:% :( : Ouch, much sympathy, I've been there twice and there's not a lot you can do. At least the constant pain will act as a reminder not to overdo it until things heal up a bit :wink: And like Monkeyfinger said, try and avoid sneezing......

If I may be bold and give some advice (!) I'd say don't go skating until it's totally healed. When I bust my ribs I got "cabin fever" and went skating again when they weren't fully healed. Had a very minor bail and bust the little fuckers again :shock:
