Lingering pain in left rib cage
Back in November I fell down my apartment stairs and broke three ribs. It took two months for them to heal but ever since the incident I've been having moderate to severe pain. I went to see my family doctor and had some tests done on me including an x-ray. The doctor believes my ribs never actually fully healed. Is that a possibility for this lingering pain I've been having?

Yes. Rib fractures take time to heal. Get a Ct chest too.
