Question What injuries have you had snowboarding?

I have only had a couple that relate to snowboarding. I broke 3 ribs 2 years ago, I could still ride through that pain. Last week broke right leg and tore 3 ligaments in my ankle requiring surgery, obviously I'm stuck on the couch not riding....
Guess I should add a couple of hairline fractured wrists, one for each side....

I've had many other injuries through life but that's it snowboarding......

I'll consider myself lucky with just a sprained wrist(few seasons ago) and a few bruises

Osteochondritis dissecans

I had to get scoped in the off-season to get it cleaned out and it's good as new now.

Hyper-extended elbow from a month ago still feels sketchy.

From current injuries to the oldest.

Right posterior elbow dislocation, severe bone/ligament/tendon/muscle bruising of the right hand, broken right hand, countless right shoulder dislocations, numerous left shoulder dislocations, tore something in my left knee most likely mcl, chipped the top of my hip bone and had a floating bone chip, partial dislocation of the right ankle, bruised heels, broken fingers, broken toes, broke right leg, ruptured spleen, dislocated right wrist, whiplash, 7 or 8 concussions, broken nose, chipped teeth, dislocated jaw, numerous bruised, smashed, slammed body parts, tailbone something or other, I think that's everything that I can remember. Spleen was by far the worst.

MCL sprain that's still bothering me 2 years later (the doctor I got sent to was crappy, and said I'd be fine / didn't need physical therapy... I was dumb for listening to him). Oh well.

Cracked a rib attempting a rail, pulled my groin landing on my back/ass(not exactly sure how that one happened...) a few sprained wrists, sprained-possibly fractured/cracked thumb-bent backwards over rail, full body weight, lost ~50% range of motion and pain for 'bout 2-3 months, didn't fully heal for 6. My right wrist and thumb(just the base knuckle) are easily injured now but that started when I was 17 playing soccer, otherwise I'm a fast healer and I don't bruise unless you hit me with a baseball bat.
