Fractured ribs/swollen abdomen

I fractured some ribs one month ago while coughing violently, not healed yet but definitely healing slowly. Shortly after this happened, I noticed that my abdomen & stomach seemed to be swollen (not painful) and it seems to be getting more swollen as the days go by (only very stretchy pants can be worn now). I've just started a new job and will not have health insurance for 6 more weeks, so am trying to avoid seeing a doctor until then. Has this ever happened to anyone else? I feel fine except for the way I'm swelling up and running out of things to wear to work plus still some tender sensations at the site of the rib fractures (left side). Thank you.
