Stay Broken.... Again

July 28th, 2009
By

Blame it on MLC I say.

My body "age" is finally taking it's toll from all my "younger" years of kolohe play. All da years of abuse to my body and not healing "properly" is catching up. You could say dat I've pretty much broken, sprained or tore almost every part of da moving anatomy and majority of it was "self-healing" treatment.

I've played football with a cracked sternum, broken rib and of course broken fingahs -all of 'em have been broke at one time or annodah but not at da same time. I've played through sprained ankles, torn ligaments, scrapes and bruises - just tape it heavy and suck it up I'd say.

For me, it was just about playing da game and nothing would (could) stop me. I love sports! If there's any way I can play, I'll be there. Championships are nice but on da field or court no mattah wat da situation, I give it all I got. I'll take da physical beatings, da stronger, bettah outmatched opponent against me and if you knock me down, you can bet your life dat I'll bounce right back up.

Well except wen Da Wife says so.

(wwd!) *said silently*

Nah, she's been great! While I had to cut out a couple of leagues to keep da home front happy, she knows dat sports is part of my livelyhood and I just wouldn't be me without it. I love (respect) da fact dat she understands dat and doesn't force me to change.

Being injured sucks because I'm limited to watevah injury(ies) sideline my motion. On Sunday during my morning basketball game I took a hard charge very early in da game and normally I let my large cush take da katoosh but dis time I got spun sideways and landed backwards square on my hand. I thought it was broken. Naturally, I finished da game and had to still ride da bike home which was pretty painful.

Reluctantly, I went to da doctor on Monday (yes, a day later) but my orthopedic (yes, I have an orthopedic doctor on my address book) was out of town so I had to see annoddah. Da result? A hairline fracture in my left radius - simply put, cracked wrist.

Hairlines are tricky cause most times casts are not put on since it's not "broken" and all I was prescribed was a brace. I was so thrilled!!!

Why? Because I can still play dis weekend!

Well, if my body says so. :roll:

 

Have you broken anything? Wat was your worst injury? Or you too shame for say? Is there anything you love to do dat "NOTHING" would keep you from doing?

 

 

SHOUT OUT:  In case you missed da FGF announcement, if you're up to a Triad Pah-tay, we'll be at Fort Street Grill (Topa Towers across Aloha Tower - old AMFAC building) tomorrow Wednesday July 29th from about 6:30 - 10:00 pm or wenevah we shut da place down.

Come relax, have fun, meet new people and talk with people you have no idea who they are.   :razz: :lol:

    Ouch! I know da feeling brah. I've broken a lot of bones as well, mostly due to MVAs, but from sports as well. Like you, tape um up and keep playing! Feel better!


  2. 1dble:

    WOW! my first, 1st!


  3. KAN:

    Congrats 1dble!

    Aigoo, BL. Bodies don't heal so fast as we get older - trust me, I know. :-(

    I haven't broken any bones yet (watch me get bachi for saying dat) but I have a bad back, plantar fasciitis, sore knees, and borderline carpal tunnel syndrome (I type for a living). I used to have hip problems, but doing yoga regularly seems to have helped that a lot. Actually, doing yoga has helped a lot of my aches and pains, and not doing step aerobics any more probably helps too. I would be too wimply to play hurt. :-/


  4. roach:

    BL,

    I know, I know, I been MIA. But work has been so busy that I couldn't even sit down at my computer and get on the internet. WWD !
    No broken bones in my entire life of playing football, basketball, volleyball, golf and bowling although I don't "play" anymore. I even walked away from two MVAs without a scratch when the vehicles were atotal losses. Unless, you count cracking my forehead open (twice) when I about 1 year old (my mom told me about it). Maybe that's why I'm so crazy at times.
    Nothing would keep me from gambling in Vegas !


  5. M:

    Good morning BL!

    Lots of aches and pains, many cuts, bruises and sprains but no broken bones yet.


  6. buddahbelly:

    Worst I ever had was tearing the tendon that connects your big toe to the ankle. I was rounding first base and you could hear that buggah pop. Was painful for a couple of weeks but the worst part was the knee high cast I had for 6 weeks, sooo damn itchy!


  7. The Clown:

    See I told you wasn't broken. Now just suck it up so we can go golf on Sunday. I've been waiting to go golfing since the last time you went cancel cause you was sick so I no like wait again. J/k....its a good thing your left wrist is injured and not your right otherwise how we going win the league title for bowling. I cannot be carrying you and the whole team myself. You get one week for heal so if you must take a page out of Barry Bonds guide to recovery. HAHAHA........


  8. B:

    spoken like a true warrior, "can still play dis weekend". I neva break nuttin yet,knock on wood 3x, but startin fo get da body creaks from all da tennis use to play. right shoulder get pain wen start to serve, knees get pain now if stay on concrete too long running or watevas. gotta really warm up body good befoa exercise uddawise da back goin give problems. all dis, but I still like play too.


  9. Rosette:

    THAT is why I train my boys to sit watch t.v....you can't break your bones with that....OMG..my two brother have broken bones from running around and all sort of nonesense..but not me.. I SIT RELAX...gettign old here ! I AM ACHING AND I AM NOT GOING TOA DD BROKEN BONES TO THAT OMG!


  10. Rosette:

    my sistrer in law said my boys are boys so they will have broken bones I watch my boys like a hawk....my youngest wants to join all sort of sports I SAID NO NO WAY IN HELL you sit there...my youngest is very agile I TELL THEM SIT DOWN..yes no running around..here go watch t.v. don't expect me to sit in the hospital with your none sense !


  11. Rosette:

    I figure many ways to amuse my kids I will pick the easy no broken bones !!!


  12. che:

    Lance, let me give you some advice. The main thing in sports as you get older is not to get hurt. As I get closer to 50 let me give you some basketball rules.

    1. never drive to the basket if someone is in front of you. take the jump shot. Even Jordan did it when he was in his mid 30's.
    2. never take a charge. get out of the way and swipe at the ball if necessary.
    3. never jump unnecessarily and never in a crowd. when you land you might land on someone's foot and sprain your ankle.

    When I turned 40 some of my friends of similar age wanted to play a pickup game like our younger days. we got 10 friends together and played full court. 15 minutes into the game 4 people got hurt and we ended the game because we had only 6 healthy bodies left. The funny thing was 3 of the injured players worked for the same company. I told them the receptionist is going to laugh tomorrow morning.

    let me know if you need MLC rules for softball.


  13. rayboyjr:

    Lots of bumps and bruises ... but maybe I was just lucky cause I've surely banged my body around and not to have fractured legs, arms and head is a surprise ...

    One thing I did have was a fractured rib from ... get this ... a night of violent coughing ... just couldn't stop coughing ... shame, cause my doctor told me it usually happens to only "older" people ... I feel young but body stay old!

    When I was younger, I'd try to play through any injury ... but at this point in my life ... even a bruised ego will stop me from playing ... I just know in my wretched state of fitness that I probably will embarass myself now!


  14. theDman:

    Broke my foot once when I tripped while I was running...ouch! Hated that experience for sure. Was on crutches for 2 months??? It happened awhile back.

    Was just minding my own business running down the sidewalk when Tasha Kobashigawa came walking the other way in a short skirt.......yeow! whiplash! and...of course....not watching where I was going....

    *singing* And one mynah bird and one papaya treeee. :razz:

    Actually, doing yoga has helped a lot of my aches and pains, and not doing step aerobics any more probably helps too. I would be too wimply to play hurt. :-/

    Too wimply? :lol: Yoga is very good! Low impact and it stretches your body out with controlled movements.... but it's not a "contact" sport so I'll pass. :lol:

    Been there done dat but I tink I was like three or four... flying out da windshield onto da road.

  18. NEO:

    BL-

    In 7th grade I broke my left collarbone by landing wrong after a handstand. I was doing something stupid and heard the pop of the breaking bone... didn't want anyone to worry about me, so I just shrugged it off... I remember the sweat pouring down my face (first reaction is to sweat like a racehorse after breaking a bone) so dad says "what's the matter boy?" I say "nothing" and he let it go at that... 5 hours later, he sees me writhing in pain and FORCES me to go to emergency... and I find out that my collarbone not only broke, but has shifted, so that one piece of my bone is laying directly on the other... so to fix it, they had to spread my bones apart and fuse them using a soft splint for 4-6 weeks. Within 2 I was playing basketball again...

    As a freshman in college I broke my ankle. Prior to the injury I was running (soccer) 4 days a week for an hour a day, and lifting weights (circuit) for 2-3 hours a night, 5-6 days a week. I slipped off a curb, and hit the ground... Didn't hear the bone pop, but when I couldn't get up, I knew something was wrong. Long story short, I had a spiral fracture of my right tibia... Required surgery. I asked the doc what would happen if I didn't get the surgery, and he said "if you don't get this surgery, you may never walk normally again..." Okay, I guess I better get the surgery... Fondest memoriees were of me going to finals in a wheelchair, and eating it when I was coming down the walkway... best part was that rather than help me get back into my chair, people just walked by, and some even laughed... :( It's okay though, I'm a better man for it... or so I would like to believe.

    NEO


  19. J.P.:

    Never really broke anything before....but you know that bone that sticks out the achilles' heel part...well i can pop that bone in and out (no clue if i broke when i was a kid)

    How you know if its fractured? i hate doctors and i have a welt on my bruise from a muscle pull from my wrist....oh well


  20. 9th Island Girl:

    No broken bones yet, which is amazing because I must be the clumsiest person alive. Oh boy, BL, are you one of those that has to wake up and pop ibuprofen every day?! The way you abuse your body...

    :)


  21. che:

    BL, I will not waste time with the MLC rules or softball because you already broke rule #1. When playing infield never get infront of a ball, if it takes a bad hop you might get hit.

    I won't go into other rules.


  22. EMM386:

    I've broken almost every finger except my thumbs at some time or another. Both rotator cuffs are not so garans anymore. Real sore when the arm comes over the top, and take looooong time to warm up during softball. Multiple ankle/wrist sprains. Haven't broken/fractured any major bones yet, so I'm not bad. Some plantar problems with my left foot, and lately my right hip has been making weird clicking noises.


  23. 808 Dad:

    Hey Lance,
    Broke both my ankles. Left one from a pick up football game in High School. Right one from jumping the Kapalono swimming pool fence at 2am in the 12th grade. Hardest part was climbing back over the fence and driving my standard car home. Waited until the next day to tell the parents about my “basketball” injury. Broke the left wrist while playing tennis and running into the fence. I did win the point though.
    Way too many skate board injuries to mention.

    808Dad


  24. 2B:

    I had a hairline fracture in/near my thumb back in the day, and my aunt who was the orthopedist's nurse put me in a cast to my elbow. Why you ask, cuz she knew I was going to go and play baseball in a tournament and didn't want me to injure it further. It was scheduled to come off in 6 weeks, but fast forward two weeks to after the tournament and miraculously, they were able to take the cast off. I guess I'm thankful that I can still touch all my fingers to my thumb.

    No forget yoga get nice chicks right? No tell da wife eh....


  25. Rod's Big Bro:

    Eh BL, sorry to hea about da fracta, but comes with da territory. I broke my eye and fingas and dat was jus surfing.
    Lets see fingers from baseball and knee surgery from to much gym, tennis, and baseball, eventually we gotta pay da price for the fun of da game.

    I went comment on your FB and it was about your interview with Augie-T but got posted on your fracta wrist. I not laughing at your broke wrist, it was about your interview, dat was so cool, all of you out there go see it, just crack you up.

    Hope to be dere at da pahtee, small kine late, but I going be like HNL2LAS and try make da kine sneeky-peeky and den jus slide in, muwahaha, k lata's


  26. Scott:

    I've never broken any bones. I'm a golfer. We're a very delicate bunch :)


  27. hemajang:

    so BL is for Broken Lance now? or should we say, again? Hey, you are what you are and probably going get more broken stuff in the future but like some said...going take it's toll and body not getting any younger and recovery going be painfully slower, in other words, adjust your game but still have fun. I've had about 8-9 surgeries but only a couple due to athletics. The oddest was repairing a torn tendon on my hand. It happened while, don't laugh too hard now - doing dishes and flicking my hand to shake off some carrot peelings. My kids have great fun reminding me of the "flick." Anyway, my orthopedic doctor told me that it is not that uncommon and had a recent case where a person was cleaning toilet and was flicking off a hair and snapped a tendon. Thought maybe I'd get some sympathy and a free pass from da wife but no such luck...still gotta do da dishes.

    Yowza! My friend broke his jumping from a swing wen we was in elemenatary. Once in football practice I broke our quaterback's collarbone on a delayed blitz... all I saw was a big bullseye. All I heard after was a moan. :oops: Back in da day there were no "red jerseys" and stay away from da quarterback rule... if there was our coaches didn't tell us. :shock:

    I had a spiral fracture of my right tibia... Required surgery.

    Das one of da worst things I want to hear, "you need surgery." I've had my left knee blown out and once he said those words da only thing I asked was how long da recovery time was. :roll:

    ... best part was that rather than help me get back into my chair, people just walked by, and some even laughed... It's okay though, I'm a better man for it... or so I would like to believe.

  29. Hawaii.kiwi:

    Hi Lance. Sorry to hear about your injury. As an avid runner I can relate. I have experienced just about every running injury over the years including stress fractures.
    Like Kan, I practice yoga and it has helped a lot.


  30. snow:

    lots of injuries but, thankfully, not many broken bones. no broken bones from sports... only from baking! (i no like hemajang feel bad about his dishwashing incident... :mrgreen: ) i dropped a cookie sheet on my toe... like a guillotine blade! i guess 'cause i'm not a good golfer like scott, i get plenty golf injuries ('cause i have to swing that club twice as many times has he does! ha ha!)!


  31. King Katonk:

    Braddah Lance,

    We are both cut from the same cloth…you sure we’re not related? In my lifetime I have broken a total of 10 bones (not including fingers) all while playing sports. I guess after the last fracture I figured out that I’m no Chad Owens. Call me a hardhead; thus the nickname.

    FYI – take care of yourself, especially when “Little BL” comes along. I spend just a few minutes tossing the ball with my kids and eventually end up with hours of pain.

    It’s no fun getting old.


  32. Rodney:

    Oh, is that what I saw on your wrist.

    For a minute there, I thought you were wearing Handerpants.


  33. Bre:

    Sorry to hear about your injury. Tough break!! :)

    I have not broken anything yet (knock on wood) but I have received a couple of sprains. The first was years ago during a dance recital (yes, dancing is a physical sport and you can get injured!) and I was doing a circle kick and landing in the splits. Unfortunately, I also landed on my hand wrong and sprained my wrist. It still gives me problems to this day. The second was at a family reunion about 10 years ago and we were swinging from a rope over my uncle's pool. I let go and when I landed in the pool my foot hit the bottom pretty hard. I didn't realize it was hurt so later we were tap dancing. It was at dinner that my ankle started hurting and when I looked at it it was twice the size it should have been! Still having problems with the ankle too.

    I think the older you get the longer the injury stays around!!


  34. Braddah Lance:

    Hawaii.kiwi:
    As an avid runner I can relate. I have experienced just about every running injury over the years including stress fractures.

    I've always been curious about runners - do you get special insoles or just "special" shoes? I can't even fathom da damage done to knees and ankles from running on da pavement constantly so da footwear must/have to be top notch no?

    Like Kan, I practice yoga and it has helped a lot.

    Have you done Vrikshasana or Savasana? Dunno wat it is but sounds hard. :grin:

    Bre:
    Sorry to hear about your injury. Tough break!!

    :lol: Pun intended? :lol:

    The first was years ago during a dance recital (yes, dancing is a physical sport and you can get injured!) and I was doing a circle kick and landing in the splits.

    My brain just got injured imagining dat manuver. :lol: Oh yeah.... so did my groin. :lol:

    I think the older you get the longer the injury stays around!!

    Das no doubt..... but das wat sucks about it! :mad:


  35. Rodney:

    King Katonk makes a good point. Don't wait too long to start your family. Bumbye you going to too old/sore to play with your kids.


  36. ZX6R:

    How's about a torn achilles tendon, anyone? Needs surgery to repair (you can't point your toes, so can't walk or run or jump) and you're never the same afterwords, unlike broken bones which actually heal stronger than before. I did it playing b-ball. Pushed off to run around my man and and actually heard the SPROING of it snapping. Didn't even feel any pain. When I asked the ER doc why there wasn't any pain, he said you completely tore the tendon and all the nerves. Now no more volleyball, no more basketball for me. Also cracked a rib coughing.


  37. Ynaku:

    Kids? Us going be Uncles pretty soon BL??????? (spoken really softly)

    Did I break anything?

    No bones broken. (unless you consider chipped tooth broken bone)

    Broke a$$
    Broken heart
    Broke brain
    Sore muscles
    Tennis elbow (right now :x Dang I had hard time carry one stoopid box today)
    Sore back
    After riding horse last week, Broken B*11s :lol: Is that considered a bo... Never mind wrong blog.... :P

    Brah you not getting younger. When you get older going be more sore and longer to heal. I bet even Bowling hurts :)


  38. EMM386:

    @BL: Everybody I know who's played baseball/softball for a long time has the problems with their rotator and/or hips.


  39. Makiki:

    Never broke anything yet but quite often I stay broke! Going to try to make the Pah-tay and hope to meet some of the WWD Hui.

  40. lesliek:

    TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF LANCE.. hope you heal quick. you can get sympathy from me while you wear your brace.


  41. Warrior Dave:

    BL,

    2 days before prom, the boys and I decide to play "touch" football on the grass field. My friends tell me no get hurt because prom coming up. Being young and foolish I proclaim, "even if I break my leg I still going."
    I run and step into a sprinkler head and turn my ankle...I can hear the crunch and feel the pain shoot to my head...My friends make me walk home cuz they say only sprain...

    Go doctor the next day and he like cast the ankle. I tell him no can cuz prom tomorrow. He wraps it in an elastic bandage and give me crutches. Being the macho dude I am, I went to prom but almost pass out in the bathroom from the pain. I finally go to the doctor the next day for my cast.

    Mahalo to my date for being so understanding and treating me like a King.


  42. Rosette:

    hey you can still use your thumb and play wrestle with that!

    One tiem my husbnad broke hsi ankel his dad put supper hto water on his ankle..OMG You are suppose to use cold ice pack..OMG I LAUGH!

    @ BL So they don't exercise? My boys they run around by themselves ...and I kick them to get outside but no fooling around ( I TAKE NO GARBAGE FROM KIDS) we have sidwe walk.so they cna wlak with that and my youngest otu with his bike and his skateboard etc etc.....How much exercise do you really need my oldest is very thin slim but the youngest so is constantly moving is BIG BONE like his father ...he moves yet is is bigger! PUT it this way if you exercise you get hurt if you sit you get hurt so pick the sitting either way you get hurt at least with sitting you still have a chance to move and still have your bones..... when daddy is hoem the boys are out and about with him playing with his friend football I cross my finger and warn my husband better send my boys in one piece or HELL BREAK Loose!


  43. Rosette:

    lucky for me I had my boys when I was age 22 so I was younger still able to run with the little rug rats...! I figure my boys they have sprts at school and daddy occupy them tossing the darn ball..( WHEN THEY SLEEP I POP THE DARN THING ) the only sport I let them do is swimming ( no one push you ) then blowing tennis and golf everythign else I watch them and I don't encourange ..my youngest he cry mom I want to play football and hockey...He can skate ...I made a deal with him when he can drive at age 16 then he can do whatever and I told him I am not wasting my time sitting in hospital so he better train himself run in the side walk for five years ! So he run he comes back tired ! See that will teach him lesson sit down! I can throw the football so he likes to play with me..he can throw far better than his father..omg funny.


  44. sally:

    Ho man, just when I get home everybody is awol. Where you all stay?

    Don't want bachi so I'll just say my only war wound is bus' up hands from bowling. The skin around the fingernails got so dry and they don't really recover. So yah, dainty I'm not.

    Used to get torn calluses but patched 'em up with New Skin. Raw, sore hands from bowling multiple shifts on back to back days got relief from poking your thumb in a puka in a potato. Fo' real, it worked!

    Haven't bowled in over 20 yrs now...


  45. sally:

    @BL: Take care of yourself. Like I always tell my boss... one day you going blink yo' eye and you going be 50! Body all bus' up and takes longer to recover. Da boss is a die hard basketball man, can tell when he played the night before when he comes groaning into the office in the morning. LOL

    @Kan: Please be real careful about that CTS. I had it, resisted surgery for as long as I could with therapy, hand exercises, and 3 rounds of cortisone shots over 2yrs. Finally got to where surgery was the only way. That was about 8yrs ago and I was one of the lucky few that got relief from surgery. But I'm still very careful and always aware of what I do. CTS is so so so painful!!!


  46. BananaFysh:

    I went a loooong time before I broke a bone. I played basketball and soccer throughout my youth without an injury.

    I sprained my ankle pretty badly in college, playing pantball, of all things! After that, it was allll downhill. I had to wear a brace on that ankle all the time for hoops or whatever, and I wound up using that plastic Active Ankle brace.

    So I was playing hoops with the boys, and I went up for a rebound (Yeah, I broke one of Che's rules ;) ) -- and landed on my friend's foot. My ankle rolled over, and I wound up fracturing my fibula. It was the ankle with the brace, so I don't know how bad it would have been without it. I just remember landing funny, it rolling,and hearing the pop.

    It was the day after Christmas too -- and a few days after Garrison Hearst rolled his ankle and pretty much ended his career. (You remember that, right BL? ;) )

    I had a cast for 6 weeks, and that was brutal. So stink, gross. When I got my cast off, the doctor told me, "Oh it healed well. It might have healed that well even without the cast." :evil:

    I started thinking about what kind of cast he would get for his head after I slammed it into the table. Jerk! :twisted:


  47. Glenn Miyashiro:

    Hey BL,

    Amazing da wife no have problems wit u playing all these sports…I mean from softball league, basketball games, coaching baseball and not to mention house hold chores…wen do you have time for her? My life wen change once got hitched, and once da kids came into the picture our life (wife and mine) wen change. But all da change was definitely for da better.

    Thinking back, I stay glad I changed my life to focus on my wife. Spending quality weekday nights and weekends together was truly a gift. Not many couples can say that because of da busy schedules. If I still played my sports with the boys, I would have missed out on that. And now wit da kids, even more so. Sure, we can drop off da kids at the sitters to spend time together, but like our parents told us growing up…”you bring kids in the world, it’s your responsibility to raise them, major sacrifices must be made, no can handle no have kids.” Wit how fast da kids grow up, why wouldn’t u want to spend as much time wit them?

    Hey, wat eva works for you bradah. As long as u both stay wit da current living situation, that’s da main thing. Because everyone is different and we all have different needs, maybe u and da wife are simple wea, if u guys spend little time together and that’s okay wit u guys. But for me and da wife, we love spending time together and that’s why we tried to spend as much time together as possible, because we knew once the kids came, it would change things for us.
    .


  48. Rosette:

    yes my husband he plays hockey with his old folk co workers and yes my husband spends time with me all the time his spare time he makes sure he is with me..I let him out with his friends but he is mostly with me and our boys together.

    Oh I get one guuuuuuuuuuud one! My worst and painful injury! Giving BIRTH!!!!!!!!!!! Not once but 3 times!!!! all natural!!!!!

    Glenn Miyashiro:
    Amazing da wife no have problems wit u playing all these sports…wen do you have time for her?

    You make time. Yes, with all da things I'm involved with it consumes a lot of time but our situation (time wise) is pretty unique. I've worked out a few things and it's been working with us so far - just can't join any oddah league oddah than da ones I'm playing in.

    Thinking back, I stay glad I changed my life to focus on my wife.... Hey, wat eva works for you bradah. As long as u both stay wit da current living situation, that’s da main thing. Because everyone is different and we all have different needs, maybe u and da wife are simple wea, if u guys spend little time together and that’s okay wit u guys. But for me and da wife, we love spending time together and that’s why we tried to spend as much time together as possible, because we knew once the kids came, it would change things for us.

    Yeah, everybody different. Sounds like you and your wife are inseparable. Fo' us, we love dat inseparable feeling too but don't have to be with each oddah 24/7. We each respect each oddahs space and of course there are times wen you need space and da oddah half wants "us" time.

    Long story short, if can manage time, you can manage anything.

    OUCH! You Da (Wo)MAN! :wink:


  51. Glenn Miyashiro:

    Hey BL,

    I just got to hand it to you and da wife, don’t know how you guys can do it. Our thinking is the time we spend away from each other (alone time) is when we are both at work. So wat eva free time we have is precious. With all your leagues, coaching, plus playing your video games, you must have a secret potion to stop time or slow it down, cause with all you do, 24 hours in a day, is just not enough or do you even sleep.
