Thanks for the info. I do think certain bras may bother mine. I do have stitches inside, and wires in my sternum.

my scar is about three inches and three years old now up near my collar bone but lacy bras , scented soaps, certain bra straps can irritate it. so happy you got it checked, i am sure you have more stitches underneath i have none, Hugs

Thanks! I went to the cardiologist's office yesterday. While there, I asked about it. First, the nurse said it looks good; second, she said it can be painful for quite awhile. This isn't my first incision. I've had more than my share of surgeries, but wasn't too sure about one straight down the chest. Thankfully, it's not a big one (about 4").

hi perrybabe I never had open heart surgery but I did have a pacemaker incision , I know the sun really irritates it and I have to be careful with certain bras no lace etc.No funny soaps , maybe a call to your heart doctor nurses will get you some answers or google it,

Hi! Since this is a team about heart health, I have a question for anyone who's had open-heart surgery. How long did your incision annoy you? Did it come and go? What kind of things might irritate it?
