Gypsy, I had the same thing happen back in Aug. '20 when I was clearing branches after a storm. Got one foot caught in the smaller branches of a large branch & didn't realize it until I started to walk away. Came down hard on edge of road pavement. Hurt like a mutha. I thought I might have broken a rib; but x-rays showed no break.

Used NSAIDs (Indocin 75 mg. - prescription). Didn't think of the patches. But as others have said, it will take 4-6 weeks for the pain to completely subside. Sorry for your injury. Rest up and heal. Take good care of yourself.

p.s.: I don't want to fall on ice - I don't bounce as well as I used to.

I too bruised up some ribs last year getting groceries out of the back of the SUV. Foot slipped and I came down on the tailgate.

It took a looooong time to heal and I was in a lot of pain for about 2 weeks befor it STARTED to heal.

All advice is spot on.



Go get some BBQ! I hear eating ribs helps with rib healing!

Ouch! I didn't bounce either, hope you're all healed up!

Hope you're healed up. That is some sound advice right there, nothing better than some baby backs!

The Salonpas patches are definitely helping. This will be a lay low weekend I look forward to some rest and relaxation.

That's good to know, and glad you're on the mend. Not like the weather in our AO is beckoning many to want to run outside & play...

It is waaaay too cold for me. I like winter in general but this is crazy! Stay safe and keep warm!

Sorry for your fall, Gypsy, and for the fact that, at first, I misread you post as being Braised Ribs in the Guerilla Gourmet thread. Heal quickly!
