    Sorry to hear about your accident. Did you get an X-ray for your ribs? Might wanna do that to be sure there's no fractures. Fracture 3 of mine's a while back and it hurts real bad.

    Get well soon V.

    Wow well maybe time for some meds to take the edge off!

    If it makes you feel better just to see a Dr. here without any medications or anything costs me about 2,000B. Maybe I'm getting the stupid farang charges, but it seems like it would be a lot more for some stitches too!

    Anyway, rest up and take care of those wounds.

    correct V - xrays on the ribs don't help as nothing they can do if they are broken (done both sides of mine kitesurfing) ...
    Might not be a break, could be damaged cartilage ... either way, the worst thing is sleeping with damaged rib(s) ... takes a while for 'em to heal too ... best of luck ... maybe try and get some 'Tramadol' for the pain
    (I went to the local Doc's surgery here after a while, and he gave me an injection of some sort to speed up recovery/relieve the inflamation - sort of helped)

    (or maybe get 'medicinal mariuana' sent over from the States with your next OB GLV order - make sure it's not posted with a CJxxxx number tho ... lol)

    Tell me about it, it's freaking painful for sure..
    Yep, it's the same side i think which i fell on a few years back when i fell off some step ladders in the garden, that took months to start to feel better....and I am sure it wasn't as painful as this then...
    Well I need something, it's the worst pain i've felt in a long time....

    Tramadol is pretty strong for an over the counter drug. Probably worth a try, I've never asked the Dr for anything because Tramadol is usually enough.

    Adding my condolences to all the others. Also to say it does sound like it could have been worse- not saying it's not bad enough already though.
    Keep an eye on the wound- these things can turn nasty in this climate.
    I don't think you will find Tramadol 'over the counter' any more- thanks to the recent Govt. edicts.

    I just bought some a couple of weeks ago for my girlfriend since she got her wisdom teeth out. I actually asked about the legality and he told me that as of that time he was still allowed to sell it. TIT so who knows, but it definitely wasn't something difficult to find...

    Yeah with cracked ribs there is not a lot that can be done other than rest and pain killers. Did mine in when I was knock off the CBR1100. Took weeks to heal.
    Don't be taking huge lung hits on 12mg or high juice as the slightest cough really hurts. No laughing either :)
