    Hey Folks

    So my little boy comes home the other day and advises us one of his school mates has broken his ankle in 2 places playing on some school play equipment. I didn't even think anything of it until my other half says "your lucky it wasn't x" - said because we are going in 4 weeks and any injury would of course be a spanner in the works (especially a major one) and she is right - Yikes:eek: another thing for this darksider to worry about as well as possible snow conditions :D

    I have heard all sorts of stories about injuries ON the trip (like broken legs first day etc.) but I wondered about injuries BEFORE the trip?

    The kids have been to one of those skyzone (lots of tramps etc.) places a couple of time recently are were likely to be going again before we go and now I am worried (although the other half reckoned I was more of a candidate to hurt them self than the kids LOL).

    Lets hear your stories :)

    It is one of my perennial worrywart pre-departure concerns. I am such a panic merchant that I consciously scale down risky activity a couple of weeks before departure. Avoiding "risky" activity can be as minor as choosing not to walk on rough bush tracks and sticking to footpaths.

    Years ago my father organised our inaugural bushwalk, an Easter trip from mt Howitt to Hotham. he fell down our back steps night before departure.....looked like broken ankle but X-rays suggested ok even though it was swollen like a balloon, so he bandaged it up, good foot in a walking boot, dodgy foot into some other shoe that sort of fitted and did the walk! we carried most of his gear though.

    My mogul skier dislocated his shoulder 2 weeks before we went to Japan to ski. Irony is he did it at water ramp practicing stuff so he would be safe on snow. And would never have done it on snow because his stock caught in the meanies. . Water ramp in Aus gggrrr - one of life's unpleasant necessities.

    I kinda reckon that might have been a godsend LOL (not a big fan of test type cricket - my little boy does cricket training and I am dreading if he continues to the level where he has to do full days/weekends etc. - just not my thing but if it was like 20/20 that wouldn't be too bad ;)).

    Yeah @Legs Akimbo - never really given it much thought prior to my other half making that comment and thus was interested in other peoples thoughts and stories. I guess as snow sports have some inherent/associated risks its accepted that stuff could happen on the trip but if you had booked a holiday and then broke your leg doing something stupid prior you would be pretty gutted (as you would if it happened doing something completely benign like tripping when taking out the trash).

    Hey @GS - way to go to your old man toughing it out for you kids (hope he milked it :D)

    Hey @skichanger - ouch. They ever do any bag stuff in oz (I know some places in Japan have setups - wondered how it compared to water - assume easier at least)? He still ski on that trip? Arm/shoulder stuff you can still get away with (albeit just have to take it easy).

    I locked legs in flight & landed on my tailbone in a martial arts competition a week before my first ski trip. I was booked in for snow boarding lessons but I couldn't sit down without damaging my coccyx even more so I swapped for 2 planks.

    It was fate ;)

    Bag jump - not for moguls and I have not heard of the aerialists doing it either. They reckon they cause knee injuries or something like that. It is not like on snow where you have a slope to land on and ski away.

    The injury was on the ramp because of the meanies - same as the plastic things they have on lift entries. He got an edge fell and the stock, attached to his arm, caught in them. Lesson learned , don't put the straps around your wrist at water ramp. But the same injury is possible on a bag jump.

    He was back on the trampoline, with arm in sling in 2 days. He had over month before the first event in Japan, But crashed and missed the next 2 events and then competed in another 2 events. Skied ordinarily, understandably, so was not a great outcome. But at least we had not organised the USA camp that season.

    He could still ski reasonably aggressively anywhere but on the moguls course. It is a pretty demanding thing to ski bumps, jump, land almost in the bumps and be balanced for the next bumps all at about 30kph.

    My +1 ran into a parked car on his bike doing an Adventure race 3 weeks before we headed off on a 2 week ski trip. Initial thoughts were fractured wrist and torn rotator cuff. Turned out to be neck injury. Some intensive physio meant he wasn't really restricted in his skiing, though I had to haul the luggage around until we arrived. He was recovered enough to do it on our return though :).

    PB did his ACL playing Rugby 2 months before a ski trip to Japan. Was sidelined.

    #3 cub has a long list.
    * spiral tib/fib fracture playing school rugby the day after selection in his first u16 club nationals team at 13yrs old. Did not go.
    * food poisoning and hospitalisation the day before leaving for State Schoolboys. He left a day late and played his first game having eaten only one meal of broth in 3 days.
    * badly sprained ankle from jumping the locked fence to get in to train (whole team did) a week before the next 16 Nationals.
    * gouged eye - whole eyeball red/ black eye one week before u18 Nationals.

    #4 cub
    * suspected scaphoid fracture the day before leaving for u16 nationals at school rugby. Left with a thermoplastic splint taped on but improved quickly so it was just a sprain.

    My nephew fractured his ankle a few weeks before a planned ski trip. They postponed it to Easter.

    I broke my tailbone four days before leaving on a two-week road trip to Alice Springs/Uluru. Still went. Most uncomfortable holiday ever!

    Our No.2 fell very hard on the court in her netball final a couple of years back. After some ice and some strapping and still in pain, she was advised by the coach (and us) to sit out the rest of the game. After about 10 minutes, she said it wasn't too bad, and really wanted to play. So out she went again. After the match, off to the doc etc. x-rays, result - fractured forearm. 2 weeks later we were in Queenstown NZ. She skied with her fibreglass cast (from knuckles to below elbow), no poles and a man mitten over her cast hand. Legend!!!!

    In future see if you can get a thermoplastic removable cast. They're outstanding!
    I found it easier to manage, no issues with 'cast stink' or itching, able to remove to wash, can tighten as swelling goes down making it more effective at splinting the bone, and not quite as bulky - I wore my normal gloves. I also got out of the cast 2 weeks earlier than expected - probably also due to the bone healing diet and supplements, but I think the cast helped, and the fact it could be removed and replaced easily meant it didn't stay on for an extra 2 weeks just in case.

    Tripped over while jogging next to novice female on little Honda trail bike while teaching her how to ride for first time. Shoulder charged the rock hard ground, heard a popping noise, had a very sore shoulder just 7 weeks out from Japan trip.

    Returned from farm and X-rays next day revealed broken shoulder blade. Rested, and did gentle exercise where possible. Skied very carefully for first week and it gradually improved, so all was good.

    Luckily I had enough time to almost recover. Much more careful pre-trip these days.

    A couple of stories.

    I went rock climbing the day Princess Diana died. Mum told me later I was NUTS - as I was flying out to work my first ski season not long after! no injury but i have certainly thought twice bout dangerous activities prior to a big trip!

    Booked a trip to NZ many years ago. Kept bugging the friend I was going to get travel insurance - she didn't want to. Conceded eventually but did not see any need prior to departing.

    She broke a small bone in her foot 2 days before we left in a drunken nightclub incident. I was too furious to get the full story.

    Anyway if SHE had insurance we would have both been covered and been able to get full refunds on the trip.

    So we went. WORST HOLIDAY ever.

    She was in pain and on crutches. Did not want to go far from the hotel and I had to negotiate how many days I was allowed to ski on my holiday and she gave me grief every day I did ski!

    Well never travel with anyone again who doesn't get insurance!

    Same here. Good excuse for me to say to MrsH when stuff needs lifting "My Love better get HacJR to do that"
    :)

    Doing some dry land practice just the other day eight weeks out from leaving I had my slant board on the floor and before I got into my boots stubbed the two toes next to my big toe on the board after I put my glasses on to see the laptop. The swelling has gone but the middle one is purple back under the nail to the joint, the one next to the big toe not quite as bad.

    It means I haven't been able to get out with the dog on our circuit which is part of my getting some fitness, about 50mins of power walking uphill and down dale at about 2200ft ASL.

    But: she'll be right on the night!

    Can add to this thread now.. its been a bad year for us. Have had 2 friends out before their trips with injuries. Now 2 weeks out from ours it appears I've fractured my middle and ring fingers from a stupid stupid crash on the pushy. Id even been refraining from proper MTBing our friend did hers that way after christmas. Wont be stopping me at this point, I've got 3 finger mittens to manage any splinting :)

    Oh dear ^^ :-(

    I cut my finger on one of the glass fish bowl things that you would put business cards in at a conference...

    The stitches came out the day before I flew out.

    Our canadian friend (female) was ice skating about 4 days before her family and ours were headed to Thredbo about 10 years ago. Being Canadian, she's good at skating, but being Canadian she wasn't used to how rough the ice can be on an Oz rink. Her half-twist-with-backwards-landing ended up flat on her back on the ice with a busted shoulder.

    The rest of her family came along anyway (+1 + 2 kids) and she dragged her sorry self along. So we had a caterer for the trip!

    She hasn't skied or skated since. Rather sad. But she still comes along on the ski trips and cooks for us all, so it's not all bad!!!

    Wow...10 years and no return to either sport...
    Physical limitations, psychological barrier or just changed priorities over the recovery period?

    Psychological I think. And her fitness went down in inverse proportion to her weight. She keeps saying "I ought to get some exercise, lose some weight and join you guys up on the hill" but she's well into her 50's and I seriously doubt it'll happen now.

    Shame really. She was a competent if unspectacular skier and a damn good skater.

    Lucky she can cook for a large group and always manages to bring a new card game each year so we do like having her along!

    Now that the trip is nearly over, happy to add to this thread!

    Five years ago, 4 week trip booked for Canada (Revelstoke, Kicking Horse, Big White and one weeks heli-skiing for hubby). Five weeks out, he was diagnosed with severe cervical spinal stenosis, so instead of ski trip, big operation and months of recuperation.

    Last year, hiking holiday in Norway with local friends booked for August, 2 days out I am admitted to hospital with acute diverticulits, no clearance to fly for weeks, so trip cancelled.

    This year, heli-skiing re-booked for hubby (this week), so one week in Revelstoke and then him off to Cariboos with CMH and me to Big White with friends. Three weeks out, provisional diagnosis of conjunctival melanoma (him), but luckily not correct, so we made it at last!!!! Yay!!! So despite the below average conditions in BC, we have had a great holiday and I can't wait to meet up with him in Vancouver tomorrow and hear all about the heli-skiing week. I am so pleased that he finally fulfilled a bucket list adventure and we managed to get away. :D

    So ah... reviving this old thread...

    I am just quietly freaking out that i have a stress fracture in my foot 5.5 weeks till we fly to Europe!

    :(

    Ultra sound and xray referral for tomorrow.

    Told Dr about the trip - certainly didn't say anything to make me feel better... was a bit "hmm oh really........."

    Shit!!!

    Just my after hours GP right now...

    No idea how I did it - i don't think you do with a stress fracture.

    GP was all - do you ever just get sharp pain whilst lying in bed? Um yes...

    foot has been weird for months... including the bed thing mentioned above.

    Tonight i couldn't bear weight in the foot of my foot - i ie pushing off the toes while walking

    And then my toes went all numb - still are. you know that weird feeling when you touch the side of you face after the dentist??

    Oh bugger @Ozgirl !!
    That's not good.

    But the good news is, if it's been a chronic problem then with a bit of treatment and taping and antionflammatories you might be ok to ski and walk around.

    I could barely walk leading up to Chile, but was fine while there. It came back after I got home. Orthotics helped.

    Hmmm, sounds like it. Nevertheless, you never know, also sounds like nerve pain around the area. Get the Xray tomorrow- no later than that, and see ortho specialist if there is a fracture. ASAP. And keep me posted

    Yeah he said nerve as well... he said nerve first... then it seemed to move towards stress fracture.

    Whats the implications of that??

    I have plantar fasciitis at the moment, every step is pain in the a@se. Getting lots of physio, and wearing cushioning insoles. You never know with feet. Fingers crossed it's not a fructure Oz!

    Not sure, but the Xray will show it clearly. I'd get to a specialist asap, just in case. Sports physio if appropriate. Can improve a lot in 5 weeks

    @sara777 I had a really nasty run with PF. The pain clinic wanted to do a nerve block so I simply couldn't feel the pain any more..ummm...I don't think so buddy! I'd had it to one degree or another for decades, but excruciating for 2 or 3 years. Initially steroid injections into the foot helped, then they did nothing.

    What worked?
    I got acupuncture from a Chinese medicine fellow at a local health point massage place. Needles in the sole of my foot, my Achilles and my calves. 3 times a week and he attached electrodes to the needles that pulsed for half an hour also.
    I also had deep tissue massage prior to the treatment and in between when I reduced to once a week acupuncture.
    It hurt like hell!
    I've had 4 babies and this pain was worse than childbirth, albeit over in an hour.

    It was fixed for the first time in decades. Occasionally it flares up now but it's usually connected to tight calves and Achilles so hitting them with the deep tissue massager and wearing orthotics for a few days usually puts it back in its box.

    Thanks for sharing @LMB :) Deep tissue massage is part of the physio. Had it for about 2-3 weeks, long way to go I guess.. i don't want to take painkillers as it would only mask the problem. But hey, might try acupuncture! Nothing to lose. :emoji_beer:

    It was a game changer for me Sara.
    But it was intensive.
    3 times a week.



    Ohhh and none of my doctors drew the connection between Lupus and PF. My podiatrist was the one to tell me it is almost universal among those with active Lupus. Ergo: get the Lupus back in its box, fix the ongoing inflammation in the feet = long term solution.

    I like to get sick a couple of weeks before going on holiday just to reduce the odds of it happening on holiday

    For the first year ever Im really starting to worry before a month skiing in Europe in Feb.
    I currently have a broken toe and bark knocked off all up my left side after coming off my mtb a couple weeks ago. I still cant wear anything other than my oldest runners because its so tender.
    What's concerning Im coming off every couple weeks, doing some harm to myself.
    I've ridden mtb bikes almost daily for over 20 years for fitness and to keep reflexes sharp so I can hit the ground running when I go skiing.
    Age 50 next year is coming and Im not as good now as I used to be and its really playing on my mind.

    When I was 20 a sprained thumb took a day for the swelling to go down and to stop hurting
    When I was 30 it was 3 days
    When I was 40 it took a week
    When I was 50 it took a fortnight
    Now I'm 60+ and it takes 6 weeks.
    Getting old isn't for wimps!

    Many moons ago..................heading off the NZ.
    Kids where young (7 & 10).
    Car packed to drive to airport. Everyone except me in the car ready to go........locking up etc.
    Get to driver side door and one child decided to do me a favour, and open the door................top corner of the door belting into my cheek, producing a nice 2cm slice, just below my eye. Blood pouring out.
    Back up stairs, grabs some steri-strips, a pack of cotton wool balls, ice pack and off we go.
    Look liked I had just done 10 rounds in the boxing ring at the airport check in. :D

    Not an injury but +1 found himself in ICU three weeks before we were due to fly out to Japan last year. Needless to say, the trip got cancelled.

    At least with my current broken foot, we didn't have a trip planned!

    We have a rule... No MTBing for 6 weeks before an OS trip. I broke a finger 3 weeks out and our friend fell of hers 6 weeks out and ironically got skiers thumb and couldn't go. Years ago we were also doing an adventure race 3 weeks out from a trip and the hubby hit a parked car at speed. 3 weeks of jntense physio to mange some nerve damage (as opposed to what we thought was torn rotator cuff and fractured wrist initially) and although I had to carry the luggage, by the time we had 2 weeks there he was hauling the luggage on our return.

    Offical word is stress fracture - 3 weeks in a boot. Apparently she'll be right as rain for a ski trip in 5 weeks!
