Hi, I had triple bi-pass surgery this past XXXXXXX While my sternum has healed and I am not in pain there, I keep feeling something moving (like when I take a deep breath). Almost like someone cracking their knuckles. It worries me, My pectoral muscles are no longer painful unless I stress them but I still can't do even one pushup without pain.
