The bone that protects the heart....could not breath well for 2 months, $3,000 in medical bills (chest xrays, drugs, etc) and very painful to sleep. There is nothing that can be done for a cracked sternum.

I never carry cell or gps in my front pockets anymore.

Mind if I inquire your age, and what type of cellphone this was. Just a unique method of injury, not saying it could not happen but it is definitely odd. Even with chest compressions rib fractures tend to happen before a sternal issue occurs.
