You know how your top rib is attached to some cartilage ? I had such a bad cough from bronchitis that my top rib detached from that cartilage. This was about 14 or 15 years ago and Ivan still feel the pain when I think of it!!!

Yes. She might be more vulnerable if she is at risk for osteoporosis. Take her to the doctor to be safe. Make her comfortable.
