Fix my new shower curtain,there was a few holes that i previously missed so when I went o the shower to amend
The whole shower pole & shower curtains, came down upon me,& I lost my balance & hit my right side side of my upper right ribs struck the sink quick hard,this happened Sunday afternoon,I just adjusted myself out of the shower curtain,& tried to out it back up,after three attempts to fix everything back to normal,my rids starting hurting me quite Badly, took some aspirin,& tried to lay down for a wee bit of rest,but to no avail,I have had about two to 3hrs sleep since this accident,should I make an appointment to see my Dr,I know U can"t really do anything about bruised ribs,except take some more aspirins for it & I do believe it will go down in a few days,I checked my ribs & there is some bruising & a little swelling of them,thank U so for your time & patience in reading about my medical problem.
