Power boating accident


One week and a half ago I went out power boating with a few friends, I was at the helm. It got a little rough out there and I didn't slow down, so we flew up a 10 foot swell and quickly came crashing down, that's when it all started. Since then it's hard for me to sit certain ways and very painful getting up after sitting for a short while. I don't think it's getting any better, I never had something like this happen before and I don't know what to expect. I have not made any doctors appointments and I'm wondering if I should. I don't think my pain is as bad as some of the posts I read, but it still hurts a lot.

I'm wondering if anyone can give me some advice. The only time it hurts is when I'm sitting on hard surfaces and when I get up after sitting for a short or long period of time, the longer the more it hurts. I hope it's just bruised and maybe takes awhile to heal like bruised ribs. I would appreciate any suggestions you may have.
