Re: Broken Xiphoid Process(pt2)

I noticed mine about 6 months ago. I know for a fast I never had this before..It is huge and protrudes to the point it looks bad. Not sure what happened. Had x-rays, CT scans etc. They are only telling me that the xiphoid is sticking out instead of down. It is beginning to get more uncomfortable as weeks go by, but doctors don't care. They only ask, does it hurt badly? no? then we will just "monitor"??

Im growing more concerned as days go by and now I am changing physicians. Now, when I laugh really hard, it hurts too. looks like im struggle to smuggle a golf ball in my chest.
