Unfortunately months! Did it a few years ago and it was so sore. And even made it hard to breath sometimes. Anyway you should be able to do light exercise just not any stretching or weights. But walking should be ok?????

Socantwait I had bruised ribs a few years ago and it was PAINFUL! It was just before I did my leaving so I was booted out the door every morning my the mother she was having none of my moaning but seriously it was really sore, painful to breath and sneezing was a bloody nightmare :o0 Can't remember how long exactly it took to heal but I think it was prob in around 4/5 weeks before I was completely back to normal. I'd say madhatter is right walking is prob the best/easiest thing to do. BTW... just wondering how you bruised them in the first place >:o)

months :eek shait! Must get into the walking so. What could you do?? All the radiologist said was that there was no fracture, just bruising but Im wondering where I could go to check if there is muscle tearing or anything like that. Its starting to ease but did some walking today and its tender now so frustrating!!
