I played 18 today. For December 28th that is darn near a miracle in these parts. I even birdied the hardest hole on the front 9. But by the back 9 I was in extreme pain in my right pectoral region.
The pain is from my recent snowboarding trip. I’m a golfer. I’m a skier. I’m not a snowboarder. Though I snowboarded OK, I did manage some pretty hard wipe outs. One wipe out in particular left me in pain in the upper right chest. This wipe out involved me doing some kind of combination cart wheel front flips.
I now fear that I’ve cracked or broken a rib. The pain is certainly located in my ribs and not in the tissue outside. I guess I’m going to have to see the doc. Hopefully it’s only bruised ribs. I’ve read that cracked ribs can take 4 weeks or more to heal, and cracked ribs roughly 12 weeks.
