I have just had open surgery on Thursday (28th Aug). I know I am just panicking about everything. My scar obviously looks bad at this stage and I know will get better. But what is worrying me is that it has a rid (like a small tire!) Is that just the swelling? please tell me that will go when the swelling goes. I use to have a flat stomach and have never had a rid in my tummy area before.
Also when can I start putting oil on it to help reduce the scar. When they let you out of hospital they don't tell you what pain is normal or what things will look like.
Just panicking over everything. I have to stop doing that to myself. That's when my anxiety takes over.
