I have to be honest through my recovery I did not massage my chest, could this affect the end result? I mean I stimulated it a little bit, but not the 10 minutes everyday that was advised. My reason being is I never really had very hard lumping, swelling or even bruising. I'm worried this could have perhaps jeopardized the end result? Could it? its 7 months later now -? hmmm.... is there any point to massage at this point in my development?

In general, massage helps if there is a bit of swelling, scar tissue, unevenness, etc.  I generally recommend between 3-6 months.  After that, the use of massage is questionable -- but then again, every case is different.

If you are satisfied with your result as it is, then I would not bother about it.
