Re: "Rice Krispies"
Yes I experienced that myself. That actually isnt the medical name for it, (I cant remember what its called) but that is what it feels like under the skin, like a bubblie crunching..lol hard to explain.
I had quite alot of it not too long ago with my lung surgery I had in November.
Its not painful, at least mine wasnt, its rather a gross feeling to both the people feeling it, and was to me as well. lol
It will disipate on its own Most times. Generaly its caused by a small "air leak" in the lung after lung surgery and the air gets under the skin. I still had quite a bit of it when I was discharged 5 days later. And STILL have a tiny bit now, but mostly gone.
Hope this helps explain it.
Take care, and I will say a prayer for your co-workers Mom.
