Thanks guys for the input. I think i'm def gonna get me some crash pads.
And yes it used to hurt so bad. But now its so much better. It still hurts when i sit, but i try to lean forward and not sit on soft surfaces. lol. Anyways the pain was not like a week ago, when i was still smarting from a bruised rib as well. Had so much trouble finding the right position to go to sleep.
