|Simply^Ride||At least your not hooked to an IV, ensure is ok the taste starts to get annoying after a while. But for a few weeks it shouldn't be that bad. Good luck with your recovery.|

So what, your feeding yourself with an IV?
I have to say that in the video it doesn't look like the accident was that bad.

heeeey, let's keep the surgery train rollin . i was doing some mushroom mashing in the BC, and had a sketchy landing. my board shot my knee into my chin, which split my chin open (8 stitches), gave me a concussion, chipped a tooth, and broke my jaw. i had surgery on it and now i'm sitting here with a wired shut jaw for a few more weeks. best part is we got the whole thing on video.
YouTube - at least i could board away...
so now i look like this.....

One major fracture and one hairline fracture. Everyone was trying front flips all day and landing on their back out of my group of friends except me, then I finally decide I'll try one, so I go for the jump, speed check a bit, throw myself, make the full rotation and land and ride away. Everyone is all excited except me, because I knew I landed too hard and pressure cracked my ankle which had just gotten out of a cast that november (this was last year) so I decide I'll just ride the rest of the mountain since something about getting thrown on a sled and sped up a mountain very jerkily just never seemed too helpful for me. Me and everyone go into the lodge to check it out and its already swollen out of my boot which I barley get off, so I call up my parents and have them bring up my crutches and air cast and to the hospital I go, I get there and they tell me I refractured my growth plate and badly fractured my tibia (?) and there goes my spring shredding.

|buggravy||I wish it was a cooler story, but.....I took repeated falls in super icy conditions (read: couldn't hear my ipod over the sound of my board going over the ice) onto outstretchted arms. Previously partially torn rotator cuff became fully torn rotator cuff. Having surgery in 2 weeks.|

Share your battle scars and horror stories. What were you doing, what went wrong, final result? Pictures are encouraged.
Anyway, this happened to me about 2 weeks ago. Went to nose slide a hand rail, landed sketchy on some ice, broke my nose in four places, had surgery last thursday.
