    Well, I was mowing along riding my sulky on my walk behind when, WHAM, the deck hits a big stone buried in the lawn the mowing stops bruptly and I go flying forward while the mowing jams into my pelvic bone. It hurt like heck and I could barely move. It took me at least 10 minutes to even stand up from my position on the ground ( I probably looked stupid). I almost packed up all of stuff and went straight to the emergency room because I thought that I broke something. I still think that perhaps I fractured it or something because when I walk I am in a lot of pain.

    I guess that we will see how I feel tomorrow

    Good luck, Hope you are OK! If you have any doubt, get it checked. Some things only get worse if left unchecked.

    Hey man, sorry to hear that. Hope you can make your way to get it looked at, couldn't hurt (pun intended). Really though, PM Lawn is right. If there is something wrong, it'd be better to find out now.
