View Full Version : Is this pain normal?

I had my correction Sept 20th and my ribs are still so sore on the opposite side that I had the anterior correction on. If I take a deep breath in...it hurts, if I do to much in a day it hurts and feels like broken ribs. Anyone else experience this. It is much better than just after the surgery but still after all this time I thought it should be better.

My rib pain lasted a long time-many months. There are nerves which pass by each rib and they get shifted with the correction. Ice bags helped me.

I had that same problem. I'm now around 7 months post op and i did get rib pain on the opposite side if where they did take one from, you feel like its all getting better then you get pain where you wouldn't think of. I will tell you though it really does get better im pretty much feeling back to normal im full time at work and i never regret having this surgery.

Hang in there !! :)
