Oh no!!! The lead has pulled off my ribs!!

Uh oh!!
I think the lead has pulled off my ribs area as now you can see a bump when I move in certain ways and can feel the wire and even move it!

The only thing I can think is that I recently returned to the gym to begin a rehabilitation back to exercise again. I was just using the stepper and walking on an incline but my personal trainer got me doing some work on the step and with 2kg weights (which is nothing compared to the 5kg I was using before the operation). 
I didn't notice that day or even for 2 days later, but I was in a lot of muscle pain around the back of the ribs, which was just from the exercise itself.
Not sure what to do about it! Surely it will secure itself back down again with new scarring?? 
I have got an unrelated doctors appointment on Tuesday so maybe I will ask about it then. 

UPDATE: Tuesday 17th February 2015
Well that was a waste of time!!!!
I explained the problem and she asked to see. I lifted up my top and showed her, I even put my finger where to wires sticking out were but she said she didn't know what she away supposed to be feeling as she doesn't know what the wires feel like. I asked her to touch gently, but press down, as then you squash the wires and won't feel them, but she didn't do that. 
She then quizzed me about what I'd had done but didn't really ask why or how it was, or even check my scars at all! 
She then palmed it off on me calling my consultant's secretary and printed off letters which I have a copy of, with out of date phone numbers due to the hospital changing sites last year. 
So I am none the wiser about what is recommended or advise for the future. Great!!!!!
