I know, I was just referring the the latest season of TUF.... didn't work out
Anyway, so you didn't fracture anything? I've trained with small fractures on several ribs without knowing it before. But it wasn't anything severe and I probably wouldn't do it again if I knew that it was fractured.
I found it out when I did a blood test for a completely different illness. The doctor said that for any athlete, trained or untrained person to wrestle, grapple and box when having fractures was just plain stupid and could jeopardize an entire career.
I'm not a doctor so i can't tell you exactly what's wrong with you but do what the doc says. If he's a legitimate and experienced doctor he should know more about YOUR body than you do.
