Popping noise w/massage

Popping noise w/massage

Postby swebby » Mon Jan 09, 2006 2:42 pm

Some of you might remember a few weeks back when we were talking about that popping sound when we massaged our inicsion?

I found an article that explains it.. cool huh?

<snip>Another type of popping is that which occurs with a closed capsulotomy, a harsh sound signifying separation of the fibrous scar capsule. This is occasionally heard during forceful compression massage by the patient, and is of course transitory, not continuous, and requires strong pressure to elicit. <snip>

See, we weren't all crazy! \:D/

Hey LALA! I can answer that for ya! It's anywhere you have scar tissue built up. If you had lipo you will have scar tissue along those areas that were done as well as around your BB and where the drains were inserted will have some scar tissue.

I believe you when you say that massage helped your seroma. Makes perfect sense to me! I have been massaging since 3 weeks p/o and still do it every day myself and go to a massage therapist once a week. And you know from my pics that my swelling is minimal even when I am complaining about swell hell it's really not that bad and it goes away in a day or two!

Just in general massage anywhere on the tummy helps to move the fluid out, so only on those other areas where you have scar tissue will you need to pop it.

Did that help ya?

absolutely! thanks kay!

you know that knot just above my bb i was telling u guys about? i'm beginning to think maybe its scar tissue. i have been somewhat kinda trying to massage it but it feels weird plus as u know im afraid it may be a hernia. but the sensation feels like the bb. you'll understand that only if u can relate to a very sensitive bb pre op, im afraid. its a lump that feels the size of a half walnut shell. tell me what u think.

Hey landapanda.. I don't know about the bb thing.. have your PS seen it yet? If it is a hernia, I don't think you want to be massaging it.. did you have lipo? It could be a fat pocket that he missed, in that case you would want to massage it..

If it's tender in that one area, I'd be concerned.. better to run by your PS office and let him have a look..

Lala, I have to agree with Swebby! I'm not sure what a hernia would feel like so I can't help you there. If I was close to ya I would be able to feel it and tell ya if it was probably scar tissue or not but because your muscle repair was in that area I would be careful and get your PS to check it out. Just because you don't want to be popping MR scar tissue! So maybe a call in to him/her would be good just to see! At least ease any concerns you are having. And you I don't know if you will or not but you might have to tell him how it happened. LMBO!! Ok that was uncalled for here! Sorry! At least the laughing part! Did you see my post to you on the other board?

LMBO!!! kay! u know i don't want to have that conversation with HIM! lol! but i will :roll:

swebby i am 5 mos po and this just kinda popped up after some........physical exertion. :oops:
BUT it is VERY possible this is something that has always been there and i never noticed before bcuz i was so obcessed with the lower abdomen which was where my seroma was(my 4.5 mo long seroma :evil: ) and once it was gone i noticed something 'new' so to speak.

soooo neiither one of u guys feels anything in the bb area?

I took a trip to the grocery store and turned to the side and felt a "pop" but not on my incision. Didn't hurt but felt it to the right of my BB.

Did I pop a stitch? I wasn't lifiting or anything just walking and turned to the side
