I believe I broke some ribs last night when I fell full force on the trampoline of my youngest son. I fell full force on the metal bars ( nope I was not lucky enough to hit the bouncy part )and half of my body got crunched. its hard for me to breath in and man I hurt bad. How long does it take ribs to heal and what did you do to speed healing? I can not miss work!! I guess I live and learn and make sure things are always put away right I usually have a neat and clean home, but yesterday they wanted the trampoline in the living room so I let them .any good remedys would help ( and no I will not go to the doctors I do not want her to make me stay off work and I know she will !
