I fractured my hard palate (the bone that runs along the top of your mouth--if you press the tip of your tongue to the roof of your mouth, the hardness is the hard palate) in a gymnastics accident. The doctors thought it might heal on its own, but almost eight years after the accident, I finally had to get a bone graft to really put it back together the way it was supposed to be.

I also had to get two teeth completely replaced, but that's another story.

*Winces*...do I really want to hear the story behind that injury?

Lovely. .

See some of you broke bones playing basketball or hockey. 90% of my dad's broken bones came from football.

Ah, sports...

I fell, headfirst, into a gymnastics vault.

stress fractures in both feet


from cheap shoes

It was more annoying than really painful, I limped around for a couple of weeks before I finally went to the doctor and found out what was wrong . . . then it was really painful

Me too. I wasn't much of a tomboy, and despite my rough life (school, relationships) I still have none *knocks wood*

I haven't broken anything...yet. Kind of surprising considering all the bike accidents I got in as a kid.

I haven't broken any bones but I have dislocated several.

*My elbow (can't remember which, I was 4)
*My right shoulder (I can't throw anymore and baseball's my fave sport)
*Both hips, though the dislocation of the right one was worse.

I have extremely loose joints and if I ever redislocate my right shoulder I have to have surgery....

I broke my left wrist when I was 11 or 12, and broke my ankle, which had to be rebroken and have multiple surgeries on when I was 19.
