Broken ribs still feeling pain. Do I need medical help?

How long. How long has it been? Rib fracture pain can be seen for months after injury. I tell my patients that with or without rib surgery, they can expect pain from the ribs for around 3 months. If the pain lasts longer than that, you might want to be evaluated - there may be injury from the fracture to the intercostal nerve below the rib, and these can be painful and permanent.
