I was participating in a practice fencing bout and my opponent hit me very hard on the right side of my chest. It left a bruise, and now a few days later the bruise is gone but the area is still very painful. It hurts when I touch the area and it will randomly start hurting. Nothing is out of place and there is not obvious fracture. My question is should I get it looked at? Could the rib be broken or is it more likely bruised?

The foil likely gave you AIDS. Things will only get worse from here on out; I'm sorry.

You have the menopause.  Sorry that it's started so early OP.






















Seriously, it's probably deep tissue bruising.  Take some motrin and force hydrate. That'll fix anything.

Gently, place your nipple between your thumb and trigger finger.
Next, start rolling your nipple between the above finger tips.


Then, increase the speed of the rolling action, and start tugging on your nipple at the same time.


Once your nipple is nice and hard, now attach an alligator clip to it.


Finally, rip the alligator clip off of your nipple as hard as you can.

No point in getting an xray, if it's broken, it's broken. There's nothing to do for it except suck it up.

Take Tylenol for pain, try to avoid getting hit there for the next couple of weeks.

Epee, saber, or renaissance rapier?

It was a foil. We both lunged at the same time, and the rubber tip of his foil had fallen off.

Acute Saberitis.  May require an Epee-ectomy.  Or possibly a Foil-otomy.

If you are highly motivated, an xray can rule out a fractured rib, but even then, they'll tell you to take it easy until it heals.

Professional answer?  It's never wrong to have an actual doc take a look.


Edit: You gonna be at Summer Nationals in Dallas in July?

No. I have been fencing for less than a year, and I have not been able to compete yet. It is my school's club, but we are not NCAA rated yet because the program is less than a year old.

I would also suggest a pregnancy test.

And nobody stopped the bout, or were you just fucking around on your own?

This was practice and the bout ended after that. I did not notice any bruising or pain until the next day. Neither of us noticed the damaged tip until after the hit.

Since our program is so new we are using practice weapons instead of competition weapons since they are cheaper and we do not have to pay for all of the electronics.

Stop touching it.

Bi Plubis of the blow hole. It is most always fatal, especially w/o a man card.
