Broke my rib AGAIN!

Recommended Posts

I broke my rib 3 weeks ago.....busted it again while stretching out carring a light box of stuff.:banghead: I felt the pop, and then the pain, oh the pain!

Whats up with that?

Did I screw it up even worse?

At a minimum I suppose that I set myself back 3 weeks.

Its highly unlikely that you made is seriously worse. Everyone has some clicking or popping during their recovery.

Thanks for the input.

The pain has subsided substantially to the point before I thought I busted it again.:banghead:

I'll not be reaching outward to push/pull/pickup weight anymore. :banghead:

I was told (by someone who damaged their's) that there is a piece of cartilage on the end of your ribcage and the bottom that is extremely easy to snap and very painful.

I wonder if that's what you damaged. But Dr. Mark would be better to ask.

I had the same feeling myself. Just for the record I think a rib injury is the MOST pain I have ever felt.

My Doc. said the second pain was probably muscle tear or cartlidge I can't remember, but he said the tissues around the ribs after an injury are like cold molassis or cold taffy(if you can imagine), no stretchy just easy to snap. It's been awhile but I think I'm close to right. Maybe the Doc. will chime in.
