One of you mentioned that your surgeon for a total knee replacement (TKR) told you that your pain and discomfort after several weeks of post-surgery rehab were caused by scar tissue. Another member even had more scar tissue show up after a revision surgery to remove it. What is going on? This might help us understand.
How did I find out? About four weeks ago I had surgery to remove a tumor on my sternum. Everything has gone well. Then, all of a sudden I felt pain in the tissue on the inside of my shoulders. Yes, I did have surgery several years ago on both shoulders but I felt very good about how everything healed and let me live without pain. So…..what could it be?
At my MFR treatment session today, the therapist noticed how I was holding my shoulders and I told her about the new sensitivity. She put two and two together and explained how the tumor surgery had set off the pain response. When skin/tissue is cut and then put back together it creates a scar to make the incision stay closed.
The scar then pulls at the surrounding tissue to create a bigger scar. That is when you may have pain in areas farther away from the incision. MFR can put a stop to the pull on the tissue. So…I had step number one today and will return next week for step two.
This may be worth a try if you are still looking for a pain-free surgical area, including those knee replacement scars which seem to complain a lot about needing more tissue.
May you all be free of suffering and the causes of suffering.
Please let me know your questions and wonderments.
