I recently had to have a rib removed, it was growing though the thoracic regien and cut off the artery to my arm turning it blue. This rib had been there 32 years unnoticed, so they did ct scan of my chest and neck and found I have two ribs fused together on my right side and multiple vertbre down my spine. What causes bone fusion? I am in a lot of pain that seems to have nothing to do with the surgery I had April 4, 06, and it has gotten worse. I also have an extra bone in both feet.
