Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

You need to seek medical advice about potentially cracked or broken ribs. Since you have osteoporosis you may not heal as well as you should. Bruised ribs can be very painful and you may just have bruising but with weakened bones, you need medical care.
Best,
Susan
