Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
You will need to have a physical exam and imaging done such as a CT scan
What would be physical signs symptoms of a bruised spleen?
Pain mainly - and this is usually quite painful
If you struck this area, you should have this evaluated.
This is more of a tender, sore under lt. rib cage abdomen. Not severe . I don't have insurance and I am not at home. I am on vacation in Florida. so would like to avoid large insurance hospital visit. How do yo differentiate between rib injury and spleen?
Most likely this is a musculo skeletal problem - but the ONLY way you can diagnose this is with a physical exam and imaging - and since this was YESTERDAY, unlikely it is a ruptured spleen, you would have noticed it by now.
Again the only way to know is with imaging for rib vs spleen.
The majority of times it is a musculo-skeletal injury that heals on its own.
I hope this helps, if you have additional questions, please ask and Please click on ACCEPT, thank you as this would be appreciated.
OK, if it is a bruised spleen , not ruptured what would be the treatment
As long as it is not bleeding, no treatment is required.
Rest? I have aXXXXXback home. Should I postpone the trip. I am driving alone
You are probably okay to drive -
The tailbone pain is worse than the abd pain. hurts to sit.
That makes sense - but not much usually is done, even if a broken tail bone.
Don't think i can sit for 15 hrs. in the car. ice or heat, what can be done for this
Sit on a soft pillow - that is about your only choice (a donut pillow).
I hope you feel better, and please click on ACCEPT as this would be appreciated, thank you
