I have never broke any body part. I hope I never do. I can only imagine how painful it would be and how awful too. I have know people to break stuff but I have been very fortunate. I am glad for that. The worst I have was a sprang ankle. A sprang ankle is not fun to have and does hurt but not as much as a break would. It's a scary thought it could happen. I try not to do crazy things that would put me in a position for my leg to break. I take calcium pills and other vitimans to keep my body healthy. I can only hope I stay fortunate!

Well, I never did broke any part permanently of my body, but had a fracture twice on my both knees. The first instance, being when I was learning to ride a bicycle which was definitely, a taller one, and I got imbalanced and suddenly fell of it and the road was stony there. So, my knee felt right on the stony part and got fractured. So, it took me around 20 days to get it over with. The second instance, being when I was playing cricket and while playing, I had to run for a catch, so I dived for it, and fell accidentally on a marble tile which had its pointed edge piercing the skin of my knee and so it was the other knee. It was very bad experiences for me. And later on, now, I am fine!!

this one reminds me of a small but big incident i have created in my childhood.when we were(me and my sister) playing---i accidently kicked her left hand with my leg---she had her hand pointing to the wall so i had exactly kicked on her left small finger---she started crying so hard and we came to know that her finger was broken.after that i became so careful that i never hurted again and the funny thing is that finger is still bent---she cant point that finger straightly and each time i see her hand it reminds me of that kick lol.great day.

lucky, i dont experience broken bones in my body, just some cuts and insect bites due to my carelessness... lets just be careful and not do anything that will hurt our body and damage our bones.

Hi tuckersheri, When I was in primary class my left hand broken and was on plaster. I can’t recollect the pains because I was very small (at the age of 5) but I remember, first my parents took me to some ayurvedic people they didn’t know that it was a fracture and finally a pharmacist who worked in a health centre asked my father to consult a doctor and shows some doubts about the fracture. I was not worried much about the fracture because I could sit at home (no schooling) and everybody is giving special attention to me. If I fought with my brother (I often fight with my brother in childhood) elders supported me.

I've had two broken bones in my life. When I was nine years old there was a filing cabinet in my classroom that was knocked over while I was at my backpack, this broke my ankle in two places and I had to have surgery to reposition the bones in my leg. This was extremely painful and a sprain is nothing compared to that. The other broken bone that I've had was when I was nineteen years old and I fell off the tailgate of a pickup truck and broke my wrist. This too was a painful experience, but even that didn't compare to my ankle.

Have broke my middle finger in my second grade during a game at my neighbors house. Got it stuck in a hole small hole when I slip in a chair. Really don't know the details anymore as painful experience such as this are better left in the past.

I've broken my ankle once. This was the worst pain I've ever felt. My entire body shook because I have cerebral Palsy (cp) and I broke the side that is "paralized". You may think I wouldn't have felt it, but despite the paralisis, I do have some feeling in that leg, only exharated when I broke the limb. I never want to break a bone again.

Well I've never broke a bone in my entire life. But I do had a dislocated shoulder and sprang ankle too because I play soccer. But the worst thing that happened to me was when I broke 1 tooth while I was iceskating and other tooth a little moved. Trust me you don't want to be in my situation. I couldn't eat some of my favorites foods and all that and I felt pain for like 2 months and bleeding for 3 days. But now I'm OK after a visit to the dentist the day after I broke my tooth.

Hmm when I was in first grade, I was goofing around and fell and broke my elbow. Then when I was about fifteen I fell skateboarding and broke my wrist, although the break was not apparent at first. Actually, the break wasn't visible on x-rays for about a week. I ended up having two casts on. Then, back in March, I was pushed down some stairs and broke the other wrist. I didn't think it was even broken, but turns out it was. Breaking bones is not fun!
