Default Fractured rib

I think I fractured a rib in sparring last monday, went to the doctors and had an xray and everything but the results dont come out for another day or 2.

Basically its a few ribs down from the collarbone, it hurts to sneeze, cough, blow my nose and when I breath heavy it sometimes makes a sort of clicking sound (which feels really nasty), im thinking the clicking noise is the cartilage out of place or something....

Anyway the area is swollen and real hard like bone, ibuprofen helps the pain but I read that anti inflammatories might delay the healing process?

Also anyone else had a rib fracture and how long did it take for you to get back into training, I went for a light run the other day and I felt ok at first but then the pain meant I had to run real slow.
