Rib Fracture
I am 65 years old woman with osteoporiosis.. My first XRay of chest showed fracture of left 8th rib is seen.. After 5 months I repeated the xRay.. Second XRay says Old fracture with partial union is seen in lateral end of 7th and 8th ribs.. Since last one month my ribs pain also.. Especially left side.. What does it mean? Is my fracture healing or getting worst? Is there any treatment for rib fractures?
