Re: Bruised Ribs Treatment

dispite current medical pracitce, take a 4 inch ace bandage and wrap your chest. make it rather tight, yes you restrict breathing but at least you will feel like breathing. fwiw think 3 month till you feel better

if you bought it, a trucker brought it

It hurts. Keep taking deep breaths and coughing even though.

Re: Bruised Ribs Treatment

I feel your pain, been there several times before. I bruised them several times, cracked 2 ribs playing football and had pleurisy twice.
Best advices I can offer is take Aleve every 3 hrs for the pain, drink plenty of water and sleep sitting up and don’t exert yourself.
I wouldn’t wrap anything around the ribs since that might make the pain less but it will also restrict your breathing and an ole fella like you could end up with pneumonia. Sorry to say the only thing that makes the pain go away is time.
Get Well

Re: Bruised Ribs Treatment

You should go get an xray and have a doc look at it. Just to monitor the healing if nothing else. Especially if you are over 50.

No offense to anyone that replied I'm sure what they are telling you worked for them but taking medical advice on a message board.... (well do I need to say anymore )

You mean you're not comfortable putting your life in the hands of the universal forum??

No wrap on the ribs as already stated. It will feel better but restricting your breathing. Your lungs need to work and get rid of the fluid. Keep a pillow handy for when you need to cough.

Think before you share your thoughts!!!

You are so very right, and most are devoted Proctologists who always keep their heads in their work.
