I got an elbow playing sport and played on and was fine , the next day i was in severe breathing pain and noticed a rock solid lump on the top right of my chest ribs , i taught it was a broken rib . Went to a and e and they x-rayed it and it showed nothing , i called back for a checkup the following week and another doc looked at the x-ray and said your fine , i asked what is the lump sticking out ,and he said it was a blood clot on the bone from severely bruised ribs , u are fine , 6 months later and my lump is still here and i went to my gp ,he sent me for x-ray again and told me im fine. I still keep getting breathing and chest pains and a lump sticking out of my chest which everyone can notice and this is after 9 months now , what will i do please help ?
thank you for your answer,i play alot of sport and when im pushing my fitness ,having to breath heavier ,the lump is causing breathing problems which is affecting me playing normally , i seem stuck for breath on my right side where th lump is , surely this isnt with me forever
I've had many of the same issues. Mine is literally the bone and has been sticking out for over 2 years now. I'm normally physically active and can no longer do things. I've had every test done and everything shows up fine, but I am in so much pain.
hey mate ive got the same thing. ive been told ive dislocated my rib and it will never go back in but we can strengthen it to get strong in the new area by swimming front crawl. but it will be painful. i did front crawl 3 days ago and ive had major pain since im hoping one day it will be normal and strong. i did mine playing tennis btw. Also please let me know how you our currently doing?
