Does this qualify:

Six broken ribs ( one completely broken off )
Split scapula ( shoulder blade )
Popped AC joint ( pushed back in on the hill )
Compressed T8 vertebrae ( looks like a wedge instead of square ish )
Torn shoulder muscles and tendons
Ruptured Kidney ( lacerated and pee'd blood for a few days )

All in the same accident :o . Still got bruising 2.5 months later, Doc says 3 months to go to heal :crazy:

I knew you'd bust yourself but that's an impressive list!
I got the broken ribs (motorbike crash - another motorbike running over me) and popped AC joint on MTB, they were bad enough in isolation...

my fractured tibial plateau is very lame in comparison - no metal work, no plaster (just a hinged brace), barely a blemish on skin, but proof that rocks are harder than bones. Am a bit of a fraud as have no pain :) , just the frustration of hobbling around on crutches for 4 more weeks :crazy:

Jesus. That's next level mate. Out of interest, what has the doc said re your scapula? I did mine last week, or so I thought. But it seems it's an old injury I've been carrying for a while, blissfully unaware. I guess atm it just feel like tightness in the back of my shoulder.

Here a couple of pics from a few weeks ago when my armpit got skewered by a stick, leaving a two centimeter hole. Second pic was taken when they went out of the room, just after they stitched it up.

Funnily enough, the shirt was fine.

They stuck their finger in to see how deep it went.

Broke my wrist and banged up my shoulder on Ridgeline on Saturday. No metal, just plaster and 2 re-sets.

Cheers to the guy who stopped and offered his phone!

Scapula - rest rest and more rest. When he realised I was only going to take the rest thing so far he said " be careful, reduce strain on affected areas and stay shiny side up :D " ). It is a time thing like most of my injuries :blink: . I am running through NWD and Earthed DVD's fast :D

Sounds much like the list that caused me to hang up my motocross gear @ 40 years of age. Haemotoma from ankle to neck down one side and bruising that took a month to appear. Have to recommend Arnica for bringing out bruising. Was not much showing but I hurt like hell a month after the crash and visiting with a friend, she handed me a tube to try - was black and blue shortly afterwards and then started to heal. Spent the first couple weeks sleepinmg in a Lay-z-boy as couldn't lay down with the ribs

2weeks ago.

I am so hard I didn't even notice this until I got home and carried on riding.

My ankle got tangled up in big chainring during a stack. My sock was miraculously left intact, and I was too preoccupied with missing skin from my leg to notice this. I only spotted it when I was taking shoes off and found sock to be excessively wet. 6 stitches.
