Hi there my friends.
I have a question fir you. 14 months post opp.
When I turn in bed or if I am on the sofa or floor, especially on my left side. I find my sternum feels like it gets stuck and doesn't want to follow the way my top half wants to go.
It can be quite painful & uncomfortable when this happens. It almost feels like if I had an xray it would show the sternum as being crocked inside the chest wall.
Like when you put a cushion back into a clean cushion cover and you have to pat it against your legs to make sure it falls into the correct place otherwise it looks & feels an odd shape.
Also it feels like the dent that is going all the way down my sternum is deeper the last few months. The wire feels like it is going to puncher something internally.
And it almost feels like they have accidently sewn my skin of the chest wall to my heart too. It is lije a tugging kind of pain. As if when I move slightly wrong, it will rip away from something in the heart area.
My question is, is this normal? 😕
If so, then I will just get on with it, butbin the knowledge that everything is A okay.
If it isn't normal however, I wont feel silly asking my Gp about it & sounding like a hypercondract.
Many thanks in advance, Jo 😊
