no but i had to do an ER shift once as an intern sort of and i remember i had to help lift up this old dude out of a bed that he had just blood-shat... it looked like black satan-vomit and smelled even worse... hope you get better soon - no surgery then?

one time i overshot to flat and broke my tailbone and it swelled up so much above my asscrack that the skin split from the swelling and i had like and extra two inches of crack for a little while.

i've definitely tacoed some rails before tho... fuck that shit. i suck at jibbing and im fucking done with it.

Were you wearing any kind of armour? This isn't being judgemental, just want to get an idea of how much damage you might still get if armoured up.

Is there effective body armor out there for internal damage like that in the abdomen? This is a serious question, since I've never seen anything like that for snowboarding.

Edit: Shit just Googled it, apparently there is. I wonder how helpful that would be though in that type of fall.

Hah I'm not too worried about it because you won't be seeing my ass on any rails anytime soon bro.

Hm, he didn't actually say if it was a taco or cab taco. Hey, OP, did you land face down or face up?

Holy crap, I don't even think my worthless Uni insurance even covers damage like that :blink: OP, I'm glad you survived!

I don't want to quit, but I don't want to die. No park for me, I reckon... and I really should stop reading this section of the forum.
