Response to In furtherance...


Pancreas...very painful.

Insertions of the diaphragm at the ribs...impact induces myospasm, leading to "wind knocked out" effect (sealing the breath).

Junction between the transverse and descending colon...impact causes soft muscle spasm, leading to "gut cramp" feeling...pretty quick drop.

Spleen...main repository for blood and really big lymphois organ. Easily corrupted by impact, leading to interstitial distention (swelling)...pain; chronic issues from smaller bleeds; death or organ removal surgery for larger bleeds.

Distal ends of the unattached ribs, where they insert to the cartilagious "cups" of the costal cartilage...knock one free of that, leads to loss of wind, pain with straightening the torso or rotation at the waist; upper body exertion (like throewing a follow-up punch).


PS -- trying to paste a picture of the digestive and respiratory and neuromusculoskeletal systems anatomical targets underlying this quadrant, but can't get it to paste. If I figger it out...
