I had my surgery on 2nd June and apart from a small issue with one of the drainage stitches it hasn't been a real problem. Yes the area around it does get very tight and I have been pouring Bio oil over the area surrounding the scar and on the scar itself now for some weeks.
What I haven't been able to do is actually touch the scar with my hand. I use the shower to wash it and pat it dry with a towel and pour the oil without touching it.
Am I the only person to feel like this? I am really not usually a squeamish person and really feel it's important I accept the scar as part of my body (a bit ott I know) but if anyone else felt like this how did you deal with it.
I have bought some surgical gloves from e bay in readiness but how did others do it or wasn't it an issue?
I said it was a daft question. 😋
