However, tracheotomies done in emergency situations may be linked to future respiratory problems unless the emergency trach is revised soon after the initial trach.

Have lump of scar tissue size of marble at shoulder blade since shoulder injury 2 years ago. No pain to touch. Cause problem? Need to remove? How?

Have this checked: It is my advice that you have this lump checked out. It may very well be benign. However, cancer can develop on scar tissue and this can generally be cured if treated properly.

Can scar tissue from where I had mediport removed, cause chest pain? I stay with pain in my chest.

If this happens then you most likely will not have a period after the D&C and you may need surgery to separate the cavity. If you are seeing your period then scar is unlikely to affect your fertility. ...Read more

Does prolotherapy cause scar tissue or new tissue?

Does prolotherapy cause scar tissue or new tissue?

New tissue: Good question. The point of prolotherapy is to create new tissue within ligaments. When a ligament has been strained it's like a rubber band that's lost its spring ; no longer effectively holds our bones together. Prolotherapy stimulates regeneration of the ligaments- not scar tissue!
