Ulnar collateral ligament sprain (skiers thumb)....over a month ago.

Probably the 30th time doing it in.

On the waiting list to see the thumb doc, it might take a year to get in.

Sunday was my first day in 6 weeks outside in rock shoes. Didn't feel great but it was better than the couch.

Achilles tendon rupture in left leg (fell topping out on an easy boulder problem in the climbing gym). Had surgery at the end of January. Walking and cycling now, but no running, jumping or climbing until at least the end of July.

Another rotator cuff and torn suprisupinatus tendon here. Be out a one wants to say. However, getting lots of hiking in. In fact, wife and I (and the dog) recently did a trail that I had last done almost 40 years ago to the day with my brother. Brought back some great memories and it's good to do a change up pitch and do something (hiking) I'd put on the backburner so that I could go climb.

bad back... L5/S1
aggravated bicycling (apparently)
pretty much shut everything down in mid-May

just now comfortable enough that I forget to take the "Vitamin I" on schedule (800mg x 3/day for the last month, some days with 4, and icing the back too)...

starting to walk at lunch...
...have been to the gym
and outside, of course, but that doesn't count

Spinal Fusion (T10-11) due to a massive e-coli infection that destroyed the disc. Surgery was 12/15/2011. Treatment for the infection took another 2 months of IV antibiotics. Returned to work in March (3 months ealrlier than originally expected). Only one restriction left - no climbing. I expect that to be lifted on 7/9 (8:30am) when I get confirmation that the bone graft has fully knitted. Should be in the gym doing easy boulder problems by 9:30.

This might be my first ever side-lining climbing injury, so I'm about due. Wrenched my back on a gym boulder problem a few weeks ago. (I sort of recognized that this was a tweaky move, but as a plastic boulderer I can't resist V5s that are labeled "V8". Sent it! Ugh.)

After a few days it seemed to be improving rapidly, so I resumed climbing, cycling, etc. But then I gradually noticed weirdnesses in my left leg, including an aching hip and "foot drop" (weak foot flexing muscles that make my foot slap when I walk). Probably something like sciatica, agrees my general practitioner, so I have an appointment in two weeks :( with a spine specialist.

On the bright side, school's out as of this week, so I have all the time in the world to... sit and stew and imagine new symptoms.

Looks like I am in good company. Heal up, y'all.

[And good guess, Daphne, aka bionic woman---I did want a place to gripe amid all the damned TRs and partner calls :), and I figured others might, too.]

It sounds like murcy is being philosophical about his situation.

Just answering the question – no complaints, just lived a hooligan’s life ……WITH A BIG GOOFY SMILE

Bilateral epicondylitis
Tore the triquetral ligament off the ulna aspect
Bilateral knee chondromalacia
Vertebrae compression L1 – L5
Spinal stenosis
Rotator Cuff impingement
Mod/Severe ACL tear
The most recent – a month ago – mod/severe Posterior cruciate ligament tear. Started PT with a very positive and highly effective therapist. He has assured me that there will be climbing in my future

short list du jour :
1) right shoulder needs to be re-encapsulated (and pleated - I'm told there will be pleats in the labrum it's so stretched and torn) - I'll be down for a few (6?) months starting july 2
i'm hoping this gives the 2) slightly broken right toe and 3) slightly torn right tricep tendon a little time to heal
i'm not expecting the 4) partially torn left meniscus to do anything, but its not that bad ;-)

i was talking to someone at work about the series of shoulder injuries I had and the first thing he asked me was what about my diet made me so prone to shoulder shredding...interesting food for thought, I was vegan for a few years before the whole thing started, but I'm not really sure that had all that much to do with it considering the circumstances...

I'm sending get well wishes to all my fellow climbers on this thread.

Yikes, sorry to hear about all these injuries. Special healing wishes for the spinal stuff, I have certainly found it un-fun.

Daphne, welcome to Team Titanium !

Fell of a ladder twice two years ago and messed up my hip , pelvic Girdle. Have to lean against a wall to put my Levi's on in the morning. Also a weak and constant left ankle injury... Climbing is a dream state that my body can't cash the checks for. I guess that's the price to pay for 35 years of climbing and construction work.But I still have my dreams...
