I Tore Right ACL & MCL in February of 2006. In July 2010 I broke my Fibula. Spend 6 weeks on Crutches after i broke my Fibula, Breaking the fibula was the more painful then tearing the ACL.
I've only broken my collar bone, which was horrible because I'd always wake up with my arm above my head, and moving it back was NOT fun...
I'm glad mine wasn't that bad, I may not have a phobia of hospitals, but surgery is never fun. Plus I would've been anxious the whole time, waiting to be told I had to go to the hospital
I broke both bones in my forearm but had amnesia and concussion too so I can't say I remember the pain. I've broken my big toe and I managed fine until I pulled the bed sheet across it at night. It nearly sent me through the roof. I'm concerned about my tail bone right now. I fell on it on Boxing Day down some stairs and its sorer today than it has been.
Oh dear. Do you know if you broke it? I've been thinking I've only bruised it as I'm getting about ok. It only hurts as I sit down and stand up and sneeze or cough. Just today its been sorer to one side a bit.
Oh Yowch! No I haven't bothered going to a doctor because there's nothing they can do anyhow.
I actually read somewhere that anti inflammatories slow down bone healing too.
Wow. I have a tub of either Arnica or Comfrey in my fridge too. I had both a one stage. You've just reminded me. Thanks a lot.
Ooh I've not heard of that. Comfrey is a plant that's properties encourage bone repair apparently.
Well, its in the fridge. If nothing else it will be cool :o)
Broke my left ankle and the proximal interphalageal joint of my left index finger. My ankle hurt worse but healed up nicely. My finger joint still doesn't bend all the way.
My left tibia...and both fibula..my.left fibula was the worst, as I broke it when my knee locked and I forced it strait. Not a fun "pop".
