Have you ever broken your ribs?

Nope.  I have a bad habit of dislocating my ribs in the back along my T spine.  Sometimes moving or twisting the wrong way will do it.  While it is not horribly painful, it is a constant state of just being pretty severly uncomfortable.  When you cough or deep breath is not really fun.  Any bending over to pick up a wieght bar or a french fry that you have dropped can be a little tender.

 

The real fun come when the chiropractor gets to pop it back into place.  The first time I had it done he popped it back in and it was so intense that I just lay there on the table and broke out into a cold sweat right after he did it.  He was making fun of my wussiness and it hurt my feelings.

Last February I broke all of the ribs on my right side, and think I might have broken one this past Sunday.

 

I seem to remember you complaining about that last year.  Didn't we tell you to HTFU, and didn't it help?

 

How did break one last weekend?

how do you think I might have broken it?

I was not violently scissoring

 

Ok, you could have been mountain biking, you could have been road biking.  You also could have fallen down stairs or off a ladder.  You could have laughed so hard at a SW joke that you just broke it in two.   All we really know is that you don't scissor violently, or at all, possibly.

you know those steel grates they use as a road surface on drawbridges? In this area the use them in some areas to cover drainage ditches that are crossing roads.

It was raining Sunday night, and I slid out on the wet grate surface. Nothing major.

I can't imagine how that feels. when I hear your stories I feel like such a wus! 

no I have not, but I have dislocated my shoulder a few times, broke my radius, and also broke a toe or two...

the box i was carrying broke my rib but probably saved me from a broken wrist or messed up shoulder which I'm sure would be much worse.

I did karate for a short time.  I got kicked by a girl, she was a black belt.  I think she broke a rib.  It made crunchy noises for a couple of years.  It only hurt a little.

 

You people are wussies.

So you get beat up by a girl and we're wussies? :scratch head:  :scratch head:  :dontknow:

The answer is an unequivocal "maybe".

I was snowshoeing and got the brain fart to "ski" down a wooded slope - squat down and keep the toes of the snowshoes up and you can kind of "surf" on the snow breaking in front of you.

It worked like a charm.

Naturally, I had to do it again,

This time, I forgot to keep the toes up enough, the snow piled up and I started tumbling. I broadsided a tree and laid there for a good five minutes trying to get my breath back. My buddy thought I was dead because I was so still, for so long.

It hurt like hell, for a long, long time. I never bothered to get x-rays because even if I cracked a rib, they don't do anything for it anyway.

They do - they check your urine for blood to make sure you didn't puncture a kidney.  Don't ask me how I know that!

serious? I know it's not a bone, but I do know a guy that injured his during sex, and has problems caused by the injury to this day.

 

No, just kidding.  But I think we've all had it bend the wrong way during sex at one point or another (typically during heated moments of monkey-sex in our earlier years) and that chit is not enjoyable.  These days I don't worry about that so much.  :D

Glad you're joking around. I know what you are talking about, but the guy I mentioned has a serious issue that isn't going to heal.

The guy is a serious douchebag, and he deserves all the problems it has caused him.
