I don't know if this sounds right but, I've recently had my implants explanted and, when I reach up I can feel a pull on my scar, under my right breast. On looking more closely it seems like my tendon?? is attached to the scar and is pulling. When looking in the mirror, I can see two long track lines(which look like tendons), becomming more apparent. They run from the scar all way down my stomach. And they are sore! What does this mean? are they tendons? I'm confused...
Feels Like Tendons are Attached to Surgery Scar, Is This Possible?

Breast Blood Clots - Mondor's Disease
Inflammation associated with Breast Surgery may lead to clotting of the superficial veins in the breast skin. This condition is temporary and resolves with antiinflammatory agents (such as Advil etc). You should discuss this with your surgeon and allow him to help you.
