Default Rib removal

Hi All ,
This is my 1st post . Iím a 54 yr old female , I had 69d scoliosis , and now I am
8 weeks post surgery , and recovery fantastically , on hindsight I shouldíve
done it years ago! I had posterior approach , I also had lateral approach, so i needed my lung deflated, and also a rib removed ( which was used for disc fusion ) Iím looking for advice from anyone who has had similar, as the swelling around rib and tummy area is quite severe, and unsightly. Iíve had an ultrasound and apparently it just trauma and inflammation. However by the end of the day , itís hard and very tight . Loving my new straight back and extra inches , but hating my very sore swollen tummy . Any advice would be welcome .
