Rib removal is surgery to remove one or more ribs. Rib resection is the removal of part of a rib. The procedures are done for various medical reasons. A number of celebrities have been falsely rumoured to have had ribs removed as a form of body modification.
Broken Ribs Recovery Time. Cracked ribs are considered a minor injury but are not an easy fix. Broken ribs recovery is slow. It takes a good 6 to 8 weeks for fractured or broken ribs to heal. During this time it is imperative to observe for and treat any complications that could turn into emergency situations.
Thoracic outlet syndrome is a group of disorders that occur when blood vessels or nerves in the space between your collarbone and your first rib (thoracic outlet) are compressed. This can cause pain in your shoulders and neck and numbness in your fingers.
While healing time for bruised ribs typically ranges anywhere between 5 to 6 weeks, rib fractures might take longer to heal. The time one would take to recover would also vary, depending on the overall health of the patient. It might range from 6 weeks to 6 months.

I just snapped one day, ordered some ribs, and went to town on them like some rabid fucking wolf. Chewing the sinew off the bone is the best part, and fuck it, they're delicious. Specifically that kind of meat. It's what I crave. No one knows my little secret. I feel guilty, naughty, and satisfied. I might come out of the kolbi rib closet soon.
