Hello Kim,

I am sorry you are still having pain following a bout of pleurisy. It has been some time and it would seem that this should be cleared by now. As you may have been told it may take up to a year post pleurisy before you return to "normal." Have you returned to the diagnosing physician recently" If not I encourage you to do so.

Your rib pain may be unrelated at this point to your June diagnosis but it certainly requires some investigation. A Lung VQ or CT scan may be helpful in detecting or ruling out any disease or condition in your lungs. You can than move on the other possibilities or causes of this rib pain.

Best of luck to you. Please let us know how you are doing. We will watch for future updates. Take Care, Tuck
