    I had a heart op when I was 5 years old, this was to close a hole which should have closed when I was born.
    Well over the last couple of days the scar area has been giving me a bit of gip and last night the area had swollen a bit, The swelling has almost gone down this morning but it just doesn't feel right.
    I dont know if I should pop to the GP and just get it checked out (if I can get an appointment) or wait a few more days and see what happens.

    I vote for calling your doc and explaining it to the office nurse. Let them decide if you should be seen right now or wait a bit. But I'd not wait to make the call.

    Oh Laura, I would go to the doctor, tell them you need to see them today and explain why. I would think they will get you in today. Please don't wait to see what happens

    Let me know how it goes

    I was really surprised i got an appointment today. I've just spoken to my mum and she said that the only thing we were told could happen was the scar inside could tear. which happened when I was about 9 and as a result I do have a small lump that appears sometimes when I cough or sneeze.
    I just hope its nothing to worry about.

    I'm so glad you got an appointment :) It's better to get it checked out because all you will do is worry

    Okay update.
    Just got home from GP, I've got an appointment at a hospital at 4.00 for a chest X-ray. I've got an ECG booked for the 13th, I'm also booked in for bloody tests. Got to wait for an appointment for an ultra-scan as the doctor found a lump in my stomach that she need to have checked. She wants to rule out an anything serious.
    So it's just a case of waiting for all the tests and results now.
