fractured ribs. Means they are cracked but not snapped. Fell onto my bike a week ago. They are causing physical discomfort and memory crap. we will be OK, however. There was a struggle with a doctor. I had checked and there was a female on. I said I wanted her. He showed up. "You were serious about that?" he said before going off in a huff. Obviously, he has not been brought into the latest women's rights movement.

ouch! what did the dr say for you to do? and that man dr is an idiot.

She was very kind. She listened to what I said and then moved onto what brought me in. She examined me gently and sent me for x-rays. Came back and told me about the fractures. "Yes there was something causing pain" she smiled. I am not allowed to bike for at least 2 more weeks, have to watch heavy lifting and just use Tylenol. I am to go back there or to my doctor if I develop signs of a chest infection. That is all they can do.

a long time ago they used to wrap the whole chest area with tape i think... maybe that is for when the ribs have snapped.

i sure hope you start to feel better soon.

It is OK. I sleep a lot to ignore pain. They stopped wrapping as it slowed healing and created more risk of pneumonia etc. Sometimes I push too hard but I catch myself. It will come. No biking for a ride.
