Is anyone familiar with Costochondritis?


I was diagnosed with it by a GI doctor years ago and my primary care physician agrees with that diagnosis. However, most of my research has showed that it apparently normally clears up on its own yet mine has had no change for years. I never had the pain prior to my gall-bladder surgery 4 years ago and only earlier this year found out via x-ray that I have a staple there that was put there on purpose (yet was never told about it). Couldn't it actually be the staple causing the pain?
