I don't know how much of a hit my fitness has taken, I do hope it's not "substantial".

Life goes on!
Some info on broken rib recovery time here:

Perhaps a seated leg press would keep your legs strong with no upper body flexing

When do leg presses I position myself so that my knee lines up with an imaginary pedal spindles under my feet together with my Q distance.

Get well soon.
