I’d agree there. Hope you’re over it Hawglette.

Thanks guys. I'm gonna live.

I took meds 3 times yesterday and that final dose knocked it down to being manageable. Today, it's just that typical day after migraine hangover.

Update on my injury. I crashed on Thursday. Ribs hurt but my upper right pectoral muscle hurt the worst. I managed to deal with the pain and kept right on working my very physical job. I worked every day since right through the weekend. Yesterday or shall I say last night after work [Monday] my right ribs hurt so bad I couldn't even take a breath. Every move I make every breath I take, serious pain. Zero sleep last night. Today’s a day off from work. I’m pondering getting X-Rays but I know they are fractured and there’s normally nothing that they can do for the healing process. I suppose it could help me get out of physical labor at my work so I don’t injure them worse. I just paid off all my medical bills from when I thought I was having a heart attack several months ago and here I am facing more bills if I go in.

Update: I’m at Urgent Care waiting room right now. I tried going though my primary care physician for an appointment but all are closed an or booked up due to Covid. The closest appointment was for tomorrow and an hour plus away to Denver. I ended up going to the closest Urgent Care that is connected to my insurance, which is a half hour away to Longmont. Here I sit waiting my turn.

Looks like 2-3 hour wait just to be seen due to Covid. Then who knows how long for x-rays.

I couldn’t take the pain anymore and figured if I’m diagnosed with fractures at least I’m covered for some time off or light duty at work for awhile.

Sounds a lot like fractured ribs. They take a year to get rid of.

Yeah this mess makes hospitals a nightmare

Take care you make sure you alert family. They can’t come visit but they can help in other ways

DJ, if they keep you overnight, ask them for morphine. You may have to put on a drama show to convince them but I'm quite sure that you're up to it. If they send you home, tell 'em you want a prescription for Oxy.

Sounds like the work you do aggravates the injury quite a lot. Not that it helps at all, but this too shall pass. If you get the pain killers, go easy on them.

Ray, pretty sure you hit the nail on the head with my physical work aggravating it.

Update on my injury: My X-Ray results came back as no rib fractures. It’s hard for me to believe having had ribs and sternum fractures in 2014. This injury feels identical to that except the sternum which was the most painful injury I’ve ever had. This injury is going down as soft tissue trauma for now. Pending if it heals up in several days. If not they will re-do some X-Rays and maybe an MRI. In the meantime I’m off work for a couple of days. I’ll probably go in anyway and try to do some light duty work.

Don't push it until some bones DO break, DJ. Intercostal muscle/nerve pain can easily eclipse broken rib bones. I've had both, more than once. I can attest to this.

Same here, many injuries both bone breaks and soft tissue trauma. The soft tissue trauma has always surpassed the pain level than broken bones. Time will tell on the the speed in which I recover. I’m not out chasing the gnar like I was years ago. If it comes up I’ll do my best to slay it or hop off and walk it. No shame in walking sections you feel you can’t make it to the other side safely. At my age I’ve learned a thing or two about pain.

Start by slaying some of the features in your neighborhood, right outside your door.

DJ, this was a clear message from Management to you, that you are being stooopid. And stoopid lands to crashes. And crashes lead to pain and lost time at work, which they don't look upon too kindly, especially after the first time.
Ride that killer new trail shredder on gravel/pavement/fire road until ALL your pain is gone and you can't make it come back. Get the leg muscles bulging and the HR/BP down. That's what you ought be doin' for rehab..
C'mon DJ, we're all pulling' for ya, but yer sounding just a bit hopeless here......Please learn!!!

Dawn Patrol ride this morning (5:30am) with my good bud Luis. Brown Mtn/El Prieto was owned by us and only us. We beat the heat, the crowds, and the sun. It was so peaceful for most of the ride. Crowds started to show when we were about 2/3 the way through El P.

13.81 miles
1959' gain

Thanks. You've got to get into a mental groove because the trails here often just keep going up, up, and more up. :shock:

The reward is down, down, and more down on the return, though. :D

I'm at 243,000' gain for the past 12 months which is about 15,000' more than the year prior. In truth, that's child's play compared to some of what my riding buds put out. One guy isn't happy unless he hits at least one million feet gain per year! :shock:

Well I pedaled out to the tip of the Point on my "new" Townie, and then even coasted down the road too the lighthouse and the "SPAWARS" facility, previously known as dolphin tanks, since they used to have lots of dolphins
swimming around in them. Then I pedaled right back up to the top. I got no idea what kinda elevation that is except that it seems biblical in proportions to me. (And the dolphins too, I'd imagine).
Anybody know some elevation numbers, please toss 'em out here. No.....second thought, don't. I might have some kinda post-ride stroke or something, even though it felt a HELLA better once I did it. I guess I'ma have to get me a garmin or something that won't toss my stats up there with all the other poor shlubs in public.....Birthdays coming' up....

Believe me, Mini, I'd never and I mean NEVER happily belong to such a club, but it's part of maintaining a good bid'ness profile, so, I climb, I climb, and then, I climb some more.
That's the kinda Patriot I am!

But you are right there, mate. Itsa' big big hassle, mate...
