I cringe at the very thought. The problem with busted ribs was that there was no real treatment, other than just allowing time to heal the fracture, and basic movements could be excruciating. Getting out of bed, for me, often involved rolling sideways off the edge of the bed, manouevring to then get arms onto the bed, then pushing up, like doing a press up, and from there pulling up my feet slowly until able to stand, all the while trying not to bend at the waist.I used to play prop at rugby. I was smaller in build than was usually expected of someone playing in that position. I once managed to get lifted by the forces from front and rear and was bent double. Something went ping. It was a rib dislocating from cartilage.
'Excruciating' didn't do it it justice.
And the missus would say, "Does it hurt ?"
