My left side is improving rapidly. I'm typing with both hands right now and I think I will be able to drive by Thursday (just one week after surgery). I think I will be ready to return to PT with Dr. Ando next week (I follow up with Dr. Angle on Monday).
I'm going to have the right 1st rib resected soon (in May I hope), then I will continue therapy with Dr. Ando to fix my remaining ribs.
this makes sense to me. i dont have much scalene problem either unless it's just general fatigue or fibro flare.
could you hear your rib subluxate ever
congratz, that is very encouraging
