I broke a rib on my left back side from vomiting while I was 35 weeks pregnant & then gave birth to my daughter a week early at 39 weeks. It has been two years since I had my baby, however I am still in consistent pain on BOTH sides - mainly the left of course. I find it hard to sleep or sit comfortably, and stretching or taking really deep breaths can cause me in collapse in pain at times.
While pregnant, I read that the uterus can push the rib cage out by up to 5 cms. I am wondering if my rib partially healed while expanded from its original place and that is why I am still experiencing so much pain? I have noticed the pain getting more severe the thinner I am getting from losing the baby weight I put on in my pregnancy.
Any information or advice you could give me would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you so much for your time.
Kind Regards, Haylie
