Bone become harder after surgery
I got Pectus Excavatum surgery 6 months ago. But since then, my rib bones have become very hard that makes my breathing difficult. I'm really worried if this continues. Anyone knows about this surgery can tell me whether this situation will end in the future, and if so, how long? Thank you so much!

Hello!

If you were given a support bar during surgery then you will have some amount of discomfort and remember the pes excavatum support bar is removed by a surgery after 2-3 years.

Risks associated with this surgery are same with any other surgery e.g. infections. Specific pectus excavatum surgery risks may include lung collapse (pneumothorax) and the recurrence of the funnel chest. Bar displacement may occasionally require repositioning. I would suggest you to start deep breathing exercises and physical activity and follow up with your surgeon.

Take care!
