Hi Ladies ,
I have my surgery planned for Wednesday and am trying to come to terms with all the aspects of the surgery... As you are all familiar, it's traumatic and really worrying thinking about how different my body will be.
The surgeon im dealing with is quite evasive and ive now had 3 separate conversations with him and not felt any more assured or better about it as he doesn't ever say anything encouraging.
He tends to admit there are risks and wont provide stats... lymphedema, or he doesn't explain related issues... Ive given up on trying to get any more information and i feel quite sad about it. I don't feel confident or ready for the surgery as a result..
One of the questions i had was about the belly button scar. I explained that my previous surgeron that did a laparoscopy did a great job of stitching my belly button and it still looks very natural.
The surgeon explained that he will not be doing it in the same way, instead he will make the incision vertically and he also advised that it will create a large scar and he cannot guarantee that it will look normal, but recommended seeing a plastic surgeon afterwards.
This really upset me. I feel bad about caring for such things , i know there are bigger issues but I wanted to know how bug is your scar and was it larger than the belly button or was it concealed within the belly button?
Did anyone else have a similar issue , and have to see a plastic surgeon?
