After two months of ttc, I got pleurisy and actually coughed so much and so hard that I broke 1 rib and cracked 2 more. I was in pain for what seemed like forever. I kept saying I broke a rib but my doc insisted on putting me through every test known to man. My first x-ray didn’t show it but a couple months and a bone scan later revealed the problem. I was so mad that I broke something. Of all my years of being in sports, climbing trees, and just being a kid, I had never broke anything but a finger!
