Default Re: Worst injury/injuries you\'ve sustained?

I severely dislocated my right shoulder lifting weights. I was at the top of an overhead dumbbell press with 80lbs, and before I knew it, my right arm rotated 180 degrees backwards. I shredded everything and had to get a massive surgery. It ended my baseball "career" (hopes), but I got lucky. It didn't keep me out of aviation, and I healed decently enough. I just recently started doing shoulder presses again and managed to get back to well above the level I was at, working with 90-100 nowadays.

Also, I ran a motorcycle off the road at exactly 90mph. I picked up the bike and drove it home, later discovering that I had a very minor fracture of the wrist and a minor sublocation of the right ankle. So....pretty lucky I'd say.
