The surgeon did not really seem concerned about my complaints. Said to come back in 2 months. There is a staple starting to come out of the sternum, which is painful, but he joked that I was too skinny. So I called back and they will order X-ras or CT scans. I hope it can be fixed easily. I have the blues but someone from hospice is helping me. (Added to ICU, my husband died 3 weeks ago.) So it has been a horrible year.
