Partner had accident 2yrs ago, fractured t9  ribs and "small" lung puncture. No surgery.  Ongoing minor cough all seasons ever since. Any correlation?

Probably not: An isolated rib fracture and small pneumothorax should leave no lasting effects.

Follow up with your primary physician or get seen by a pulmonologist for a more complete examination and testing. ...Read more
