Do NOT try surfing until it's completely healed or you are only going to make it take longer to heal!
I hate broken ribs. They hurt.

Bub wrote:Hea, if you read my posts from late summer or fall, I cracked my ribs surfing as well. Do you recall how you cracked yours? I'm pretty sure that mine were cracked just from paddling and arching my back upward putting all of the pressure onto one point on my ribcage against the hard board surface. It took about 6-8 weeks before the pain went away. I tried surfing again and re-agrivated my ribs. I'm going to try wrapping ribs next time under wetsuit. I'm a little gunshy though since I've injured ribs every time.

Bub wrote:My ribs feel fine now. I haven't surfed since early November. I cracked them in July. Then in November when I tried surfing again, I was fine paddling around for about 5-10 minutes and then the pain came back. The doctor gave me some anit-inflamatory pills and the pain went away in 3 days (as opposed to 4-6 weeks last time). I have alot left over pills that I'm saving for next summer (just in case). If it weren't illegal, I send you a few pills in the mail
Everything you described with your ribs was exactly the same as me (right side only, hurts to lay on it etc.)
