last june 2010 i broke my rib by some idiot who decided to give me a bear hug from hell from behind. he broke my rib and now when it healed the left side of my rib cage seems like there a line of hardness that goes down the ribs i only noticed it when i was leaning against a plastic door at work but the right side is fine like normal. thanks.
if the rib is already fused, then nothing could be done.. only if there is problems like chest pain or difficulty in breathing then surgical correction is needed.. other wise do not worry much about it..
