    And they say exercise is good for you!  :o

    Do they? Whenever I get injured MrsLostSon responds with 
    "Well, if you will do stupid sports..."
    Sympathy? What's that?
    To quote an old friend (Who laughed at my injuries a lot) "It's in the dictionary between shit and syphilis"

    I broke 5 ribs a few years back coupled with an 80% pneumothorax - it smarted a bit ;)

    Coughing, sneezing and laughing all no no's for quite some time, enjoy ;)

    My daughter does Judo & the club is brilliant with superb coaches.
    She wanted me to try it, so I did. Despite being a good blue belt at BJJ I'm rightly back at white belt.
     It's tough but fun so far (2 classes)!

    Interesting night at Judo tonight.... Loads of new people of different grades there. We partnered up for the sparring, some guy threw me, landed on me..... And then my ribs made a very painful (and loud) cracking and popping noise.

    Just spent 4 hours in minor injuries unit (as our town got rid of the a and e...), only to be told there's 'probably' nothing sinister going on, and the ribs are probably just cracked and bruised.

    Oh, and got some strong painkillers.

    Not too sure what to think of that diagnosis... It bloody hurts, and taking a deep breath, coughing, crouching etc. all really hurt.

    Anyone else had the joy of rib injuries?
    Yes. I cracked my ribs whilst karting a few years ago. Some ****hole lost control and mykart got shoved sideways into the tyres. Ouch. Finished the race, though.

    You know that feeling when you go white as a sheet as the body goes into shock? Well that happened to me as I tried getting out of bed next morning. Ooooofffff! Severely uncomfortable for a few days, and took about 6-8 weeks to heal. The worst part was missing the rest of the hockey season as the accident happened mid-Feb.

    You have my sincere sympathy.

    I did judo when I was younger and I thought about it again a few months back as they hold it in the same club as my BJJ but the sport aspect of it annoys me. Ippon, move along. 
    Hope you like it though.

    First time I tried Judo, I managed to dislocate the small toe of the prettiest girl in the class, and kick my best friend’s dad (he was an Olympic level wrestler) in the balls so hard that he cried.

    That also happened to be the last time I did Judo...

    I wasn’t sure whether to LOL or wow that!
    Thankfully I safely navigated those obstacles! I did get thrown (gently) by a multiple Olympian, which was kinda cool. I also got called for “sand bagging” by a few of the black belts- apparently they could tell I’d done other grappling before (which I have- lots of BJJ).  

    To to return to the start... it’s been a day or two- how’s the recovery going @FarleyUK ?

    It's actually not too bad - lots of resting and playing Assassin's Creed (plus I have the house to myself this weekend!). Still very sore obviously, and I choked on some food earlier which was not a nice experience...!

    Managed to sleep ok last night, although driving is hard - drive a Honda Civic, and I'm 6ft 4, so getting in and out is bloody painful as it's so low down.

    The other annoying thing is, the day I fractured my ribs, I purchased a new car which in waiting on for collection... It's an suv though so should be easier on the ribs getting in and out!

    Also emailed work saying I'll be remote for at least this week.

    Update - holy hell am I sore. The weird thing is, it's not so much the front / side that hurts - it's round the back. Almost as though there's a load of bruising and knots there. It's pretty horrific when I try and lie down as well, something feels like it 'pings' or slips and causes a load of pain.

    Back on the painkillers I go...

    Also getting quite phlegmy, so trying to keep breathing deeply to stop any nastiness happening.

    Boil some water. Allow it to cool. Add a tea spoon of bicarbonate and some salt. Squirt this up each nostril and try not to swallow it. It’ll alkaline your nasal passages, remove mucus and ward off any potential bacterial infection

    i should add that this is was was prescribed to Mrs bob by the ENT specialist after a long period of laryngitis to remove mucus and ward of other infections. Our whole house including visiting relatives came down with the flu over Christmas (in fact it kept our visitors here for three weeks) and she escaped it.
