Re: ribcage bone
well, i havent seen x-rays, nor do i know the extent of your wife's ribcage/spine
but scoliosis most definitly CAN cause ribs to stick out like that.
im no doctor, but im a nurse and i work in the trauma ward in my hospital, especially with spinal surgery patients.
but at 50 years old, it could also not help if osteoporosis is kicking in.. should get that checked too...
