    No, that is not me. Nor is it someone I particularily like, but jeez. This photo has NOT been edited(except for me editing out his face).
    So, here's what happened:
    I used to go to school with this guy(let's just call him Bob). Bob had broken his left arm four times, and the bone was getting weak. So, they operated on him and put a titamnium plate in his arm. The plate lasted a few months.
    Bob was sitting on a couch, and used his arm to help him get up. That was when it snapped. The titanium plate in his arm, that was meant to be there forever and stop his arm from breaking, snapped, causing the bone to break and look really gross. Now Bob has 2 plates and 11 pins in his arm and limited movement. Forever.
    Moral to the story: Don't break your arm. Or, avoid couches.
    Dunno why I'm posting this. I guess I just felt like letting the world know.

    That is disturbing. It reminds me of when my son was playing on the monkey bars at his grandmothers. His hands slipped off and he fell flat and landed on his back but his elbow hit first. It crushed his elbow. I met them at the ER. The top of his arm was normal looking but the bottom would just flop around. I cringe every time I think about it. They had to operate immediately due to the blood flow being limited.

    After surgery he had several months of physical therapy to get the use of his elbow back. The Dr said he would lose some motion of the elbow but he didn't.
