Aching Wrist


I am now 2 weeks and 4 days post op, the stitches are out and I am regularly massaging the scar with emollient to soften the skin. The scar site still feels hard and heavy with reduced sensation in it although it is difficult to hold anything that needs to rest against the area, such as an iron or knitting needles.

I have also noticed that my wrist and arm are aching from time to time with the ache coming from the scar site and there is a hard raised lump under the skin at one point along the scar.

Is this a common experience post op?

Many thanks



Not that uncommon I'm afraid. Fortunately most symptoms like this will improve given time though there is no absolute guarantee. JB
