sleev-les Another revive. Landed on my ribs this past Saturday. Don't even know how I did it other than I went off a jump and ended up sideways :/ I rode about 4 more runs after, just easy because I didnt want to hurt myself further then gave up for the day. I'm hoping its nothing too major, but it doesn't hurt to breath I really take a large breath or cough (and yeah, I have a cold and coughing so it figures). Its definitely not as bad as Saturday, but still hurts. Playing it safe and staying away from the slopes since I dont want to risk more injury and missing my vermont trip next month.

Lagomorphic Sounds like it's time to go to the Dr, Anticrobotic.

It's a good idea to go to the Dr any time you think you broke a rib. When I broke mine, I had no idea that it had punctured my lung - I didn't notice any difficulty breathing. But I ended up getting a chest tube, put on oxygen and kept in the hospital for a few days.

(Of course, I had also broken my collarbone, another rib and shoulder blade at the same time, so I have to admit I wasn't paying a lot of attention to my breathing . . . )

Anticrobotic This wasn't quite what I had in mind when I revived the thread. Oh well...

No kidding! Approximately the same week as Poutanen slammed (middle of March) I caught an edge in whiteout and landed with ribs on my right elbow. Very sore in the front of my ribcage, and intense pain in the right side of my back. Rolling over in bed was pure torment.

Didn't see a doctor because I knew they can't do much about it. And slowly I've been healing up. But now, three months later, it's getting worse again. It hurts in the back of my ribcage when I'm lying down, the rib hurts when I'm twisting my torso...

What's this? Pinched nerves?

jdmccright Prob broke a rib. Its painful but it will heal in about 3 months. Prob should go to a doc so you can get an x ray to confirm. That is if you have $500 laying around.

Joe77 Last friday i fell on my left deltoid during a flat 180 switching regular to goofy while practicing carves on an intermediate blue. My shoulders were pushed back towards my lower neck and it hurts to raise my left arm or put a shirt on. It's feeling better today.

Yeah exactly! Last run of the day is not the day to work on something new. If I had just done a grab I would've been fine.

Donutz, I think I basically landed ribs first into a fairly hardpacked landing. It was right on the armour pieces but this was more of a blunt force slam than a sharp poke. Actually I took an elbow to the ribs (my own elbow!) last season at Kimberley while wearing the armour. It hurt like hell but I was able to continue boarding for the rest of the trip. I think without it would have been worse!

Also I've had some elbow hits and slid down some rocks since buying the armour, got back up with narry a scratch and rode on. But it still won't protect me from everything!
