Re: Ankle surgery

I can't really comment about the fibromyalgia link to the scar tissue. While I am not an expert on the subject, my understanding is that it is a sleep disorder and the muscles do not get enough rest which causes the build up of lactic acid and pain.

I am not clear on how that contributes to scar tissue.

Having said that- ALL surgical cuts cause scar tissue. Some people develop more than others. There are several factors that can affect the developement of scar tissue such as, health, weight, surgical procedure, incision location, suturing etc.
