Signs of a Contracture but Doctors Say NO. Will Massage Really Reverse a Contracture?
Two weeks post op from mastopexy with implants my left breast began to get hard and painful. I went on antibiotics for 21 days. An ultrasound showed no hematoma. I am now two months post op and breast is swollen, harder, and I still have pain.. I have been told I do NOT have a contracture, though I had one previously in my right breast. Told that massage will solve the problem. When can a contracture be determined? Will massage solve the hardness? Can I develop a contracture 2-3weeks post op?
