I dislocated my shoulder on a trampoline at about 12. None for dh or the kids. I recovered without surgery but had to do physical therapy

My husband broke a bone in his hand. And I broke a bone in my pinky. My husband didn't have surgery but he can if it bothers him bad enough in the future. My brother broke his leg in three places in December and had surgery. Couldn't walk for like 8 weeks and did 6 weeks of PT.

Yes, it was me

I was barefoot, running through an office.... kicked a filing cabnet and broke my foot right under my pinky toe.

No surgery, they did have to set it though... 

it was probibly 6 weeks before I could walk without discomfort... But even now, if I bump it wrong or when it starts to get cold, it hurts. (that was june 2009)

I broke my wrist just this past Christmas. Slipped on ice and down I went. It was a closed displaced fracture but did not need surgery. Cast was on for 8 weeks. Still hurts when I do push ups but I have full mobility and flexibility in the wrist.

I had my nose broken by my kidnapper and rapist when I was 16.
The Drs didn't do surgery on it, I can pop it/make it crack. Its my little trick I can do.

I had 3 severe bone bruises (the bone splits between the layers) in my ankle last year. I was in crutches for 2 months, PT for 6 weeks and even then it took about 6 months for the swelling to diminish and for the pain to go away.
