Still Ouch with my Scar
Hope you're all keeping your peckers up. Not always easy.
I continue to recover well. I'm now back on a stick, having been pushed forward by the physio last Monday. It was like being let out of prison!! Off I went into town, enjoying watching the world go by whilst enjoying a Greggs.
But I'm a little worried about something I wanted to ask about. It's now almost 6 weeks since my operation, and nearly 4 weeks since the clips were taken out by the practice nurse. She noticed that there was a spot mid scar that looked a little bit more raw than the rest. She was going to put some stripe on it, but decided against it and just put and overall dressing on for a few days after the clips were removed.
The problem is, that patch has never stopped being more tender than the rest, and yesterday, I sat on.my bed and it pulled back the skin as I sunk into the bed, and the scar really hurt at that spot. I couldn't see any blood loss, and the carer this morning said it looked more inflamed than the rest of the scar, but that it wasn't open.
Do you think it's time to revisit the practice nurse? Nearly 6 weeks does seem a long time.
