sternum wire removal

Postby Izzispice » Sun Aug 11, 2013 3:00 pm

Hey everyone,

i had my wires removed on thursday evening by my wonderful surgeon. They had come to top of my skin and were causing me much discomfort doing everyday activities. I had 2 removed and am now on my 3rd day post removal.

Has anybody else had this done? how long did it take you to not feel sore? and when can i do normal things without worrying the scar will burst open again?
