Anyone that has injured their ribs

Jan 13, 2015 4:08 PM

During my scoliosis operation 5 of my ribs were taken out to help fuse the spine. The left side is where I think they were taken out.
I know that they do grow back but I've had so much pain the last couple of days and it feels like I can't breathe properly..it hurts to breathe, has anyone had a similar experience. This pain is unbearable, and I don't know what I've done to cause it.

I've not had the surgery BUT the Pain I do due to fractures suffered, I was prescribed Montelukast it helps with tightness and breathing. Hope this helps you.
