It's the busted rib club! I cracked 3 ribs yesterday with a slip on the icy driveway. Pretty tough pain the last couple of days. It looks like a few weeks off work. Any other club members here? Ouch!

No broken ribs, but I did manage to fracture both my arms at the same time once.  Luckily, one was still usable throughout the ordeal.  Sucks man, I wish you a speedy recovery!

I think I'd take the ribs over both arms!

I broke several ribs many years ago, if I remember correctly
it wasn't to bad ---as long as you did not try to move or breath.

No ribs, however almost 4 years ago I fell off a ladder and fractured the Tibia Plateau in 3 places and broke the fibula in my left leg. I still have a 2.5 mm displacement on the out corner. That took me almost a year to walk again.

[12] Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. [13] And ye shall seek me, and find me , when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

I fell 16’ from a ladder and broke both of my heals. The left one has a plate, 11 screws, 2 pins and a wire in it. 
I also broke my ribs at what I think is called the sternum, I’ll show you the lump Saturday morning. 
If you are not up to driving Saturday morning yet I can swing by and pick you up.

Thanks Greg, I'll know more mid week. The dope they gave me for the pain helps, but sneeze, cough,laugh or hick up and it sends you into orbit.

I broke my ribs a few years back, couldn't work for 6 weeks. Fell off a saw horse, landing on a retaining wall.
It ended up that I was able to attend my first Convention in Las Cruces, haven't missed one since.
Thanks again Mel for helping me out at the last minute.

Hope you get to feeling better soon! I cracked a couple taking a head off a 454 when the milk crate flipped while standing on top of it and leaning over the fender holding the head. It isn’t pleasant.

Cracked two ribs playing hockey years ago. I remember that trying to sleep at night was brutal. Hope you’re feeling better soon!

Been there done that two tears ago, servicing the snow blower and doing a test and tune late at night. Pain was so intense I wrapped up the test went to bed and woke up in the morning and could barely move. Worked through it but the pain and tenderness lasted for months.
It will take time, feel better.

i fell straight on my back and butt about a week and a half ago and got my tail bone, still hard to put my shoes on and bend over but it gets better every day. i forgot about the ice and was walking normally and then i was flat on my back a millisecond later, lesson learned always remember the ice.

I've broken ribs so many times I've lost count. The worst was a fall when an extension ladder kicked out form under me--move the ladder, don't overreach!--and I broke four ribs in the front and three in the back--the same ribs. I couldn't breathe because the whole side of my chest just flapped in and out instead of drawing air in. I was bedridden for a month before I could do much of anything.

Broken ribs are extremely painful, and the only cure is time. Just take it very easy for a while, and avoid folks who like to tell jokes!
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

Timm, ain't it the truth about laughing! I think the worst is coughing. I just got over a cold/chest congestion a week or so ago. I can't imagine getting a coughing or sneezing jag going in this shape. I have to inhale on this plastic bong looking thing a few times an hour to help clear the lungs of congestion. Being vertical seems to help your lungs stay clear. I can see how people who are bed ridden with anything are real prone to getting pneumonia on top of whatever else put them there.

Yeah, it sucks.

When I broke the ribs front and back--what the medical folks call a "flail chest", it had to be taped tightly to allow me to breathe. This was once done for all broken ribs, and often resulted in pneumonia. I had a hard time keeping my lungs clear for the several weeks I was unable to even sit up or roll onto my side.

That was pretty much the takeaway at the ER, breath deep, even if it hurts and don't wrap them. I've found out that a cane is handy, not for walking, but for hooking and dragging things closer to you on the sofa, hooking onto nearby furniture to help pull yourself up, etc. You tend to plan ahead what you might want while you are up.

My ribs are sore as I type this comment.  Fell on the ice yesterday and my ribs hit the railing going down the steps.
