I notice others here have had a floating rib issue. Mine will knock me into
severe muscle spasms if I push it and it constantly knocks my spine out of
place. I think its the rib 4th or 5th up from the bottom ribs. Doc says the rib is pulled away in the front and back and is only attached in the area under my arm. I have taken it easy for two years and it is still not healed. Doctor now says it may never heal. Anyone ever had surgury to re-attach ribs? Do they do this and what if anything (other than Celebrex) has helped you with this injury.
