Issues with ribs and cartilage after radiation: What can I do?
I finished radiation last August after a lumpectomy. Everything was fine for a couple months. In late December I fractured a rib coughing. A month ago I started having very sharp pains in my ribs. Doctors tell me its cartilage and there is nothing I can do, except time. Its almost like the cartilage is tearing or pulling away from the bone. Has anyone else had something like this?
