    Is just one thread enough or do you need a whole sub-forum and a thread each?

    On 2016 Oz snow, so belated acknowledgement.

    @Telemark Phat , tried to insert very large rock into brain via eyesocket, missed eyesocket and excercise failed.


    On 2016/17 OS Snow

    @smackies did something to some bones it looks like



    On 2017 Oz snow.

    @Donzah - bent foot

    @tele-whippet - hurt ankle & miss-placed head

    @SuskiQ double snapped achilles, surgical repair

    @Tanuki - bruised knee with brain.

    @Dippo Fractured Nose, cheek and eye socket,torn hamstring, ACL, 2 blood clots in calf and worst of all broken skis

    @mx_boarder - ACL

    @Ziggy Tore a shoulder muscle.

    Lol.
    Third time I've knocked myself out of the season early.
    This is no way as painful as tearing the muscles around the ribcage

    I got run over by a car Monday. Tried to stop it and went under the door.

    Feel like I hit the ground with no parachute. It dragged me for a bit.

    Took it in the feet, shins, knees, hips, ribs, shoulders, elbows, hand and head.

    Three separate hits to the head. Still feel concussed. Not sure how long between hit and realising I was lying in the driveway. Probably won't get day 50 in unless I just drive up and swipe my pass.

    The impact fatigue is full on. No fractures or breaks.

    Nah. A friends. It was heading for a road and could have caused an accident with another car. I had to try. No choice.

    Take it very very easy

    I got badly concussed earlier this year and i wasnt right for a few weeks in particular and it was maybe 6 weeks before i had moved on. I did things (basic stuff like work or thinking or not sleeping or looking after a family) i know now made my recovery take alot longer. Concussion is a very strange place. You can feel better and then bam you know you are not at all right.

    SuskiQs is a double snapped achilles, surgical repair. @skifree

    Touch wood I'm major injury free this year. Niggle here and there, easily treated.

    Sweet Jesus that's a nasty injury.
    Perisher, a few years back. I'd rather have broken ribs than torn intercostals - the ribs were way more tolerable.

    None at all, for the first time since I can remember! Unless you count a worn vertebra in the neck which has started causing chronic headaches and pain in the neck and right shoulder - but that's not really an injury, just old age.

    Its a struggle, can't have knee done until clots go. Need to be up and about to get the clots to go. Can't be up and about because of knee and hamstring. Its tough mentally more then anything being a very active person.

    When I first did it they thought it was a torn calf and black eye and I wasn't in any real pain. Wasn't till I got home and had a ultrasound they found clots. Got sent to hospital where CT scan found other injuries.

    I had 2 DVT's in my calf last year and was put on warfarin for 3 months, 22 blood tests later I got the all clear but still have residual pain from vascular scarring. It was mentally draining.
    So this year when I did my ankle I was put on Xarelto as an anticoagulant to prevent more clots - it is so much easier, no blood tests or dietary monitoring.
    Good luck again!

    Jeebers @Dippo thats nasty, glad you are still with us though!

    My worst injury so far skiing was a torn hammy, left a ultra black bruise on the back of my leg the size of a football, which I only noticed four days later when I got home. It was sore, and I couldnt walk, but I could ski, so I just ignored it.

    Had my first hospitalisation from the MTB this year though, 15 stitches was all. I have been really lucky, but as I get older I expect it must start running out hey.

    I did the whole clexane self injections for a week, that was awesome, not. Been on Xarelto for the past 9 weeks. Its a waiting game at the moment. Been having physio the whole time so I'm walking and have been told to start cycling now to help prior to surgery.

    I'm sadly profiting from this thread, @tele-whippet also had to make a purchase as a result of a crash. Wish the circumstances were better but happy to help in all instances!
