What a morbid topic for such a beautiful autumn day! Worthy of a Hungarian!
I have broken all of my fingers at least once, with the exception of my LH little finger....mostly as a kid, via car doors or stacking wood. (3x RH thumb, 2X RH index finger and LH thumb.)
But the worst was when I broke my RH scaphoid at work. The pieces weren't growing together properly, and I was in a cast for a full year...January to the following January. I was hooked up to one of those clunky Electro-magnetic bone growth stimulators. From what I understand, it was relatively new technology at the time. I couldn't even hold my guitar, much less play it. This accident was the catalyst for my decision to devote myself to classical guitar. Seriously, the guitar was what I had missed the most!
