I had to lie on a pick axe handle and lever it into my back to relax enough to breathe. You don't see that in the first aid books. The next morning I walked 10 yards doubled over in agony. After three days I could stand up straight and after ten days or so the worst of the symptoms had passed. I've never fully recovered and I expect it has shortened my life.
