Sucks.:hs: I hope mine isn't reoccurring.

For the love of god, do not come back early.
I had some cartilage damage between the ribs (hurts worst on deep inhales) and came back to training as soon as it stopped hurting, which was about a month and a half.
Then I reinjured it and was out for 3 and a half months. When I came back I really babied that area for a few more months, to the point that all the Brazillians made fun of me. When I finally DID go back to rolling 100%.... I injured it again. And that was 1 month away from the end of my contract, so I stopped training. That was 2 years ago. I'm only just now actually going back, and in the back of my head I'm paranoid my ribs will get re-injured again, like a facial cut that keeps getting re-opened.

So, yeah. Be patient. When a doc says you can go back to training, give it another month lol.

Thanks for the input. I guess I'm lucky that my bjj place lets me cancel/re up whenever I want.

Do your ribs look all funny like mine now? Popped left side and you can see it when I take my shirt off lulz.

Is it a popped rib head? I had that problem before. Got the chiro to pop it in a few times and stretched a lot more. It went away.

Nope. Everything looks normal, it's just a bit painful.

I'm not quite sure. Should I have a doctor check it out? I have shitty health insurance so I'd rather not if I can avoid it.

I had the same thing and after it not getting better I went to a chiro and 3 visits later it was fixed and hasn't hurt since.

I haven't ever been a fan of chiro's but this guy fixed me up.
