Hi, Jeanne! Ouch.!
Yeah--let it stop hurting before you resume breakfall practice on that side!
I agree w/ the suggestion about practicing what is different between the two sides. Yknow the solo practice where you lie on your back and , leading with hip, go up and to one side to land in breakfall position, then inhale, and on exhale, lead w/ other hip to go up and to other side to land in breakfall position? This is a good way to check it from low altitude/low impact. And if you get warmed up you can get some altitude by really raising your hips to make the turn in the air.
