bruised rib
This discussion is related to bruised rib?.


I recently fell on steps at work and bruised my ribs. At the emergency room they took x-rays and a cat scan just to make sure that I didn't hurt my kidney. I hurt my bottom two ribs on my right side. They told me that their really isn't much they or I could do. They perscribed pain meds and rest. Getting up and down is a real problem. I forgot to ask the doctor if using a heating pad on my ribs is a good idea.

did the heating pad help you? i dumped my moterbike and slammed into the pavement on my left side my ribs aren't broken, but feels like it. I taped myself (husband did) but pills aren't helping and wondered if heating pad will work. Doc didn't see anything on x-rays well ER Doc anyway. thankyou
