Last Friday I took a spill about a half mile from my house. There was some water flowing across the road --- maybe 20 feet before a hairpin turn. I thought that I would be OK because the pavement was dry at the turn. Well, the pavement was dry but my tires were still wet! This being California, it hasn't rained for a couple of months, so there was a surface coating of oil on the pavement. Anyway, as soon as I started to make the turn my wheels slid right out from under me!
I ended up with a bit of road rash on my elbow, my knee, and my hip which wasn't too bad. However, I landed with a big thud and l got my ribs pretty good. My ribs have been hurting pretty good since then.
So how long should I expect it to take before the ribs heal?
