Have you ever broken a leg,arm ,foot or hand ?

July 30, 2008 8:23am CST
I was in my first year at university I have been 18 years old and I was on the stairs, when somebody arrive and push me slightly without any purpose. I missed my footing and cracked my foot on the step. The doctor said I would be fine and could walk again after 6 month. my foot was badly fractured in two places.After 6 month I've walk on my own again.

I have broken my ankle, foot, toe, elbow (have a metal plate in it now, 2 ribs and my back. The prognosis for my back was I would never walk gain but with a lot of (painful) rehab I proved the doctors wrong.

I was fortunate enough not to break anything until now. I had some sprained wrists or fingers, but I never broke a bone.

I have to say I'm lucky and yes as I type this I'm pausing to knock on wood.... ....*pause*..... ....*knock*..... Because I have never had a broken bone in my life. A broken nose once, but that was just the cartilage that broke. My then 2 year old brother was setting on my lap and he for some reason decided to head bump me without any warning.

I was in a car accident and broke my wrist in 3 places. It was very painful, especially when the doctors had to cack it back into position. OUCH I was in a cast from finger tips to elbow. It was very uncomfortable for six weeks in the summer time and your arm would itch and you couldn't scratch. Afterwards I was in theapy for three months to regain my range of motion.

i have broken only 2 bones in my body and both time it was a ridiculous story. when i was 8 or so i was riding my bike in the garden and i rode staight into the washing line and i broke the index finger on my left hand.and the when i was about 11 or 12 we were washing a shool bus but on the roof and i slipped it was quiet nasty i fell head first off the bus and broke my right arm in 5 places. it sounds really bad but i knocked my head too and got amnesia so i dont remember the break at all just what people told me plus i got 6 months off school. so thats my sad tale...its all true

Hello there my friend! I have never experienced having a serious fracture. The worst I got so far is a sprained ankle. I do not want to miss a lot of my activities just because of a fractured arm, hand, leg or foot. I am active in a lot of sports and I am always very careful so as not to get a fracture. It's good that you were able to recover from that fractured foot. Take care!

I have never actually broken anything, but I did have a busted nose when I was two years old. Luckily, I was a toddler, so I do not remember it happening.

Fortunately I have never experienced it up to now. Perhaps I am a person who don't want to take a risk:) I love China

Thanks youre safe by now I supposed. I have broken my left hand, wrist. I fell on our stairs and used my left hand to support my body. I was hospitalized, cast my left hand from for about about a month, then one month on the wrist only. So far it is okay although I am still going on theraphy. I still cannot used it lifting heavy objects, but at least I can do my ordinary chores, typing and the like. Take care not to sprain again your foot. Perhaps you need also theraphy. God Bless You.

I have been very fortunate, no broken bones anywhere for me. I have had some sprains or pulled muscles, but that is the extent of it. I use to be someone that wasnt very active, meaning i didnt play sports or anything, so that is probably why i never had any. Now i workout at the gym and that is wehre i have gotten the injuries i have had, because of not using the equipment prooperly, but i have learned my lesson.

I never had any part of my body severely broken that i had to suffer for it for months. However, I had my hand and ankle sprained for a time or another but it was only something that lasted for days. I just cant imagine having to suffer for many months and not have the full use of any part of my body because of injury.
