Chest discomfort after bypass surgery
It is five months since I had by bypass surgery.  The chest incision gets tight and tender.  I do exercises to help reduce the problem, but I feel more pain/tenderness after the excercing.  What is a realist time frame to consider so my chest will feel normal and I would like to get on with my life.

Your chest wall may be tender for a year or longer postop. You are correct the exercising you do may increase the pain depending on the type of exercise you are doing.
