Sure they come to the site of inflammation, it is part of the healing process. I can't remember where I read this or who told me. They said, "Think of what happens to a sliver in your hand" First it gets pussy and then when the body can't get rid of it , it incapsulates it in a fibrous material. Scar tissue. And it keeps building it to protect the body from foreign objects. Same thing happens in side us and over time it connects it self and grows tougher. Foreign objects could just be blood left inside us. BUMMER !!! JAYNIE
