Woe is me 😢🤕 Im feeling a bit sorry for myself. Well actually I’m frustrated and bored but it amounts to the same thing. I had a moderately bad cold last week, but the coughing was so bad that I’ve damaged my ribs. I went to the doctors (I wouldn’t normally but OH made me!) and she said it’s either a bad sprain of intercostal muscles or a rib fracture or possibly both - doesn’t matter anyway because prognosis and treatment is the same. She’s given me co dydramol for pain relief which seems pretty good (pain is quite bad and very annoying) but said it could take up to 6 weeks to heal!!!!!!! That’s ages seeing as I can hardly do anything because nearly all movements make it worse. Has anyone had this and can give me any better news? I was hoping she was just giving me absolute worst case scenario but it certainly hasn’t got any better in the first 5 days.
