    The other day i had to go to A&E with severe chest pains after an accident at work. At first it was thought it was a heart attack, but after a few x-rays & blood tests it was found to be a few broken ribs!

    So i may not be around for a while sitting up hurts so spending a lot of time in bed. Hurts when i cough, breathe, eat etc.:cry:

    So lots of time to learn subnetting & hex:blink

    At least it's not fatal. A heart attack can be. Be thankful. :wink:

    Sympathies, MrNerdy ... I've broken 2 (separately) in the last few years, and it's nae fun !!! At the time, I was still smoking, so coughing was a nightmare. Physical work is also mind-numbing :cry:

    Painkillers and rest are about as much as the hossie will give you, but allow me to recommend a strap support for your ribcage, despite what the docs say. It really does help (don't wear it too tight) until the rib(s) fuse again.

    Yeps, I've been there too. Believe it or not, a couple of years ago a broke a rib SNEEZING!

    Though if you've heard me sneeze that probably isn't that unbelievable - I sometimes sneeze about a hundred times in ten minutes - and they are ridiculously loud.

    ALso, when i were a kid, I tore my ACL playing football. Couldn't walk properly and still can't run on it at any more than 90%. Shame really, cos I was very fit when i was young, but as soon as I did that I started to get fat, lazy, discovered beer and computers and that was it!

    Hope the ribs are better anyhoo!

    been 3 and a half weeks now and i'm still using a knee support to walk to work. the first doc said 6-8 weeks and the second said maybe up to 12 weeks till i recover which is frustrating as the footie season kicks off in 3 weeks :(

    I can imagin breaking a rib must of hurt. It never happened to me (thank god) and I hope it doesn't. But these days with sports you never know. I constantly play soccer and Kick boxing, tae kwon do and I do get hit in the chest a quite a few times. Got to be careful I guess.

    Anyways hope your recovery goes well and you will be up on your feet in no time.
