Whats the worst injury you've sustained?

What is the worst injury you have sustained? (tennis or not)

The two most painful injuries I have had both came from tennis. A couple of months ago, I stressed fractured my left shin, but let me just say, that was painless compared to rolling over my ankle! That just happened today, and damn, I didn't think that that would hurt as much as it did!!!!

Henin-Hardenne sucks!

Congrats Alicia Molik on your Bronze medal, and Mardy Fish, on your Silver Medal!!!!

Good Luck: Safin, Fish, Roddick, Pavel, Ferrero, Molik, Capriati, Mandula, and Sharapova!!!!!

Re: Whats the worst injury you've sustained?

How about a car accident putting me in a wheelchair? I was stupid enough to drive with a broken leg. Good thing it's temporary.

Re: Whats the worst injury you've sustained?

broken ulna (arm): fell off jungle gym in second grade

broken finger: from catching a baseball wrong in sixth grade

head wound: a shelf fell on my head while I was sleeping (moral of story -- don't sleep under a shelf! )

bad ankle sprain: from tennis, coming down after jumping for an overhead

I slipped on a chip on the floor in Mcdonalds, my tray of food and milkshake that went flying was least of my worries as i actually fractured my elbow !

Re: Whats the worst injury you've sustained?

Sustained at the Australian Open this year when I fell down 3 steps of Court 3 during the Sjeng Schalken vs Jurgen Melzer match. Bjorkman Girl insists it was because Melzer was in the middle of a shirt change when I walked in, but I honestly didn't see the players until after I fell!

I twisted both my ankles and whacked the bone behind my right ear on a chair in front. My left ankle was particularly bad and I couldn't walk for about 3 days... it actually flared up again yesterday because of the cold weather. This apparantly means I'll probably get arthritis in it later on

My other worst injury was in 1994 when I got a badly ingrown toenail and went in for surgery to get the whole big toenail removed. The stupid surgeon only removed a portion of the nail instead and dressed it badly so the bandage all stuck to the nail. I couldn't get out of bed for a week because any slight movement of the foot put my whole body in agony and when the nail did grow back I had a massive growth underneath it which has only gone away in the last couple of years with the help of a podiatrist.

Re: Whats the worst injury you've sustained?

ankle sprain from running. I could only walk by my stick, and it was always painful and tortured me. The worst is I couldn't wash my foot for a whole week, because of the ointment!!

Conan is sorry about the resulting injuries, mattf, but that might be one of the funniest lines Conan has read in a long time.

Conan accepts that paper cuts are part of the job, however painful they are. Conan's most painful injury was a fractured wrist that he continued to play rugby, not knowing it was fractured. Conan has also broken his nose, a finger and has more scars than he cares to mention.

I'm sorry to hear that, but hopefully the food was still wrapped in paper and you were able to follow the "five-second rule..."
