Oh i have been telling my mom about this since i got home last night lol i am gonna wait a few days and see if it dosnt feel a little better becuase if i go to a doctor they will tell me i shouldnt go to school (not like they could cast it or anything) and if i miss muhc more school they might not let me pass...my grades are fine but its some law about no matter what your grade if you miss 9 classes you fail so i am gonna try to avoid going to the doctor becuase i will just end up not istening to him anyways
I dont usually go out to these type things its like once a year and i always forget how easy i break lol ...i broke my ankel 8 times in one year a few years back

You poor thing...I hope you feel better. You should definitely tell your parents and have yourself looked at by a doctor.

Now for my motherly lecture...never, but never do you push yourself into a crowd. I am sure many of you are too young to remember the deadly Who concert where fans were literally trampled to death. Since that incident, many venues and bands refuse to allow open seating. The risk to your life is not worth a better view of the band. You can still hear the music from the "cheap seats" just as good (if not better) than you can from down in front.

Oh, you poor thing. I broke two of my ribs when I was 17. Didn't go to the doctor...big mistake. Go to the doctor. Lots of pain and then ended up getting really sick...fluid in my lungs and throwing up. Let me tell you throwing up with 2 broken ribs is horrible. I would rather go through labor ten times over then go through that again. We have a law here were I live about missing school but if you have a doctors notes that states you cannot go to school the school will send a tutor/teacher to your house. Technically you are still attending school, just in your home. Look into it and go to the doctor.

OUCH! I hope you feel better soon. I would go to the doctor to have it checked out. I've heard of broken ribs puncturing a hole in a lung.

Found this on MDAdvice.com
SIGNS & SYMPTOMS
--------------------
# Severe pain at the fracture site.
# Tenderness to the touch.
# A feeling that the "wind has been knocked out" (sometimes).
# Abdominal pain if the fractured ribs are below the diaphragm (the 11th and 12th ribs).
# Severe chest pain when coughing, sneezing or breathing deeply.
# A feeling of small air pockets under the skin of the chest or neck if the lung has been injured and leaked air.
# Swelling and bruising over the fracture site.

WHAT TO EXPECT
========================================
APPROPRIATE HEALTH CARE

# Doctor's diagnosis.
# Application of a wide elastic wrap or chest binder to decrease movement of the chest muscles and reduce pain with breathing. The binder should be applied around the lower chest beneath the breasts, even if the rib fracture is in the upper chest.
# Hospitalization if symptoms of injury to the lung, spleen or liver appear. Blood or air in the chest may need to be removed if the lung is punctured from the raw edge of a fractured rib. A lacerated liver may need to be surgically repaired. A ruptured spleen frequently requires surgical removal.

DIAGNOSTIC MEASURES
--------------------
# Your own observation of symptoms.
# Medical history and exam by a doctor.
# X-rays of the ribs and vertebral column. Early X-rays may not show fractures if they are not dislocated, but repeat X-rays taken 4 or more days later usually reveal them. The early treatment for an uncomplicated rib fracture is the same as for bruised ribs, so a delay in diagnosis does not hinder treatment.

POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS
--------------------
# Rupture of the lung with bleeding or escape of air into the chest wall or under the skin in the neck.
# Injury to the liver if the right 11th or 12th ribs are fractured and have jagged edges.
# Injury or rupture of the spleen if the 11th and 12th ribs on the left are fractured and have jagged edges.
# Prolonged pain and slow healing.

PROBABLE OUTCOME
If this is a first-time chest injury and there are no complications of internal injury, proper care and sufficient healing time before resuming contact sports should prevent later complications. Healing is usually complete in 4 to 6 weeks.

HOW TO TREAT
========================================
NOTE -- Follow your doctor's instructions. These instructions are supplemental.

CONTINUING CARE
--------------------
# Use the binder or wrap as long as needed for pain and support--usually 4 to 6 weeks.
# Use an ice pack 3 or 4 times a day. Place chips in a plastic bag. Wrap the bag in a moist towel and place over the injured area. Use for 20 minutes at a time.
# After 2 or 3 days, if heat is more soothing than ice, use heat lamps, hot soaks, hot showers or heating pads.[/B]

Lilly.... get some Viactiv....they are like carmel chews and they are delicious... each one has 500 mg. of calcium plus Vitamin D and K, which helps the absorption of calcium. Drug stores and grocery stores carry them. Or try some yogurt and cheese. You can get calcium from sources other than milk. If you have soft bones you may get little fractures in your spine as you age and you will end up with a humped back... you don't want that!! :eek:

You can also take calcium pills. I take one everyday, since I don't drink enough milk. I also eat a lot of cheese. I love string cheese.
