This is the thing that happened- but two ribs down. It’s weird and uncomfortable and no one tells you of the surprising side effects of pressure on your abdomen…….
(addit- okay so I actually chipped off some cartilage. Now that the inflammation and pain have gone I can really get a good feel and there is a bit of solid mass that’s like the shape and size of a pumpkin seed that can be pushed over the rib, and I can feel a very deep furrow under it. So I think I have a fair bit of healing to go!
