I am due back for check in three days. There was no surgery done on any of the fractures.
Any insight? Any chance of first rib being problem. (but no pain involved)
You really had a big accident? How did this happen? Were you in a car accident? The lump is most likely the swelling or the accumulation of the blood that come from burst blood vessels underneath your skin. I am not sure if the doctors are able to remove the lump that you have but you might try to get the lump smaller with warm compresses. Are you using any pain killers for the pain? What did your doctors tell you how long will your recovery last? Sharp pain will be noticeable for long period of time. I hope that this helped you in any way.
