    Thankfully none in 35yrs.
    I have broken the skin in a fall (but that's par for the course) :)

    In a single accident:

    Compound fractures of Femur, Fibula, Tibia, Radius, Ulna, Humerus. Broken collarbone, severed subclavian artery and brachial plexus. Oh, and contracted gas gangrene. Spoilt my whole summer.

    Mind you, the two months on Pethedine were a wow...

    I've had a broken jaw (and some smashed teeth) and lost my pinky finger on my left hand.

    cheers

    Plenty of grazes, bruising and some lumps but nothing broken yet!! Yes the pain of getting gravel out of grazes is somewhat unbearable and they always scar too :-(

    I've had the car door job done to me, the turn left in front of the cyclist and the nearly reversed into as well! joys of being a cyclist then hey! I wish they would LOOK where they are going and LOOk before they open the car door! esp on narrow roads!

    Broken toes, sprained ankle from hell and fractured thighbone doing horse riding though!

    Broken wrist, but technically I wasn't riding, more like uncontrolled flying, until I met the road
    does that still count :D

    No broken bones but I did rupture two lumbar disc and dislocate my spine. My hips were two inches to the right of where they should have been.
    4.5 weeks in hospital in traction plus surgery to decompress the discs.

    Gotta aggree with Timdanaher though - the time on Pethadine was ALMOST worth it!
