    Good morning, I am so sorry that you are still feeling pain. Have you talked to your cardiologist about this? I have had a few too many surgeries and have access to a great neuromuscular massage therapist to help keep the scar tissue around the incisions from causing pain and drawing up muscles. 

    My thought is to check with your cardiologist and ask for solutions to the discomfort, including massage or gentle stretching to help your muscles from tighten up and assist in overall strength. 

    Thanks Katie
