Title: Bone spur healing / scar tissue
Post by: kevin on September 05, 2002, 09:14:36 PM
Hello. 20 days ago, I had a bone spur removed from my knee. It was on my femur and it was about the size of my little finger.  My question is about the scar tissue/incision scar.  Is it correct to massage the scar/scar tissue? I'm worried that when I do this, I'm aggrevating the area where the bone spur was removed and it will grow back.  Should I leave the scar tissue alone?  It feels very bruised, and I don't know if the massaging is what is causing this feeling.  Also, do bone spurs always grow back or how can you prevent them from growing back.  Thanks!!
