I don't know about the glue, but I got wired shut (4 places along sternum) and have had no incision pain since about Day 4. None whatsoever! Now back pain, that's a different story.
Best of luck whichever method they use.
Hi Sheila,<br><br>Congratulations on launching your journal. <br><br>It's great to meet you. <br><br>Unfortunately, I don't know much about scleroderma, the auto-immune disease you referenced in your story. <br><br>However, I talk with cardiac surgeons regularly. Next time, I'll see what I can learn from them. <br><br>As you prepare for surgery, please give us the updates! I'm sure you will do great!!!<br><br>Keep on tickin!<br><br>Adam
