I am 68 yrs. Old. My heart CABG (open heart surgery) was done 1 yr. 5 months back in January 2015. Still there is pain in chest wall /bones/ribs in the areas of stitches. There is inflammatory formation in 2 inches stitches. Sternum creates problem in my movement. Consulted my surgeon every 2 months. He is not giving any importance in my problem. Lastly 3 months back he referred to physiotherapist and I continuously followed his advice. But, there is no improvement of my problem. I know this problem is not of my heart. Can you suggest me any solution of my problem. I will remain grateful to you.

After open heart surgery,it does happen that pain in operated area takes place at times even after prolong period. Go for homoeopathic treatment, it may help you,along with physiotherapy .
