Getting a trophy for winning 2/3rds of a tournament is dumb.
I've torn ligaments and broken my leg. The break was about 1/2 as painful and the recovery was twice as quick for me.
That was the weirdest thing I've ever seen.
Do you still have pain from the break? I had a compound fracture in my arm a few years ago and still have pain where the plate is.
I had a clean fracture of my left fibula when I was very young. Almost 20 years ago, but I remember my leg just giving out and being in a ton of pain. About 45 minutes later once it was immoblized and stuff I mostly remember just being scared. The only time it really a hurt a ton is when they had to move it some to wrap the cast.
It sucked a LOT. But nothing like what this poor sap had to go through.
I dislocated my right ankle and cracked the tibia at the joint, the pain from the dislocate was much worse than the break, when they put the joint back in place some of the pain went away. Had two subsequent chip fractures in the same ankle, now I can basically roll my ankle and keep walking. My ortho says I'm going to have arthritis problems big time, and it does bother me every now and then.
only when the barometer drops suddenly. I can predict rain with pretty good frequency. Of course, the break was in my knee and knees aren't as typical as a long bone break.
fml just saw it from facebook when trying to avoid it wtf is wrong w/ people
Just watched it for the first time. Bad choice, I feel nauseous.
agreed, altho I'm not sure why oral is getting downvotes in this thread for posting the link with appropriate warnings.
I usually don't like to see this stuff, but it was just so unnatural and unusual that I had to look.
In high school, I went up for a shot, came down awkwardly and dislocated my knee. All my weight came crashing down on my arm and I snapped my forearm in half.
I was not at all concerned about the break in my arm at the time, as popping my knee out of place was MUCH more painful. Had to have a rod put in my arm... the only lingering effect is that I can't turn my palm upward all the way (like sticking your hand out for money). Can only turn it about 3/4 of the way.
I'd say its unlikely to recover 100% from a break like he had. He may be able to come back and play competitively... but there will almost surely be some type of lingering effect, right?
Just got back from my wrist surgeon and asked him about how that could happen. His opinion was that it had to have been a "pathological fracture," which basically means something was very wrong in his bone, like a cyst, cancer or infection.
Yeah, it was pretty brutal. I didn't have any bone pierce the skin like Ware, but it was bent almost into a V shape. I still have a pretty gross scar/hole in my elbow where they put the rod in. Surprisingly, I'd describe it as a dull pain from what I remember. It wasn't sharp... unlike the knee, which was excruciating. My cast went from my hand to my shoulder, with my elbow bent. That sucked.
For the record, I made the shot.
I actually had a friend text me this exact statement this morning and what I told him is that you just have to focus on the job at hand. You have to be able to postpone your emotions until afterwards.
Personally, open fractures don't bother me as much as open head wounds. We actually see the Tib/Fib fracture quite a bit in car accidents where the dash/pedals collapse onto the legs.
Similar situation with me except it was the entire weight of someone else falling on my arm. Had the rod and a plate put in and had the rod taken out a few months later. Can only rotate my palm about 3/4 of the way and if I carry something heavy with that arm, I have pain where the plate and screws are.
Up on crutches ... onions!
In one of the more gruesome injuries you will see on a basketball court, Louisville guard Kevin Ware severely fractured his leg in Sundays Elite Eight game against Duke. UPDATE: Monday, Apr...
That makes my dislocated ankle, which was attached my skin only and dangling lifelessly, look like a fucking picnic. I can only imagine how much pain he was in.
I shy away from using the terms warrior and solider in regards to sports when we have actual soldiers protecting our freedoms and athletes just play a game.....but this kid is a warrior. What an amazing teammate and person.
So the Tiffle's method of courtship is out for you?
That's why the Lord gave us two hands.
I didn't realize Kevin Ware had a white leg. Now this injury makes a lot more sense.
Had this type of injury 3/17/65 in a truck accident while at Maryland. The bone when set knits quickly, and the kid should be okay to play again next season. Horrifying to see a bone sticking out of your leg. This brought back unpleasant memories as the docs thought I had a concussion so would not give me anything for pain. The injury ocurred at 3PM and I did not get to the operating room until 11 am the next day. NOTHING I experienced before or since hurt like that...!
I really feel for Kevin Ware!
