what was your most painful injury?
Thought I'd ask a new question to liven up things.

Most immediate pain I ever felt was when I was sled riding down a hill and ended up wrapping myself around a tree. I had serious trouble breathing for several minutes after. The immense struggle to inhale was intense. Do not recommend.

For a long term pain, I broke my collar bone wrestling my junior year in high school. I became unconscious so I did not feel immediate pain. First trip in an ambulance. Doctor recommended I wear this figure 8 contraption that I put both arms into to keep my shoulders in proper position. Any slight movement caused pain that shot through my whole body. To this day this injury has caused me residual loss of motion and use of my arm, which while annoying, still can be painful if I move in the wrong way.

So tell me about yours.

RE: what was your most painful injury?
I have a two part story.

10th grade choir class. A couple of us were horsing around. I was pushed very lightly against the corner of a raised platform.
The impact hit my lower back and it was excruciatingly painful. I sat down but could not stand back up. I missed two years of baseball (I played but I sucked), football & track. My back improved somewhat and I was learning to live with some pain by the time I graduated. My doctor advised never to play contact sports again so I promptly played football my senior year.

Spring forward another year to College at BG.

Winter break 1980-81 in a small German community in Ohio named Coldwater. We drank a lot in celebration of something or other. We had decided to move on to the next bar a couple small towns away so we were all gathering back at the bar we were at. I was walking up the alley to the side door and saw my friend's car (Gremlin) with everyone but me in it. It was icy and as I approached I kicked a small rock off the alley, slipped and fell on my butt. My back was to the back of the car. They began backing up and partially ran over me. I foolishly didn't yell even though I could hear them speaking in the car and they could easily hear me. I tried to lift the car up so I could fit underneath......like I said, we were drinking thus the impaired judgement. My right ankle snapped and I was contorted into a position my back was not ok with. I heard them say they were backing over a garbage can (right next to me but really it was me). They pulled forward, I rolled out of the way and then they backed up again but faster this time. They noticed me as they went by and stopped.

I eventually got up into the car with them and we continued our bar hopping. At the next bar I could not move my leg so I stayed in the car with my girlfriend. No one mentioned the blood on my face from scraping against the underside of the car. Once she realized how bad I was, she retrieved everyone and brought me home.

I was trying to get to my bed and fell on the floor. My brother found me on the floor, bloody face, jacket torn apart and giggling. Went to the hospital a few hours later. Fractured bones in my ankle and some torn ligaments. Strangely enough, it seemed to correct my back issues. The ultimate adjustment. The ankle was not set correctly and I've had issues with it to this day.

I hurt my ankle forever but never had back problems again. I consider that a fair trade.

Nothing too major in my lifetime. Some livable back and neck injury from car accidents years ago and a broken arm from a horse trying to go over backwards on me.

One I remember very well was skiing at Lake Tahoe on a beautiful spring day over 30 years ago with my cousin. I decided to peel off the main slope and take off through the woods. There was more than 20 feet of snow on the ground, so the skiing was pretty easy. I didn't notice an access road cut across the hill until I was right on top of it. I took about a 15 foot drop straight down onto a flat road bed. My head came down and slammed into my knee. I remember lying on the ground with blood coming out of my mouth, for a minute or so, and I couldn't see. My vision came back after a while and I kept on skiing. Of course, being young and stupid, I didn't go to a doctor.

This probably explains my present mental condition.

RE: what was your most painful injury?
i guess it was spraining my ankle in auckland. it was our second day in new zealand, tossing frisbee. i couldn't exert pressure on the leg and had my buddies drag me back to the hostel. we got me examined at the hospital the next day in rotorua. they x rayed me, wrapped my leg up in one of those embolism stocking jobs, some pain pills and i didn't know how this was all going to work out from a financial standpoint so i said something to the doctor about some agreement the us had with nz regarding tourists in these situations. she shrugged and said i could go. i think before that we stopped by a kiwi factory and it was decided to leave me in the car while they toured the place

the pain pills were great. spent the rest of the trip able to hike and not being able to afford much

Well, I was shot point blank in the hand and abdomen. I had no major internal injuries in my abdomen but they had to amputate my hand. Honestly, my hand hurt so bad I didn't even realize I had a wound in my abdomen until a few minutes later. Destroyed the watch I was wearing too. Also, when you're waiting for an ambulance don't eat or drink anything. If you do you get the fun of having your stomach pumped and a catheter inserted at the same time.

Okay... that sounds extremely painful.

My worst was a dislocated clavicle playing a physical game of Flag Football.

RE: what was your most painful injury?
In college I ran into a tree while skiing in Breckenridge during spring break. I wanted to get onto a short trail to the next slope over, and the short trail was slightly uphill so I was gathering speed to be able to get all the way through the trail. Then I realized the cut was sharper than I had thought & that I'd hit this big tree. Instinct took over, and that meant lowering my shoulder to absorb the blow like I had done in football. Only thing is, the tree didn't move backwards when I hit it like a linebacker would have. My dumb ass actually tried to run over the 3-foot thick tree. Nothing permanent, but my arm was pretty useless for the next two days.

The worst injury I had was throwing out my back trying to roll over a 25-foot tall pine tree I had just cut down. Was on the ground for awhile, and couldn't move much for a week. My wife was furious because she had just given birth three weeks earlier via C-section, and I was hurt worse than her and couldn't help with the other kids.

But the most painful injury was a mere broken finger.

Our defensive back coach was a prick, and he hated me. WR's and DB's were practicing our routes. 5-yard hitch routes. He throw the ball as hard as he possibly could at me, running into the throw like an outfielder trying to nail a runner at home. I didn't know because my back was to him, and everyone else was getting normal passes. The ball arrived before I had completely turned around. Jammed my ring finger so hard it broke. Never had pain like that before or since.
