WHAT IS THE BEST THING TO DO FOR A FRACTURED OR BROKEN RIB?
WHEN I MOVE I HURT REAL BAD IN MY LEFT SIDE.
HOW LONG DOES IT USSUALLY TAKE TO HEAL?

  1. I fractured a rib on my left side about 6-8 weeks ago (from coughing) it was the 10th or 11th rib), it still is sort of sore on my side and hard to get comfortable when sleeping. In the center of my chest in the front is where the most pain is. It feels bruised. How long should the pain in my chest last? Should I go back to my doctor. I have a one year old so I’m sure having to carry has made the healing process longer.
