Sternum massage

Recommended Posts

I had my first post-op appointment today and the nurse pointed out the fluid in my chest/sternum area.

She showed me a massage to do, where I push down hard and massage the fluid down. This hurts like crazy!

Is there anything else I can do to help the fluid disperse?

How bizarre harlow! My ps said to drink plenty of water to help flush it all out and to just give it time and leave it be. Vitamin c in high doses also helps to clear it up. My surgeon has me on 2000mg a day.
