    Hope you feel better, Dalton. Hurts to even breathe deep with broken ribs. Take it easy.

    Deep breathing is important with broken ribs to prevent pneumonia. Get a pillow, hug it tight over the ribs, and deep breath several times per hour, and keep up the pain pills. They say you should cough also, but in my experience that's asking an awful lot. Just use your full lung capacity as much as possible.

    Logically, yes this makes the ribs healing take a little longer. But broken rib pain wont kill you, pneumonia will.

    Hopefully your medical people told you all this, but I wanted to reinforce it. Get well soon and enjoy the pills.

    Of course if yourdoctor told you different, follow his instructions.

    Wow! Sorry to hear that... I can't imagine how badly broken ribs hurt.

    My father-in-law has low blood pressure, and he was told to eat lots of salt...

    Weird...

    Agreed. Broken ribs hurt!

    That 80/40 bp doesn't sound good.

    98 over 68 is actually normal but it can be considered low. My bp goes all over the place with stress and I have had it so low that I felt weak and dizzy. Too high sometiems too when sick and I feel the same way then. I have had broken ribs in the past and it does hurt. I hope you get better quick. Try some Vicodin..thye work well.
