I dislocated my elbow once playing football (or was it my ass?), crikey it was painful. Luckily the St John’s ambulance crew were so inept that I was just laughing at them, that helped with the pain.
Elbow injuries can be painful, yes! I fell awkwardly on frozen hard ground - the elbow went back at right-angles in the opposite direction it was supposed to go. Unfortunately we were playing on a council pitch, so the changing rooms were locked - the council man would come back and unlock them at full time - so I had a miserable cold hour shivering on the concrete steps outside the changing rooms.
Eventually got sort of half changed (couldn't manage to get the shirt off over my head) but fortunately one of my team mates agreed to drive me too A&E. Not before we'd stopped off in a crowded pub for a pint though ............................ (his idea, not mine!)
