky ne?

February 15th, 2008, 8:58 PM
I'm sorry, but I couldn't stop cracking up as I read all the posts XD

Does that make me bad?

Anyways, my (not necessarily worst but certainly best) injury was when I was climbing a tree with my friend. He was above me, and the bark ripped off the tree limb under his feet and he slid into me. I fell out of the tree, fell about 7 to 10 feet, and landed on my back. It didn't do permanent damage per se, but it hurt like mad, bruised a lot, and made me black out for a bit. Funny part is that I was more or less laughing for like five minutes after it happened, don't know what I found so funny at the time.

Close second would be when me and my friend were play-fighting, he told me to block a punch, and I didn't get my hand in place in time. He ended up punching my thumb, which bent into my palm, thus popping the tendon on the outside. I couldn't play video games for a while DX

February 17th, 2008, 3:47 AM
Mine was my spine, I had a spine problem now ^^;

February 17th, 2008, 4:03 AM
A dog mauled me when I was young.

Lasted for about 3 months.

My dad likes to show the scars (or what's left of it) to his friends....

February 17th, 2008, 1:10 PM
I got attacked by my cat when I was eleven. He bit through much of my ankle, and I ended up in the hospital for three days with an infection bad enough to give me a risk of a heart attack. Thankfully, the bite didn't pierce my bone, so I didn't have an amputation. Most pain ever.

February 17th, 2008, 1:13 PM
I've fallen from a escalator on a mall, and I've open the knee, playing football.

February 17th, 2008, 1:20 PM
Sprained my ankle in 8th grade, cracked my head open a bit when I was little

February 17th, 2008, 1:30 PM
Hah, wow I'm lucky. My worst injury was fracturing my left index finger a few months ago. It only lasted for a few weeks but hurt like hell. xD

February 17th, 2008, 7:57 PM
I got a huge cut on my left leg after I fell ontop of a dollhouse with a pointy rooftop..had to get stitches x_x;

February 17th, 2008, 8:04 PM
I'm a very cautious person so I don't get hurt much. The worst pain I've ever felt was when I had my hand on the window seal and the window just slapped shut. My middle finger was black and blue for a week.

Careful With That Axe, Pichu!
February 17th, 2008, 8:06 PM
Well, there was that one time when my girlfriend accidentally slammed my head with her guitar... The forehead bleeds alot.

Then there was this car crash months ago where I cut my wrist with a broken window and there was blood everywhere too.

And when I broke one arm and had a fissure on the other after I made some sort of dive into the pavement from a tree, I was about 8 years old.

does cancer count as an injury?

i mean it's a sickness, but still.

two brain tumors. :<

worst thing ever.


February 18th, 2008, 10:08 AM
I really never had that bad of an injury. The worst was just this summer when I was running barefoot and my little toe on my right foot stuck to the karate mat. CRACK! broke my toe. It sucked because I didn't want to cause a scene and get people all worried, so I finished the class. It was sparring, too. So I kicked people with my broken toe or whatever. And because of my family's religion, I couldn't go to the doctor. My dad said my toe was broken, but he didn't let me skip cross country camp the next day. wtf? No cast... *sobs* I know a toe isn't so bad, but it hurt to walk on it all day at school. 6th months later and it doesn't hurt but it's like twice the size of my other pinky toe.

the worst injury I ever had was when I broke my arm so badly that I had to get 3 screws in my arm


February 19th, 2008, 10:18 AM
The worst injury I've ever had.. well, I'm not entirely sure. One time I was making a pizza, and I stupidly grabbed the pan from the oven and burnt my entire hand, hurt like heck for a looong while. Needless to say I never attempted that again.

Also once I was playing on our trampoline with a neighbor.. she came down on my hand HARD and it got fractured. D: That sucked.

February 19th, 2008, 5:22 PM
I would have to say two black eyes and my nose hurt really bad for like a week, but that ain't really an injury.. plus I got punched between the eyes. ><
