They hurt.
I’d take a broken arm, leg, nose yadda yadda over a broken rib anyday.

This is my 13th broken bone

How lucky or unlucky have you been with breaks?

19? Nice going…I guess :)

Yeah, ribs…there’s basically nothing you can do…just strap them up a little…but it still fucking hurts…sneezing, coughing, laughing….getting into bed….out of bed…shouting at your cats

breathing, eating, moving, thinking about moving… every last fucking thing you do makes that shit hurt.

Also, becareful about telling your girlfriend in bed a bad joke based around her…she might forget your injury and eldow you straight into your ribs…I tried not to completely go insane and yell at her…only because it would make it hurt more.

or when you have roommate that like to hug you an they had been gone for a week an didn’t know I broke them then he sneaks up behind me an hugs me… I though I was going to die from that pain.

I’ve never broken a bone, but I’ve fractured a knuckle from punching a kid in the head.

A fracture and a broken bone actually mean the same thing…

I’ve never broken a bone before. The closest thing to that is 4 torn tendons in my right leg.

I guess you’re right. I was thinking of a broken bone as more of a clean break. My knuckle only cracked a little bit, so I didn’t really consider it a break.

Some doctors use each word depend on the severity of the broken thing but, both words are interchangeable an mean the same thing.

I fell on my elbow the other day and got a pretty big scrape. Everything was okay, though, because I got to put on this really cool Power Rangers band-aid.
