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?

Puffiness on left side of rib line

It seems like the left side of my chest area on the side where my ribs are right down the middle of my chest but on the side where my rib is is more distended than my right. It seems to happen more after i eat and its associated with gas or indigestion. There's no pain and it doesnt happen everytime. I just notice it. It goes away to where its not as noticeable but you can see the left side sticks out more than the right. Sometimes i can hear what sounds like my rib rubbing or adjusting.
