Damn. Checkin In. Question about ribs.
Toasted some ribs at Mammoth when I hit the top end of a snag that had fallen over after I hit some ice skiing some tight trees and missed the predetermined line I needed to be on.
Could have been a lot worse. It's been ten days now; and I've broken and bruised ribs before - they hurt for what seems forever - but mine are now moving around and popping when I roll over in my sleep. That hasn't happened before.
Anyone else ever had this happen?

Yeah, but in my case it wasn't the rib that was broken it was the cartilege that joins it to my sternum.
I was told to wrap it tight, not cough and don't do anything stupid until it stops moving accidentally and then give it another few weeks before any hard contact.

Is it your rib/cartilege that's popping or your skin? Hopefully you're not having "Rice Krispy" skin ...

No rice krispy skin. What would that indicate?
It had been about ten days of taking it very easy when this happened.
Have a definite sunken area in one rib. Felt one rib pop back in on my back right after I stood up when it happened. Had a foot long bruise, but that's gone now. I usually don't bruise easily. Felt like the rib popped. It was enough to wake me up while asleep. I spent most of the last week or so sleeping on my back and felt good enough to sleep on my stomach if I put a pillow under my stomach to kind of suspend my ribs in the air. Since this happened it's been hurting more. Very weird.
