I have a 15cm wound across my chest after excising 2 keloid and a cyst. On 3Rd week after the surgery, I am experiencing wound opening sensation and pain, when I swallow or breath hard. I checked the wound under the pico dressing. The surface of the wound is clean and intact. Why and what caused the sensation. Is it serious?

Hi PatriciaP. It does not sound like anything dangerous is happening. I suggest you see your plastic surgeon and discuss your symptoms with him or her. Good luck
