Back into the ER this morning, New level of pain I don't think I have ever experienced before. Good news is my lung is doing great. bad news is that ribs hurt a LOT.. even more than when it happened. More pain pills I guess. Lucky that I have a wife that can handle getting me to the ER and a son who has a strong shoulder to lean on. Back home but I guess I have to really take it easy for a bit.

Be glad you don't have to sneeze or cough with sore ribs. You might see God and you'll think he's mad at you! I found out the hard way. Chumly

I have done enough coughing to know that I don,t want to do that again.Last time I don't recall this much pain!

Now I get the added joy of dealing with the Insurance company as my work has decided to go with a provider and I get to do the job done by the HR department. HR now just directs you to a website....

Could have been worse. I had congestive heart failure a year ago and they cut my rib cage right down the middle. Couldn't lift over 10 pounds for 3 months after, wasn't supposed to drive for 4 weeks, the releasing nurse miss-stated that as 4 days was sore driving the first week.

Once you've been, poked, prodded and filleted for 3 weeks, everything else is easy.

I got a pig valve as a replacement, and I like bacon, does that make me a "cannibal"?
