No way! I think I broke my sternum too. I was playing ultimate frisbee and some dude, (probably a girl) elbowed me. That was like 2 months ago and it still hurts when anyone bumps me there.
"A bruised sternum can take about 4-6 weeks to heal if the bruising is not severe. It may be difficult to breathe deeply, twist the upper torso, and may be sensitive to touch. It is common for people with bruised sternums to begin breathing in short shallow breaths to reduce pain. It is important, however, to try and breathe normally as shallow breathing could cause infection and hinder the healing process. If the injury is more severe, limiting movement or swelling see a physician as it may be something more dangerous."
woah. wish you had not said that. i feel like i am going to die if i breath too deep.
