    Ever Cracked a Rib?

    Seems I cracked two ribs, Saturday. That's what the doctor told me, today.

    Don't cough, laugh, move quickly and definitely do not sneeze. Double up on antihistamines. Take no chance.

    Doc: How'd you do this?
    Me: Gardening.
    Doc: What - Say that again?

    When I had cracked ribs I slept in the recliner, sob trying to even get upright. Been a couple of months and I still feel tender. Old bones take longer to heal. Wish you the best. Tripped on the wood pile with arms full and no where or time to do anything else but fall.

    Never had a cracked or broken rib but I heard they were painful.

    Good advise on not laughing or coughing or sneezing...but what about having a daily...ummm...for lack of a more polite term....having a "Sit Down" and taking your daily "constitutional"? Bet thats painful...Fiber might help.

    Funny you say that. Let's just say that we take things for granted.

    I'm still sleeping in the bed but there's a lot of foul language when I get up.

    Been a couple months and you still feel tender? Crap!

    I cracked 2 under my right armpit. Not really pain now but can still feel where I took the blow.

    I had bruised ribs and that wasn’t pleasant...that I got from some bare knuckle boxing when I was younger.

    Ice bath and hot tub if you can manage getting in and out..maybe not worth it though. You could invest in some bourbon

    For those that have not enjoyed the experience, there is not much you can do. I asked the doc about wrapping me up, he said no, better you know your limits. They could give pain meds then you'd just think you were all better and make things worse.
