    Before I played bass,I sprained my wrist 3 times,im glad it was before i played bass.
  5. I broke my pinky once. I didn't play bass then, but it was BAD. I was playing football and someone threw me a pass, and I don't even like football that much, and I tried to catch it and my finger just sort of snapped. I had a splint for 2 months, but like I said, I didn't play bass, so it wasn't horrible.
  6. Oh yah? At least you didn't bleed out till you became pale :) I just put a 1/4" deep cut on the end of my left index finger today. It's split side to side. Only enough meat for 2 stitches. Table saw accident. Just an unlucky break, being as careful as I could. The blade grabbed the material, and my hand with it. Didn't get the bone or nail, so I'm actually very lucky. It just hurts very much so. And now it's bleeding again from (trying) to type.

    My finger looks like hamburger. Beat that. You could prolly put 5-6 tic tacs in there, and close it back up. I have a pac-man fingertip!

    But it'll be good to go in 10 days or so. I'll just start playing as soon as I can to get the sensitivity down.
  7. I'll try and get a picture of it, and put a link up. It'll at least help by letting you're not the only one having a very bad day.
  8. fine maybe your injury is worse than mine that sucks hope it gets better

    Tufnuts...thats hella gross. Make sure you get some pics up, pronto. :D

    I broke my pinky once playing 4 square. That game kicked my fingers ass. I had a cast up to my elbow for a few months. This was all before I played bass...thank God.

    That sucks for both of you!

    Get Well Soon!

  13. least I can still play. But not very well.

    That sucks about the hand. I've broken fingers/feet/knees/head before. It'll heal. And you're still young. You'll be good as new in 3 weeks.

    Good luck.

    PS. I really dislike pain.

    I've never been to the hospital except when i was born. I've never had a broken bone, stitches... I'm a lucky, non-clumsy bastard. :p

    When i played baseball, in my last season, i kept on getting nailed by pitches for some reason.

    "Stitches?!? Do you know how much that will cost?
     Just get the bleeding stopped. You're making a mess.
     So your wrist muscle's torn. Whaddya' need that for?
     Ya' hardly play anymore. No, I will NOT drive you to the
     drug store for band-aids...that truck is a stick-shift."

    Thanx MacGyver ;)

    As it was, I got some of them big ol' Telfa pads and
    some medical tape. Got the nicest glares from slack-
    jawed yokels who thought I'd tried to commit suey-cide :rolleyes:.
    And after writin' code for 3 or 4 hours, it started leakin' and
    got all polka-dotty :p.

    Just make sure you don't cut the duct tape with a Swiss Army knife! Due to the Law of MacGyver(tm), anytime you cut duct tape with a Swiss Army knife it instantly turns anything you put the duct tape on into a bomb. You don't want to go blowing yourself up now, do you? :D
