Hello rhondac, and welcome to this forum. I am looking forward to getting to know you. Soon many other people will welcome you and hopefully you are made to feel at home. I know there have been a few people who have had pulmonary complications themselves, so they will be along shortly to help you out. Would you mind telling me what "broken rib syndrome" is? Last year (or should I say the year before now that it is 2011) I broke my rib through coughing too much. That was a painful 3 months for me, especially because I have asthma. When you have time try to pop into the chat feature so you can chat to people.
