Bit of an odd one, I'm healing quite nicely and I'm 4 months post surgery now but this morning I woke up and there's a patch of skin just below the breast plate that is very sensitive to the touch. It's a few inches away from any scars and is localised to a very tiny area. When I prod it it feels very raw and I'm a bit concerned that I may have damaged my wrap. I had a night out on Saturday and I did quite a bit of dancing but apart from that I've not really done anything that active. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm still reflux free but I'm a little worried. sad

I would think that maybe it is where a stitch finally dissolved or just the dancing tugged alittle too much on a muscle that's not quite healed all the way. I doubt if dancing would blow your wrap. I had dry heaves for over 2 hours a couple months after my redo and didn't pop the wrap.

take care,
Bill

Thanks Bill. That's made me feel a lot better :) I've finally got my first check up with the surgeon next month (5 months later!!) so I'll be sure to mention this when I see him.
