Re: Feel down that there is nothing that can be done about rib hump :-(
I have quite a significant rib hump as well- very similar to yours if not worse. I have never had surgery as I don't experience severe pain and was told that if I was to go through with the surgery that there was a chance that a.) they may not be able to reduce my rib hump and b.) I may experience chronic pain afterwards- I was about 12 at the time and this terrified me and my family and ultimately we decided against it. I am 26 now and getting married this summer so I really do understand the frustration of clothing fit and comfort overall. I feel now though that I wish I had gone through the surgery when I was 12 or so as I looked into it seriously last year once again, but since I plan to have children quite soon I was told that it would have to be one or the other.
