lets hear it ... how long, what was the injury and any advice to help prevent that
 
2 years torn ACL knee, no advice things happen.
 
stomach surgery--out two years
shoulder surgery---8 weeks
 
A freak accident during sparring. I busted my meniscus. Took over a year for it to heal completely. But I went back to some sparring two months after the accident anyway. Not at the club but at a place where I could train with my friend. And I've had an injury to my elbow which lasted several months.

But the worst injury of all? I have a strained thumb from vale tudo sparring. It NEVER heals. Hurts like a mfer whenever it is pushed against something (body, head whatever). It's been like that forever.
 
I guess most of you know that I just tore some cartilage in my rib. This is without a doubt the worst injury that has ever happenend to me.
 
I heard a weird pop in my elbow about a week ago. I took 7 days off. It sucked man.

that sucks......i remember when it hurt to wake up to go the bathroom, sneezing sucks, and laughing, laughing hurt like a mutha!
 
3 months due to shoulder operation - torn laybrum and tendons torn off shoulder by the bicep head .....The cause was my buddie blasted the focus mitts and popped my arm back , I waited for two years before I had it fixed . It slowly got worse ...

Hey dude, at least I know I'll get through it! Thanks for posting your injury, I feel like, less hard-done-by now. 6 weeks ain't squat, right? It sucks, but it'll be okay. I just wish getting outta bed didn't hurt so much!
 
6 fucking weeks cause of fucking basketball. Hopefully they take this bitch ass cast off my hand on monday but i feel pain sometimes so i dont know. I was having so much fun in BJJ too. The only positive thing that came from this injury is that my backhand in handball is fucking wicked, and being on my computer logged to sherdog typing with one hand.. yay[/bitching]
 
It might not sound bad but I f'd up my finger in football practice. Set me out off bjj for a couple weeks
 
Week and a half with a sprained muscule near my shoulder blade. I couldn't move my head more than a few inches if my life depended on it. With a little chiropractic help and some massage, I was good enough to get back on the mats. How not to have that happen? Be 100% warmed up and be careful rolling to guard from the turtle with new guys if you're not warm yet.
 
5 weeks due to tendonitis in both of my elbows. I just got back to BJJ. One of my elbows healed 100% but the other stills has a little tendonitis in it.

Torn ACL and MCL right knee, give or tak a year
 
4 months......nerve injury to my elbows from resisting arm bars....I satrted getting numbness and tingling in my (R) pinky and weakness in my hand.Then my left followed suit and I had nerve conduction tests and pinpointed that the problem was at the bend of my elbows.

Lesson: don't be a dick, tap to arm bars when they're on
 
tendonitis in both knees currently 4 months because of how slow doctors are. i couldnt get in with my reg doctor until the first month then in the 3rd month i finally had the appointment to see the specialist. and now ill be able to go back a week from wednesday
 
5 months ACL reconstruction / lateral meniscothropy

Tore my knee after huge guy summersaulted in my triangle
 
Broke a rib. I laid on the couch on my opposite for 8 months. Rib injuries fucking blow hurts to do anyhting that involves breathing. Advice, keep elbows in tighter when sparring.
