MEDICAL! read 4 details. Friend fell off ladder has no ins so won't see DR.back hurts wen he coughs wat he shud watch 4
Happened around 1pm today ladder was 5ft tall he was on top rung, as he fell a larger ladder that was next to him hit him on the head. He lay on the ground in excruciating pain unable to get up for 10-15 min. He refused ambulance due to no health ins. As he was on ground he said he had trouble breathing, he can breath now, and from what I can tell he was hyperventilating from being scared. He had a cold & now when he coughs he gets sharp pain in lower right back to rght of spine. He put Ice but only for 10 min- he's stubborn. He was able to walk upstairs by 9pm but with alot of pain. Any bad signs he should be on the lookout that signal internal injuries? THIS IS WHY WE NEED OBAMA IN so people like this guy can get freakin medical care when they get hurt.
UPDATE- He went to Dr today cuz he was in more pain- excruciating pain- had Xrays- showed 3 broken ribs- ouch. He's resting comforably now thatnks to pain meds. Dr said he needed them or he could get pneumonia? I never heard of getting pneumonia from broken ribs- what's up with that- if anyone knows how that works let me know.
