i am a 17 year old male with pectus excavatum

hey, i am a 17 year old male with pectus excavatum. I know the procedure and am going to get it. But that is not the reason i am typing this message. i also would like to know about a rib disorder i have which i think[but not sure] is part of my floating ribs. on my left side i have a deformed rib or ribs that pop out noticeably. i have no idea what it is but along with my chest greatly affect me psychologically. is there any way i have this rib "filed" down so to speak or just molded to look the right way?

have you heard of 3MP? Makes all other procedures look like work for a butcher, not a doctor. Check up 3MP (got to do with maginets)
