Ribs Are Still Broken

Update - getting around a lot better but there are still a lot of things I can barely do - like pick things up off the floor, take a deep breath, and go #2.

Prescription pills ran out today, so now I'm down to plain old ibuprofen.

Sleeping OK, so that's nice; but it takes a long time and a mental diversion to stand up.

My posture is suffering from favoring the injured side so my back is getting kind of sore, but when I try to walk straight my ribs complain.

Typing is also very draining... time for a nap.

Oh.... the really great news... I haven't sneezed ONCE in the last week.

Ugh! Sorry to hear that! Been there, done that ( a few times)

Дon't sneeze, Дon't laugh.

I read about study that just concluded: 10 mg of Ibuprofen per Kg of body weight taken every 6 hours is as effective as morphine, the study was specific to pediatric broken bone pain.

That is a healthy dose, 5 x 200 mg Advil for a guy my size.

I have been using that much pre-ride as a P.E.D. for my arthritic knee. Does the trick.

I hope you get good relief if you try taking a 10mg per Kg every 6 hours dose.
