  • Hmmmm what exactly was the point of the rib removal? By my understanding the recovery time for a full recovery of a removed rib is usually 2-3 months but varies upon that of the individual. You may want to ask the surgeon that removed it though.

  • thank for replying the removal was because it was pressuring my brachial plexus. i couldnt raise my arm and stuff. even touching the actual scar make me feel like an electrical feeling threw my back of my tricep and that line threw my chest.

  • Ya I would definately contact the surgeon who removed the rib and ask him about it as you could still be healing. If he doesn't believe that is the case maybe he can point you in the right direction.
