Ribs hurt such alot after a week, Dennis had to call out of hours Doc Friday, paramedic arrived put a nebuliser on me and sats went up to 93 from 66, stabled at 91 and as everything else was fine and breathing back to normal decided not to admit me. GP came to see me Monday, have a chest infection now on a-bs coughing up alot of gunge which really hurts my ribs, all this because of the cracked ribs, he's prescribing stronger painkiller. Told me not to take steroids unless absolutely necessary, hopefully won't need them. Asked about a nebuliser and again he said not good to have one a home actually the paramedic said that as well because they are a last resort.
I'm worried about de-conditioning, lost a stone already and muscle, just too painfull to move about and get more breathless because of the ribs.
Anyway - onwards and upwards - it could be worse.
