Hello guys and girls, I had the misfortune of being smashed in the ribs by a body hook last week during sparring and it flipping hurt. It hurt quite a lot. It still hurts in fact. Being the imbecile I am I elected to finish the round and tried to do a few more but the pain and impairment to my breathing and mobility forced me to sit out. I have RICED all week thinking it was just bruised but some prodding and poking has revealed that my left lower rib is popping and clicking. Google fu has revealed it may be a seperated rib: it matches all my symptoms. I am making a GP appointment for next week but to be honest I'm not expecting themto be able to do much. Has anybody ever experienced one of these and is there anything they would reccommend to ease and speed up recovery?
