    Displaced rib fractures

    5 weeks 4 days. physio went well. she told me all the ribs are tight and she had to get them to move again. that didn't hurt at all. no real pain just feels tight. went for a ride yesterday, i be lying if i said i wasnt nervous lol. once i got on the bike it felt good and the right hand just cracked it open lol.

    i was told that the breathing problems come from having the ribs hurt, so you breath shallow for a month and as you start to get better your breathing stays shallow. physio will help lppsen up the ribs and get me back on the bike asap lol

    The one i had on when i crashed was more of just a roost protector. here is the new one i just bought. It fits well with my bionic neck brace. It will be 3 weeks soon, starting to feel alot better now.
