    years ago,my ex-boyfriend uppercut me about 6 times in the ribs, and it was the most painful experience of my life. now I have been hit in those same ribs twice. it wasn’t even that hard, but this last time,has gotten to be pretty bad. it seems pretty much like the first time-pain wise, but everytime it happens I seem to have major problems in the same area. right at the bottom of my breast and right below that. it feels kind of like something is poking inward and it is very painful. I can’t breathe. it’s not only that it hurts, the lung capacity is gone. if I breathe in as deep as I can, it is about a sixth of a normal calm breath. I can’t breathe in anymore than that. I was considering going to the emergency room, but was just wondering if it was completely neccessary. the first time this happened I called the hospital and asked them about it. they said I would just get an x-ray to make sure my lung wasn’t punctured and there was nothing else they could do about it. they said if my lung was punctured I would be coughing up blood. is there anyway I could have barely punctured my lung and not cough up blood and have gone this long(4-5 days) without serious medical problems if my lung was really punctured? sorry I’m so confusing

    Hi, my husband fell; has visited the e.r. doctor and was told he broke his 7 & 8 ribs on his left side ON the side of his body. Doctor gave him RX for Vicodin, 500 mg., and told him to take 2 of these along with 800 mg. Motrin for the pain. I didn’t think ibuprofen and acetimenophen were supposed to be mixed with each other.

    Yesterday I fell and hit my upper torso on a chair, well now it hurts to breathe or laugh, but it is not a horrible pain. I noticed that looking at both sides of my body that this rib seems more extended, and when I breathe I can hear a little popping sound, do you think I should go to the Dr? Thank you!

    I have 2 broken ribs and a laceration on my lower back from a fall. How long does it take for broken ribs to heal. 1)I would like to know if you need to have follow-up xrays? 2) Before my injury, I worked out and swam a lot at the YMCA. When is it ok to swim? Is it OK to go into steam room or sauna? Is it ok to get into the whirlpool? 3)Is there anything, as fasr as gardening or bending that I shouldn’t do? 4) How long should I be on Oxecodone & hoe much should I be taking after 3 weeks? Thank you very much! Beth
