Every time I hear the word "hernia" I get chills down my spine.

This could be considered a bit off-topic I suppose, but the only reason I mention it is because I hear it so much when it comes to NFL injuries.

With so many players getting injured all the time, and the recent topic on injury fines, I'm curious to know if anyone else feels that way. Now Pacman Jones has one. I've never had one, knock on wood, but that sounds freaking painful.

The breaking of things doesn't bother me so much, even concussions don't phase me. But hernias......makes me shiver every time.

I would say the order of cringe for me goes kind of like this:

1.Hernias.
2.Broken collar bones.
3.Torn ACL.

I was mainly talking about sport-related, specifically NFL-related injuries but OUCH! That sucks man. Sorry to hear that. I heard that's no joke either.

I should probably start familiarizing myself more with these things seeing how I'm knocking on the door of the big 3.0.

Had hernia surgery a few years ago Actually had two hernias, one on each side. If i were a pro athlete I would take that over a leg or shoulder injury any day. It was painful fo a couple weeks, but no lingering issues.

I've had a hernia and a broken collar bone, trust me hope neither happens to you. You have to have surgery to fix a hernia and your left with a scar for the rest of your life, u can't fix a collar bone, you have to let it heal on it's own and you can barely move the shoulder that is on the side of the collar bone. I haven't had a kidney stone yet (knock on wood), but i think that would be the most painful thing to endure.

Edit: I've also had a concussion, it's painful also but not as bad as the other two. It's like a lingering migraine.

I think for me it's the word more than anything else. Having never had one....just the way it sounds when you pronounce it....it literally SOUNDS painful.

Heeeerrrrrniiiia.

True. Sorry. Just the most painful thing i've ever had to go through. I've broken my nose twice and my wrist once. Had a concussion playing football and got knocked out with a baseball. lol. By far, the kidney stone is the worst. I'm 28 and have been dealing with them for about 3 years off and on now. I wouldn't wish these bastards on my worst enemy......well unless my worst enemy was a Dallas Cowboy. :P

They fixed my hernias through a small incension on my naval. Recovery was more painful because they blow you up like a balloon and some the gas gets trapped and hurts, but no visible scar.

lol. Agreed. I've always been nervous when the doc wants to check for a "Hernia".

Almost as bad as "Chlamydia". Sure, you can get rid of it in 7 days with a lil blue capsule taken twice daily (Doxycycline 100mg).....but damn that sounds nasty.

Baseball bat huh? LOL.

And I hear ya on the Cowboys:D, speaking of which, I couldn't help cringing when I saw Romo's play that got him his collar bone broken.

According to the defender, he let out a squeal. Lol and ouch. In all honesty I'm glad it didn't end up too serious.

That is ONE benefit of being a young team though. A young athletes body is more resilient to hits. Thankfully so far this year we have been pretty fortunate on that side.

Torn shoulder muscles look the fuging worst.. I was fortunate enough to never have any serious injuries throughout my years playing sports, but my dad wasn't as fortunate. He had reconstructive surgeries in both knees from football but said when he had shoulder surgery to fix a tear it was the worst. Now, i'm sure age has to do with it because he was 50 at the time of the shoulder surgery, which was around a year ago but they don't look fun. And it especially blew for him because he re-injured it 4 months later and had to re-do the thing over again! ouch

Yes, your guts busting through your abdominal wall into your testicles is an unpleasant thought.
