That sucks. I am just getting better (almost pain-free) from 3 cracked ribs. Same as you -- fist under the rib cage as I slammed into the ground -- but on the right side.
It's been 3 weeks and only one still hurts when I move. The others are sensitive to the touch, but I've been back on the bike for 2 weeks. Oddly enough, riding didn't hurt as bad as work did for the first couple weeks, and I have an office-type job, although I do have to get up and sit down repeatedly. That's what kills.
Bending over is the worst, except for getting out of bed. Yeesh, talk about motive to sleep in.
Quick healing and better luck next time!
