I did not do it last time and therefor think maybe I should this time. I was given an unnecassary slice, though, so I'm afraid of opening that back up. But, as I say, the cut was unnecassary, so I don't really think you have to do the massage. I think that what you have to do is believe that something that big will, in fact, make it's way out of that opening, and then you'll be fine. Don't stress it, just surrender to the power of your body.
