So I turned my ankle on a jumprope yesterday, and fell on the cement & fractured my elbow. The pain is worse than I've ever experienced, & that includes passing a kidney stone & a natural chilbirth. I have surgery Monday.

I'm really sorry to hear you're in so much pain! My heart skipped a beat reading your post--ouch! Take good care of yourself, and let us know how surgery went when you're back in business. Poor girl.

OI! That sucks! Misery loves company, right? I dislocated my right hip on Wednesday.. It's back in today with lots of icing and a certain kind of massage therapist working me last night.

I hope your surgery goes well. Take it easy and rest lots.

Ouch!

I hope your surgery goes well. Are you getting a rod put in place? I have one in my leg from several years back. I would do that over getting a cast any day. Take it easy in the meantime.

Good luck!

Not a rod but pins since the break is at the joint. I am glad to be missing the cast, although the splint & sling are no fun.
