three weeks ago i went to jump into side control but let go of the guys leg too sone and he posted it up while i was pasing his guard. With his foot planted on the ground i came down hard with the side of my rib cage on his knee. (I usualy stop myslef with my hand on the far side of my oponents body i dont actualy drop all my weight on them full speed I am not that mean : P) Anyhow for the first few days I could not even lay i bed on that side. since then they normaly dont bother me but when I do any exercise that works the muscles around that area like SL DL it hurts like hell for a few hours if touched. It hasnt bothered me too much rolling since the past 2 weeks i have been preparing for exams and only rolled 2x. but when i do start back this is going to be a major problem agaisnt larger opponents in side control. How long should this take to get better? there was no visable bruise when it first happened. as long as i dont let anyone get side control on that side or sneaze it will not bother me but it is getting anoying.
