Pain in the lower rib cage after a head injury. Had bruise and memory loss. Any suggestions?
I had a bicycle accident 9 days ago. Had head injury and spent three days under neurological care as I lost my memory for 12 hours. Now out of hospital. Abraisions and cuts mainly healed. But I have developed a sharp pain at times in my right side lower rib cage. There was a bruise there previously. Any suggestions as to cause and what I should do.
Welcome to HCM,
It is more likely that there might be having fracture in one of the rib, unnoticed as you head injury.
Consult orthopedic surgeon and get x-ray chest done and afterwards go for the treatment accordingly.
Ok and bye.
