Today, I told the doctor that one of my ribs sticks out farther than the other. When I lifted my shirt to show him, he immediately laughed and said, "Whoa, that's not subtle is it!" As if I wasn't already insecure about it. FML

At least he didn't say it looked like a puzzle piece

Don't take him seriously. He was just ribbing you.

Hah! Nice one.

Allusion is a wonderful thing.

If it makes you feel any better/not alone, I have a rib that goes inwards and causes a huge dent on one side

I have that too, it's very common with scoliosis patients.

Don't take him seriously. He was just ribbing you.

Huh I first thought that he meant that wasn't a subtle move.

Try to not let it get you down, OP. Everyone's body is different, you just gotta own it! Hope you feel better about it soon :)

Yea, you should dump him OP! You deserve better, I'm sure you look fantastic!

He might have not tickled your funny bone, but you sure tickled his. Don't sweat it. Even though you have a bone to pick with him, he didn't mean anything bad by it. Just doctor breaking the ice humor.

I've been told I have weird ribs too. Oh well, OP. Everyone has different bodies for a reason. :)

try going to a chiropractor instead. your rib is probably just thrown out of place and can be put back

I was just going to say the same thing.

You're joking right? You realize you go the a chiropractor for your back/joints of your body, right?

almost all of your ribs connect to your spine and a VERY misaligned spine can affect rib placement as well but most likely OP has ribs like me that just stick out too far in an odd way :\

He's just trying to make you feel at ease. Try not to take things so seriously.

It's actually more common than you think to have a rib flare on one side. Don't worry about it, embrace it.

Is that what it's called? I always called it my sticky-out rib. Now I'm going to look it up. Thank you.
