What was thelast serious injury you've had?

Back in June I tipped a boiling pot of pasta and water onto myself. I scalded the fronts of both legs with first and second degree burns on the tops of my feet. The pot handle hit my foot and gouged a big chunk of skin off. Trying to get away from the hot water, I slipped, fell and broke my tailbone. The sucky part is, the next day, I had to leave on a business trip that involved a walking tour of a plant!

  • Wow! You poor thing!

    Last Thursday night I tripped over my exercise ball in my bedroom. I broke a piece of my femur, I had surgery yesterday. Fortunately, I will be walking without crutches on Saturday, but the ortho said I will have to have knee replacement surgery at some point, I did a lot of ligament damage that's going to get worse over time.

  • 10 years ago I had a bone cyst that caused a hairline fracture in my leg. The cyst was fortunately bening and removed but that hairline fracture was the worse injury I've ever had. Other than that I sprained my wrist in a car accident once.

  • I had two morning sickness related injuries during my twin pregnancy in 2007. Both were due to hastily trying to make it to the toilet. The first, the seat to the toilet fell and hit my nose; it didn't actually break my nose, but it felt like it and also caused a gusher nose bleed. The second incident, I pinched a nerve in my neck that led to the facial muscle spasms and the worst pain in my life (worse than natural child-birth to me); it felt like I had knives sticking through my face.

  • No major injuries yet really. I fell off our deck and broke a toe. I broke it at the very bottom, by the pad of my foot. Hurt like mother fudger.

  • I sprained my ankle about 5 years ago. I skipped a step going down the stairs and sprained it in three places. It was so painful! The doctor said an ankle fracture probably would have hurt less.

  • I twisted my ankle several months ago, and it still hurts.
