Scar tissue after Liver transplant

@bogietopar I am 15 months post liver transplant. I’ve had periodic issues with my scar- some lumpy parts and some discomfort/itching. In some lumpy parts - around my sternum, between my breasts, and more recently on my right side at the end of that scar. I’ve been instructed to with clean hands to do some gentle messaging. It does help de-knot things, break up the tissue, and make more comfortable but to be honest I hate doing it. I shower everyday and let soap bubbles swoosh around me without scrubbing. Make sure you keep the scar area clean and don’t scrub. That’s what my team tells me.

It’s interesting that this came up as today for work I was in a CPR training and as I leaned over my mannequin to do chest compressions, I felt a sharp pain that was scar related pain. I applied gentle pressure over my clothes, rubbing lightly and the pain dissipated.
