Dear customer
Welcome to and thank you for your question.
I'm so sorry to hear of your discomfort after the fall. I will do whatever I can to help answer your questions .First I need a little more information-
Does your pain worsens when you take a deep breath?
Does the pain increases when you press the injured area?
I am waiting for your reply..
Kind Regards,
Dr. Robert
