    I can relate. I fell 3 weeks ago, missed a step and landed on my left side on my water bottle. I don't know how long it took me to get up, but it was a while. Ribs are still sore, could barely get out of bed today. Every day is different, some days are better than others.

    Take it easy and take care of yourself. Sending you tons of healing vibes and love.

    Oouch! I hope you make sure nothing is damaged. I hate it when I have to replace tools....

    Actually, I now know what the old ad, "Help me. I've fallen and can't get up!" meant. I'm close to a wheelchair and don't want to participate in the back surgery that has been offered. :(

    Get yourself checked out.

    Oh JR that is nasty, just lucky you didn't break any bones.

    An hour is a long time. Are you still in PT? Don't know your specifics but maybe using a cane for a while as added insurance might be a good idea. Wishing you continued healing, hand in there and keep working on it.:thumb:

    At least you didn't break a hop while you were at it. The joys of aging are not for the faint hearted

    I understand that the newer Life Alert pendants have shock and position sensors and will call for help without having to hit the button. Miz Diane's mother could never remember to use hers (and fell a lot). She would wait for Diane to get off of work and then hint that we needed to come over and take her to the hospital.

    Men are often worse than women in these situations. Older generations were conditioned to be "self reliant" or "you're not hurt if you're not bleeding". I certainly was and am. It is very hard to relinquish that mind-set. Getting someone to use a walker is astoundingly hard to do. Loss of independence is one of the hardest hits. I think I'll be good...but I fear when my time comes, I'll be the same.

    Best wishes, I hope you recover.

    I’ve had some pretty bad falls in the last year as well. I had a transfemoral amputation last year and I don’t think I’ll ever get used to having just one leg.
    Falls really are dangerous, make sure you get yourself checked out so there isn’t any hidden damage.
