Hi I tripped and fell hard on my side/ head a week ago and have cracked a couple of ribs. I have a lot to do at present with a house move and a very long journey in a weeks time. Fortunately I retired 2 weeks ago so don’t have to struggle into work. I’m also a carer for a dependent adult child.
I’m in my late 60s and quite petite. Any idea how long it will take to repair? Has anyone found ways to reduce the pain or help cope?
The things I find difficult apart from sneezing coughing and breathing are laying down, stretching up eg to peg the washing out or things away, opening drawers and carrying things! Any tips?
