1-4-13 Question of the Day!!

Have you ever broken a bone?
If so, did you have to have a cast or have surgery to repair it?

I broke my foot a few years back -- one of those "It'll heal in 6 weeks if we cast it and a month and a half if we don't" kind of breaks. So no cast. It still aches when the weather changes suddenly.

No, except maybe a toe, which didn't need any help since there's not much they can do for that anyway.

I broke my left shoulder. It was just taped up and I had to wear a sling for 2 months...then PT for 8 weeks....no surgery since it wasn't my prominent arm.

I broke my baby toe. Just taped it to the other toe. Wore my crocks since I couldn't get my shoe on. At home I used a walking boot.

I broke my elbow when I was 8 and fell off our horse. I had a cast for either 6 or 8 wks, can't remember. What I do remember is that it sucked because it happened right before school got out, so I had to stay out of our pool for most of the summer! (This was in MI, where the swimming window is not long. )

Yes, my tailbone twice. Obviously no cast for that! LOL! And no surgery. It healed on it's own.

It's possible I broke something in my foot or toe once, but I didn't go to the doctor to find out. I was a teen...it healed fast.

I've broken a few bones - most notably, most of my toes. I don't remember ever having a cast, though. Most of my major bone injuries were sprains.

So far, no. And, I'm knocking on wood so I don't jinx myself.

I broke my arm when I was 2 years old. My Mom and Dad said it took both of them plus 2 nurses to hold me down so the Doctor could put a cast on it. I fell down 2 steps while trying to drag a doll buggy up some stairs.

I broke a bone in my toe when I was a kid. They put it in plaster, only in later years we found out that they put the wrong foot in plaster!

At the amazing beach at Acadia National Park, Maine as part of our Bagman Days trip, which starts with north eastern America and eastern Canada. The trip report continues for our Baltic cruise.
