I am so sorry to hear of your slow recovery and the pain. Cutting 2 ribs is just like breaking two ribs and deflating your lung ~ wow. I suspect your continuing, chronic pain is due to the physical trauma of the surgery.
Please do talk with your Dr. re your recovery. That sounds like a tough surgery for anyone. Please know we are here for you.
