Hi, has anyone had constochondritis, I had surgery 9 years ago and when I started doing things around the house or in work I got inflammation around ribs and chest, I was injected with cortisone, and it worked, In May & June I had revision surgery and it feels almost like the same thing, but it is in my back and side ribs. If anyone had it around back or side what did you do and how long did you have it, (I think it too big an ares to be injected) it goes away at rest, pain meds. do not help. I am going to arthritis Dr. in a few weeks. Thanks Lu
