    17 Years of life, 0 broken bones...until now...Last game I took a shot in the thumb, thought nothing of it, even came back and scored a goal, the game winner to boot.

    Today it was extremely bruised and swollen...went to the emergency and my thumb is broken...out 4-6 weeks. It was a good run, but finally I have broken a bone and am taking my first extended break from hockey. To make it worse I have to miss and out of town tournament this weekend too...oh well...

    Just a little venting thread for my frustrations...

    I know the feeling all too well. I had to quit rep hockey going into Midget due to post-concussion syndrome. I could have gone back to play house league later in the season, but didn't want to at the time. Regret it now, 11 years later, but oh well.

    I took a shot in the ribs just before Christmas. No broken bones, but some deep bruising and some apparent ligament damage, according to the doc. Couldn't do a sit-up to save my life.

    I don't need a puck in the ribs to tell me I can't do a sit-up, much easier ways to tell than that bud ;) heh,

    Yea, I ended up losing a scholarship due to injuries, it sucks...

    Interesting timing. A big hulking dude fell on my leg last night and I heard a crack as my leg buckled. I can walk ok, so it's not broken but I'm trying to limit the weight I'm putting on it as I know something is wrong. Gonna go to the doctor probably tomorrow to get some x-rays. Hope it's not cracked :(

    If money is not a problem you should still go to the tournaments with your team. That is what I miss most about playing when I was younger are the road trips.
    Also if you just broke your thumb you can still participate in skating drills. I would try and keep that part sharp, so when you come back you are still in good shape.
     
  7. When I broke my thumb I bought 15'' gloves (to fit over the splint) and played two weeks after the corrective surgery. I was out for 3 weeks.

    As long as you can skate try to play.

    Wondering, does anyone know if there is such thing as a playing cast for a broken thumb?
