Any update on the Xrays?
Everything was normal. Jen has done several dives since then with no problems.

Wow, "I'm not a doctor, but I play one on the internet"... Internet diagnosis gone wild. Hopefully others won't use this thread as an example of how to respond to future diving incidents. "Living in the Panhandle" is a poor reason to avoid a doctor visit and an x-ray.

I haven't come across this thread before, but thanks for posting it, Diveaholic. Interesting reading...
I think, as medical professionals, we have the training and experience to be able to differentiate between an actual "get-to-the-ER-right-now" emergency, and something that has largely resolved and isn't life threatening. To someone without the medical experience that you or Jen has, I would suggest that person go to the ER for eval. However, if that incident had happened to me, I would have handled it in a very similar manner.
