Doc, I have a harrison groove (sulcus) . Can I fix my harrison groove (sulcus) with a surgery? If it can,Can my chest back to normal after surgery? Thx doc.

One's primary care doctor can examine to see what the patient is talking about, and can use modern terms to describe the findings. The chestwall or ribcage is not perfectly symmetric, and most minor asymmetries are called normal. ...Read more

14 months post bypass op, have been diagnosed with non-cardiac chest pain. Pain level on a normal day is the same as two weeks after surgery, why ?
Happens: I've see this before: some people have very troublesome chest wall pain after CABG surgery related to scar formation and adhesions. I've found that physical therapists who are skilled with scar manipulation and stretching can provide significant relief. Some people have relief with Lyrica (pregabalin) or neurontin.

Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
