    What's the worst injury you've ever received?

    Personally, when I was in 1st grade, I was crawling under a table and there was a nail sticking out. It went in my eyebrow and there was blood everywhere. I had to get a couple stitches for this.

    not an injury as such but if we're comparing scars and stiches etc...i've had an operation on my hamstring and the cut goes from the crease of my bum cheek to about an inch above the back of my knee. a good 12 - 15 inches of staples :)

    Broken foot.


    Split eyebrow (six stitches).

    Out of the three the broken foot was the most annoying.

    Oh well, if we're going for medical stories...

    I had part of my lung removed in open-chest surgery. 12 inch long scar, broken ribs, pain for years after the operation.

    :cool: how long ago was the op and do you still get pain now? does it affect your cardio at all?

    About 2.5 years ago, and the pain is mostly gone aside from the occasional twinge or when I get a direct impact to the swollen area. Doesn't affect my cardio at all, I'm just lazy :p

    Topher allo!

    Split open my left knee when I was ten. Had a whole about the size of a 10p down to the cartilage! It was too big for stitches so had to let it heal naturally.

    Broke BOTH my arms in an accident as a blacksmith. As I fell to the ground I put my arms out to break my fall.

    My worst would be a bruised spinal cord.

    The most painful would be torn ligaments in my shoulder which I, in my stupidity, continued to train with for an hour after tearing them.

    Koyo, that just reminds me of the kickboxer who breaks his leg checking a kick and then goes to stand on it afterwards. Does not sound like fun at all.

    Saw that video and my ARMS started aching.

    Isn't the mind a wonderfull think? I blacked out and woke up in hospital stoned on pain killers.

    I've been pretty lucky so the worst I've had has been a dislocated toe from landing a jump in a kata wrong. Got up from the jump and felt something pressing on my big toe, looked down and the middle toe was a strange 'S' shape. Finished the kata and because it was the first dislocation it meant two hours sat in A&E waiting for them to x-ray it. Worst bit was that it happened at a different club that would be competing against my normal club at a competition a few days later. I still call sabotage :woo:

    Fractured Wrist (Both wrists, seperate times)
    Fractured Knee
    Fractured Ankles

    broke the clavicle playing football and then I broke it again after I fell off the couch in the middle of the night... which I was lying on to keep from rolling while I slept.

    Not my injury but when I was in a provincial greco tournament years ago my mate had both forearms broken when he was thrown with a supplex and did not wrap... had to repeat his last year of school again because he could not write (as well as almost anything else). Koyo's post brought back horrible memories ;' ).

    Biggest injury : torn knee : MCL, bruised ACL, just missed the meniscus (wrestling comp)
    otherwise the usual..bruised ribs, bruised hand (the bones were so bruised the medics said i was lucky to not even have a hairline fracture)
    Dislocated thumb: never healed right.
    Cut eyebrows, cut lip.

    not an injury per-se but i am lying in hospital right now recovering from an op to drain a peri-anal abscess. I can honestly say it is one of the worst problems i have ever had. I'm not looking forward to my motions tomorrow, although i'm thoroughly enjoying the morphine.:cool:
