I went to the hospital yesterday since I was worried about the injury from the dirt jumping accident the other day. That is, since I was worried for by many people, fortunately.
So here is the verdict – bingo. There were slight fractures in the 6th and 7th ribs on the left. The doctor said it was like “how a willow branch can break when bent too much.” There is nothing majorly broken apart, and I should be fine in a few weeks. Regarding the suspected pneumothorax or hemothorax, there might have been some damage to the lung which caused the bleeding but there should be nothing to worry about since the blood has stopped, and there was no contraction of the lung judging from the x-ray.
In daily life, it would hurt to walk, lie in bed or get up from there at first. Over the last few days, however, things have turned so much towards the better.
So it seem like I’m getting back to normal life without much less stuff on my desk work list since I was taking it rather laid back due to the initial inconvenience. I don’t know if it’s good or bad, although I’m feeling good as if I’ve just paid the tax. Something has kept happening around August every year, but the toll was cheap this time around.
