I broke rib 10 on the right side, and was given steroids for inflammation. Immediately my abdomen swelled a lot and is a little better a week later but still really bloated. Is this from steroids or the break in the rib? The break is clearly healing and im almost pain free now.

I was hit by a truck, as a pedestrian and broke three ribs and got a compression fracture of a vertebrae and ruptured discs. I also was thrown 15 feet and landed on my right side. I had severe bruising on my right thigh and horrific pain. I was in the hospital 3 days and took a plane back to my home. I was treated for increasing back pain and after 18 months ended up in the ER with massive pulmonary embolisms in both lungs with no pain in my legs or any evidence of clots anywhere else. My question is, would it be possible to have a blood clot from the accident and not have it move to my lungs until 18 months later?

I have a sharp pain in the right side just below the ribs for about 10 days; it went away, but now its back with a vengeance. I try to walk it off but that makes it worse. I just cant seem to get comfortable, does not matter if I stand sit or lay down.
