Fractured ribs
I have been experiencing back pain in my upper left back. It's sometimes a burning pain. i have gone through many adjustments to no avail. My doctor had exrays done and to my horror I have a fracture in my 5th and 6th rib. To make a long story short, 10 years ago I underwent lung surgery due to a spot on my lung. I was told 3 of my ribs would be broke, two of which were my 5th and 6th rib. The xray shows my 5th rib was shaved or shortened and never fused back together. My 6th rib looks like it is broken and doesn't even line up. I'm curious why it would take 10 years to start causing me problems. Could it be possible the 6th rib never healed and just recently separated and that is causing all my problems? In your opinion can surgery be done to fix this.
