    You being serious? Wow!!!!
    My back wasn't as bad as it sounds as it was a compression fracture so it was out of hospital and hobbling round after a week. I broke my scapular on the first day of a weeks downhilling at bpw but it didn't show up on the x-Rays so I rode the rest of the week on it but I only found out 2 weeks later when I went back to hospital. Collar bone and ribs were on bikes too.I came fairly close to breaking my ankle last year when I high sided on a track day at blyton but somehow my boots saved me. I've had 2 concussions and septic arthritis in my elbow too, which was probably the worst of the lot.

    It was my scapular that didn't show up at first as the fracture was tiny, and because they were Welsh doctors. Apparently they're quite hard to break without damaging anything else in the shoulder so I was lucky really. Clavicle was at a different time, that was obviously broken as it looked like a house roof. It didn't hurt much at the time but battered for the next few weeks

    Given my complete lack of coordination and clumsiness I think it's a miracle that I've never really properly injured myself before! Had a close call on a field trip a few weeks ago but was saved by my rucksack.

    Luckily for me I have lived for nearly 20 years and have not so far broken any bone in my body

    I think that is quite the achievement for me considering how clumsy I am !

    I would have thought most people have.

    I have broken my left arm twice. My toe. My right foot. Broke a finger once too.

    Surprisingly not! I have had stitches though from smashing my chin into a wall once.

    No, I've only fractured bones and that was my ribs from excessive coughing when I had pneumonia. Didn't even know it was possible to fracture your ribs from that. I thought I had just pulled a lot of muscles until I got a xray done

    I've had a deliberate jaw dislocation but no broken bones, surprisingly. I've crashed my bike at 40mph down a hill, lucky one that, and have had some serious whacks in sailing, but it's all been good

    With how clumsy i am it feels like a miracle that the worst i've done is manage to sprain my neck and get tendinitis in my knee.

    Never broken a bone, but I absolutely demolished the joints in my left pinky finger.

    The great thing about breaking a bone is that you can set the bone and it will heal, but when you disintegrate a joint (and I'm not kidding, the one of the joints was broken into 6 or 7 pieces) that **** doesn't heal.

    As such, my left pinky finger now doesn't bend properly and it will never heal .

    EDIT: Accidentally quoted somebody, sorry for the notification .
