Is airline travel possible with broken/fractured ribs?
How many ribs are fractured and when?

Have you discussed this with your doctor?

Is there any pneumothorax i.e air out side lung?

Customer: replied 8 years ago.

There are 2 ribs fractured/broken. As far as I know, he has no pneumothorax. He was told to do deep breathing as often as possible so phenmonia doesn't set in.

Thank you
