Suggest remedy for pain in ribs

I fell and broke a rib on my lower left side, in the back. The fall was a week and a half ago and I feel pain from under my ribs on upper left, all the way down near my pelvis. It also feels almost as if there is a bubble on that side as well. Is this normal?

Hello,

The symptoms seem to be related to the injury.

I suggest using anti-inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen to relieve the symptoms.

I also recommend using cold compresses for local application.

The symptoms need three to four weeks for recuperation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
