    Woo, broken ankle club! I busted my right ankle in my martial arts class two or three years back. I busted my fibula, tibia and talus simultaneously - they all broke along the same plane as my ankle rotated. My surgeon said he'd never seen anything like it. If they put you in a cast, make sure to do your physical therapy when it comes off. You don't want to end up walking all lopsided! I didn't pay enough attention to it when I got out of my cast/splints - I retained a lot of my mobility so my doctors didn't emphasize PT as much as they maybe should have. Now two or so years later my knee and lower back are all screwy because I'm still favoring my right side slightly. Take it from me; it's much easier to fix if you're proactive!
    Get well soon!

    Of course! It's almost summer right?

    I did that a number of times as a kid cos I was into skateboarding. I never quite broke it (well, I never went to the doc anyway to find out if it was broken) but I ruined a good month of my summers more than a few times. My right ankle bone sticks out funny now compared to the left so maybe it did break at some time and I just treated it as a regular bad sprain?

    I hope you heal quick and get to enjoy your full summer vacation!

    What a shame. I've never broken a bone, but I've gotten pretty close. I had a bicycle accident (as in me, getting hit by a car) in Sept.

    It seems like everyone around here is using crutches at least once a year. Silly sports.

    Get better soon!

    i have possibly broken tons of fingers playing basketball and soccer (im a goalie haha, we use hands). My pinkies have been especially hurt and malformed, one is longer than the other and the shorter one is way fatter. One of the knuckles on the "fat" one is below the actual "bend" in the bone as well. My hands are all screwed up haha.

    I just realized the "bend" in the bone term im looking for was JOINT! Alright, im smart. Sorry, im a little tired.

    Hope you heal asap!
