It seems early March is the month for injuries around here. Last year it was Poutanen and me cracking ribs, and this year all of this.

Glad nothings broken bro!
Must've been painful. But these things happen when we least expect it and usually somewhere we're familiar. I didn't even realize I dislocated my elbow when I fell until I stood up. Nothing worse than thinking you're bending your arm to zip up your jacket and realize it's just hanging there and not moving when you want it to.
You could've ruptured your spleen too landing on your left side. Get better soon man.

Glad to hear nothing is broken that that you are heading back out.
My season ended a week ago with displaced fractures of three ribs on my right side. I wish I could say I had a better story but I don't. I was on a very easy run following and coaching a few others when I went down. No idea why and never saw it coming. Pure inattention on my part. I had ridden very hard all day the day before so I was a bit tired and loose feeling.
Will be 10-12 weeks before I am able to do much physically so I am already planning the 1st trip of next season.
Enjoy the spring riding. Have fun and be safe.

Oh man that's rough. Glad to hear you're okay considering!
x2 on the arnica topically. It does wonders for blows, sprains, strains, contusions, and related soft tissue trauma. Also, ice. After a particularly nasty kick from a horse, I slathered on arnica immediately and on the hour. The following day I was looking forward to seeing a spectacular war-wound type bruise. There was only a slight hint of yellow, like the yellow after a bruise is mostly healed. Frankly, I was amazed. Still hurt a bit but healed up way faster than had I not used arnica (as compared to similar untreated impacts).

all this is making think to call it a season....
Zollimite and I were riding yesterday and he took a head shot and busted up ass cheek. We called it a day early, then I see Deacons message, now George
I'm sure others have been banged up this year. Seems like the worst case posts are starting to pop up as some of our seasons are winding down.
Sounds like you took a pounding on the rocks, but if your back out riding. One tuff as cowboy there !!!! Be safe my man !!!!
