Rib pain three weeks after breast reduction?

I had a mammoplasty/ breast reduction done almost three weeks ago and have healed amazingly since then, with very little pain. However, over the last few days I noticed my ribs were hurting and I can't figure out why. I haven't done anything that would have made it start, but it randomly started after virtually no pain. It feels like I cracked a rib or something and it bruised.

Any ideas on why? My incisions are healed, I haven't had pain meds since a few days after surgery, was back to work 4 days after, and all that. I feel I was lucky, but I want to know why this is suddenly going on.

    This might have nothing to do with the surgery i suggest you call your doctor or go to an ER.
