    Motorcycle accident = fractured skull, hyper extention of right knee ( required 2 surgeries and many screws), lots of road rash, broken fingers.

    Tranny fell on right shoulder pulling muscel from the bones = 1 surgery ( But wife made me :mad:)

    And just some minor broken bones and stitches here and there. :eek:

    Double Hernia surgery. Then, 10 years later I had to have it re-done!
    A couple years after that, I tried to lift a fridge, and tore my bicep tendon off.

    Never had to stay overnight, but I've had two knee surguries. The first one was for just an ACL (I was 13 at the time...tore it when I was 12) and the second one was ACL and meniscus (was 15.)

    All because of playing soccer. I really miss playing too, even after it put my ass on crutches for like half a year total.

    Home fresh from vacation June 17th, 2008 (went on a cruise to the Bahamas) I was scheduled to go back to work on Wednesday. Intense stomach pain on Tuesday night but went to work Wednesday anyways, 12 hour shift! Thursday morning didn't feel any better so by Thursday afternoon I finally got a ride to Urgent Care.

    From Urgent care was highly recommended to go to ER immediately. Went to ER and was diagnosed with a appendecitis. So 9:30 p.m. at night I come out of the surgery room with no more appendix, and yeah by the way it was ruptured already. Man I hate going to doctors or hospitals but had I waited some more time I could have died.

    So word of advice, if you ever get a bad gut pain on your lower right side of your abdomen area, see a doctor immediately.

    Totaled CBR 1000 cost me two pins in the left knee with an exposed compound fracture. Shattered left ankle, broken collar bone, three ribs on the right, dislocated left shoulder and a pretty good concussion. Along with a few broken fingers it was a fun summer that year. As for recent years mostly just the concussions and ringing in the ears that hitting IED's bring. Maybe that's why I forget so much, wait what am I typing?? JK. It's amazing what the body can take when it somes down to it.

    You don't have any wisdom!! Har har!! And chipmunk cheeks too! (laugh)

    I had my wisdom teeth (all 4) taken out many many years ago (when I was a kid). So I've been lacking wisdom ever since (ask my husband, he'll agree. :D)

    Other than that.... I was rear-ended pretty hard in my jeep in 03. Concussion & small skull fracture where I have two silver dollar sized titanium plates in my head.

    Can't remember much else .... some small medical procedures, tendenitus, stitches in various places, etc.

    Ah, yes. I had my left hand "pinky" finger severed and re attached. Didnt think it was considered "major" being as it is a "pinky" finger. :eek:
