I have never had a bone in my body broken in my life. I am sure when you break a bone it hurts like the dickens. My little sister fell off a porch when she was around 12 or 13 and broke her arm. They my (relatives) took her to the emergency room and made me and my brother pay the co-pay. (I was raised by relatives my mother passed when I was 12). Have you ever had a bone broken, if so what bone was it?

I have broken a few bones in my body! I broke my left elbow when i was about 7, my brother's friend was playing a bit too roughly and threw me on the floor, then i broke my finger a few years later, i think i fell straight onto it although i can't really remember how and the most recent one as when i broke my right wrist in a car crash a couple of years ago!! It does hurt a lot when you break a bone, i won't be breaking any more if i can help it!! xxx

I'll try not to, but i didn't do the other ones on purpose!! lol it does hurt, but the worst thing is when they put the cast on it and after a while it gets really itchy but you can't stratch it- it's one of the most frustrating things ever!!! hehe xxx

i broke my arm once when i was a baby but i never knew about it until a few years back. for more than 15 yrs i was like a girl with strong enough bones i hardly suffer a major injuries with all those falls i took. only to know that once my arm was cemented. kinda gave me a weird feeling. and i found out abt it through my aunt

I broke my right hand when I was a child, thanks to a horse that decided to toss me in the nearest ditch. Darn thing never did heal right and hurts when it gets cold out. Thats my only broken bone. But, two years ago I ruptured my achilles tendon in my leg. I had to have a tendon taken from my foot and grafted into my leg. The doctors told me I'd have been better off to have broken the ankle. The pain for that was and often STILL is unreal. I was on bed rest for weeks, couldn't walk for weeks afterwards. And still today often limp and deal with swelling and pain.

Hey neither have I! I think about that sometimes b/c it seems like everyone else has. I'm hoping and praying that I never do. I always think to myself that I will, but it's just a matter of time. I have no idea what it would feel like, but I imagine it would be pretty painful. I hope I never find out.

I broke my wrist in a motorcycle accident and, yes, it does hurt like the dickens The worst part was trying to do things with my left hand. I wrote some really strange looking checks in the month I had my hand in a cast

Hi Chev, I'm so sorry about your Mother. It sounds as if your childhood was a difficult one. I hope that's not the case. It's amazing that I'm from a family of 9 kids, 3 girls and 6 boys. I don't recall anyone of us ever having a broken bone. One of my little brothers almost cut his arm off with a circular saw. Our older brother was using it without the safety guard and put it down. Then the littlone one reached over the top for something and that's when it got him. Unless my brain is napping, I just can't think of any broken. Pretty lucky I guess. leenie

I broke both my hands and it was painful. Besides that I could not bear the plaster for three weeks. It itched me and I was really looking forward to get my hand out of the plaster.

Sometimes broken bones do hurt - but once I broke my collarbone and didn't even know it - my parents happened to notice I was moving right and took me to get it checked - sure enough it was broken. I've also broken different toes - now that hurts! Accidentally ran into a chair and oh boy! I've also broken my wrists and some ribs after falling. Dang! I sound clumsy as heck, don't I? But I've never had to have a cast after all that!

I made an error - I meant to write that my parents noticed that I WASN'T moving right... I forget to say too that once I was trying to learn to surf - I was sitting on the surfboard when a giant wave knocked me off and when the surfboard came down out of the air it hit me right smack on the side of my foot and gave me a hairline fracture - that little sucker "stung" like crazy! -- It was so tiny, yet hurt so bad!

I will be 50 years old next week and never had a broken bone in my body. This summer at the ripe age of 49 I started playing volleyball for fun. It was a league I joined, hadn't played for years but wanted to do something different. I was at our fourth game and our team was warming up. Both me and one of my teammates jumped for the ball at the same time and he fell on me, I hit the gym floor and he rolled over me. I sat up and said "ouch, my shoulder". I put my hand to my shoulder and it wasn't where it should have been...it was a little lower down my arm. AGGGGHHHH! The pain was instant and when I looked and saw how it was dislocated I almost passed out. The guy felt really bad but it was an accident. The paramedics came and off to the ER I went. It took alot of pain medication and alot of time to reset it. When I went for my follow up appointment I was told I also had an avulsion fracture. Ouch! I was a wench here with my partner for two months. I was in unbearable pain and soooo angry that this had happened. Things have gotten better. I am out of the brace though they immobilized it too long and now I have what they call a "frozen" shoulder. So through intensive physical therapy and alot more pain, in a few months I should be able to raise my arm high enough to brush my hair. So, my volleyball "career" is now over as are any other contact sports - apparently once this happens you are prone to it happening again. So I have to go back to other less strenuous activities. The bummer of this was I am left-handed and it was my left shoulder which made it even more debilitating. Oh well, life goes on. It can take 6-12 months to completely heal but it will. The one thing I do miss is bowling and I thought I would soon be able to again but that is something that does run a risk of me dislocating it again so what am I going to do? I am going to learn to bowl with my right arm. I want to thank my partner for hanging in there with me when I was so miserable I could hardly stand being around myself.

The only broken bone I have ever had (and I grew up on a farm!) was in my big toe. I thought it was broken and everyone told me it wasn't. This was in college. I went to doctor for another foot problem a few years later and he told me the toe had been broken and healed wrong!!! Not a lot of pain or problem, but boy was sure an "I told you so!!" for me to my family and friends! We have been really lucky in our family and family's families and have had under a dozen broken bones among 5 kids with families. So that is amazing! Wow, can't believe relatives made you and your brother pay the co-pay!

Never had a broken bone until I was 38 years old. Then someone ran a stop sign and hit my car. I threw my arm up to protect my son and my arm snapped. It was the radial bone which is tougher to heal. I had to have 3 different surgeries to put in plates and repair it. Now I have a scar running from my wrist to elbow.

Well,I remember that when I was 7 or 8 years old,two of my bones in the wrist changed their positions,so that I couldn't move my hand.And then my grandma took me to a doctor's,and she managed to cure it.I was very thankful to her and I thaught she was the person who gave my hand the second life.

I was pitching in softball practice one afternoon. I pitched the ball down the middle, my sister was the batter at the time, and she hit the ball back up the middle directly at me. I only got my glove part way up. I thought I'd jammed the middle finger of my left hand, but that night when I went to bed it still hurt like crazy, much more than a jam ever had before. The next day I realized, when I couldn't move the finger, that it was broken at the knuckle. I didn't want to stop playing softball, so I never got it fixed.

Good day that x - ray showed a complete fracture. Yes, me too hadn't and continue to hope to have no broken bones till the day I grow old. Fractures are not only hard but could lead to arthritis later on and the pain could just kill you.
