Rib Fracture
I am 65 years old woman with osteoporiosis.. My first XRay 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.. What does it mean? Is my fracture healing or getting worst? Is there any treatment for rib fractures?
