I broke four ribs in a motor vehical accident back in august 9 thru 12 with# 10 with two fractures.Everything I have read so far tells me I should have healed by now.My dr.had xrays taken last week to check any progress and it still showed 5 displaced fractures.I have not been able to sleep in a bed thru the night in a bed without the pain waking me up so I sleep in a reecliner most of the time.Also due to the physical nature of my job I have not been able to return to work.My doctor tells me it needs more time,tomorrow marks 12 weeks my question is how much more ttime before I pursue another alternative.thank you
