Could Broken ribs as a child affect them
Can broken ribs as a child affect them later in life? My EX husband broke SEVEN of my daughter's ribs when she was eight months old. She's now fourteen years old. Up until yesterday, she's had zero issues. All of a sudden, she just started to hurt in her chest, ribs and back. The doctors can't figure it out, so I was wondering if her injuries as a child could have resurfaced.
