Our expert says:
bruised ribs can be super painful, and do take quite long to heal. One step up would be broken ribs, but either way, there's not much you can do but ride it out. Two weeks is a long time, so that's pretty bad bruising, or a broken rib. The only way to confirm this is an x-ray, which you may wish to have just to reassure yourself.
