Re: Broken ribs
Another helpful thing I’ve found is to press firmly on the affected rib if I have to sneeze or cough, it keeps it stable

Re: Broken ribs
The plug thing sounds awful. That said, I once stood on a dirty great nail that was sticking out of a pallet and it went deep into my foot. Sounds bad but I barely felt a thing, it must have been some sort of acupuncture spot or something

Yep I've done that.
It was the evening of a gig I was playing and the plug belonged to the Farfisa organ I was carrying at the time. It bled like crazy but I strapped my foot up and went to play the gig.
The venue (some toilet opposite the Hackney Grand) was freezing and our drummer was being a snarky twat all night. My bass head fell of the speaker cabs during our souncheck and the speaker jack punched a neat hole in the backplate. Our support were awful, the soundman dropped acid and decided to explore the full feedback possibilities of the PA, I into a fight with a guy in the audience as thrown a full can of beer at me and it hit me smack in the forehead. To top it off the promoter refused to pay us (although our drummer's twattish bad mood soon fixed that one).
All in all a pretty shit night.

Re: Broken ribs
I have.

It's ten seconds of agony and a sore foot for half a day.

(Well, it is if it doesn't get embedded in your sole.)

Bruised/broken ribs enter your soul*.


*Poetic language, and for the sake of the pun

Re: Broken ribs
But has anyone ever stood on a plug bare foot? Now that is PAIN. Ive done it but not too bad. Mate done it and ended up in A&E as a plug pin went through the bottom of the foot.

Re: Broken ribs
Odd that people know if they've broken or just bruised their ribs.

Unless the break is so severe that the rib comes out of place, the medics can't tell without an X-ray.

The three times I've done mine in, they told me that since the treatment for both is the same, they think the gain from an X-ray isn't worth the risk of an X-ray.

So I don't know if I've never broken my ribs, or broken them three times, or something in between.

I’ve figured the best way to get out of bed is to secure the duvet with one foot then hold onto the top end of the duvet and pull myself up

Re: Broken ribs
Same as Manuel. Slipped on the last couple of stairs indoors and that was it,fucking agony for days afterwards. Although i only bruised mine, my breathing became so difficult and painful the hospotal looked into possible pneumonia. And yes sneezing,which i usually enjoy became an absolute bastard.

Did mine when wave hopping on a jet bike in Poole Quay. Flat out going over the wake of a ferry and when a total cropper. Broke 4 ribs and punctured my lung. Hut like fuck for weeks.

Re: Broken ribs
On a scale of pain from personal experience stubbing your little toe really hard is a two when you split the "web" bit(similar to a foreskin zip affair)
Three broken ribs is a about a three,a snaped tibia and fibula after being hit by a jag was about a six although I passed out after looking at my leg,a severe gout attack is a seven pushing an eight where it's prolonged I suppose.
Hopefully I'll never experience a ten.
