Bam Margera broke his wrist and dislocated his elbow in a skateboarding accident, but his recovery does not include taking painkillers.
The ‘Jackass’ star tells TMZ… he sustained the injury when he fell during a skateboarding trick he hadn’t done in over a year, but unfortunately it ended with his arm arching back and bones nearly breaking his skin.

Just before the horrific accident, Bam said he was at an AA meeting across the street from the skate park. He hopped on his board to try out some tricks during a 30 minute break… and the rest, as they say, is disastrous history.
While Bam says this is the 10th time he’s broken the same wrist, this recovery will be different from the others — he says he won’t be taking any pain medication because he’s also on addiction recovery, which is going well.
As we first told you… Bam recently completed a year from drug and alcohol treatment in Florida, and he wants to stay on the wagon and still continues taking classes.
He doesn’t want to derail that progress, so Bam naturally plans to grin and bear the pain.
