Ouch, I feel for you.
Been there, done that a couple of years ago when the front wheel of my fixed gear got caught in a gap in the pavement. Bruised my right side ribs - doctor said a good bruise actually hurts more than a broken rib. I´m inclined to believe him.
Takes a couple of weeks to go away. And yeah, sneezing or laughing is no fun at all.
Be glad you didn't break one! Bruised is bad enough. My ex broke a rib falling over a telephone poll being used as a parking header in a lot once. Fell face forward with her hands underneath her and that's what did it. First time I ever saw her cry she was in so much pain. I feel for ya, Dan. Get well, brother. It just takes time.
Bass player for Mars Vilta and other top bands Juan Alderete also recently was in a bicycle accident. He ended up in a comma. Hoping he gets better. He was wearing a helmet and he was the only one involved in the accident.
Man good luck. Hope you feel better soon. Never broke a rib, but I did break my shin bones on my bass leg clean in 2 when I was 17. Rehabbing that was rough. Took me 8 months to heal. 20 years later still have pops and cracks in my knee and ankle but still grooving.
