Just curious as to how you can tell its scar tissue and not gland?

cos it feels rock hard and has a bumpy shape.  this is very noticable when u raise yr hands up in the air, make it easier to feel for scar tissue

Massaging

What i do now is get a small towel and fold it  up so its about 6-7 inch square and soak it in very cold water, then press it on my pec were  the scar tissue lies!, i do this about 3-4 times to make sure the skin is realy cold and then i slap on some arnica cream and begin to massage softly and work up until your massaging quite firmly, i can grab the bead of scar tissue between my fingers and work it quite well, i hold my arm straight up and slide my fingers up and down the scar tissue and apply firm pressure, i even grab the bead of scar tissue and get my fingers behind it and massage it here to further break down the scar tissue, after 15 mins per side i get the same towel and soak it in hot water and then i apply this to my chest a couple of times to get the blood back to the skin.

I cool my skin down for a couple of reasons but the main reason is to numb the area and it allows for more comfortable massaging, then i apply a hot towel to bring blood back in to the area to flush away the toxins that have been released through massaging, use heat for about 2 mins a side, this should warm the skin up enough.

Give it ago let me know how you get on

I prefer to individualize the scar care for each of my patients.  You can find a collection of scar care information here.

Hope this helps,

i actually have performed the massasing techniques recommended here, however everytime i perform them, they start to swell and hurt slightly the next day...they are rather puffy this morning, i think that had i never even massaged them i would have had much better results, has anyone else experienced this?   if not, or if so, has anyone had the scar tissue completely dissolve, and if so, how long afterwards
