this is not going to go well. it's 29'C outside.
tell me stories of bad breaks and sprains.
Bounced the ball too hard.
A couple of years ago, with added ligament and cartilage damage. Not fun. Had a full leg cast on it for a while... fucking HELL that weighed a tonne. Then that came off, some surgery, lots of hydrotherapy, ughhhh. But I got this cool/awful robocop leg brace for a while. Think I've still got it somewhere.
When I finally realised I could run for the first time in two years I had a little cry.
Wasn't remotely prepared for just how much my left leg muscles wasted away, baring in mind I was physically fit back then (football referee, national league baseball). Never really got back there (yet) and doubt I ever will. Just happy to be able to dash after a dog/bus/ball/closing door now.
Weird really, cos both my parents dislocated their left knees in unrelated accidents.
Kinda miss having really tanned legs though. :')
Good luck with the army, sheeldzy. x
Don't know why I didn't see it coming. Anyway, the x-ray showed I had a hollow bone (monoplastic fibrous dysplasia, innit) and so I had my arm in one of those shit orange/beige soft sling things for 6 months.
Then they did an operation to fix it which involved sticking GIANT FUCKING NEEDLES of hydrocortisone into the bone under general anaesthetic. Then they forgot to give me painkillers when I came to. Fuck you, Monklands Hospital.
to my wrist :'''(
For some reason, it was uncool to have a front brake on your BMX. Mine broke and I didn't bother fixing it.
Predictably the back one broke when I was riding down an alley way and I smashed into the A-shaped barrer at the bottom.
I had both arms in plaster, held up by a sling that went round my neck.
My two mates, Graham and Phil told everyone at school that my mum had to wipe my arse and wank me off. The first bit was semi-plausible but untrue. But I'm still known in some circles as the lad whose mum wanked him off when he broke his arms.
I saw a young girl last week, 10 or so, in a wheelchair with both legs in full leg plasters, held akimbo by a bar or something. Can't comprehend how shitty it must be to lose the use of half your limbs at once. :(
