Re: Post surgery

I am nearly two years post surgery and I have two very fine lines where my wle and snb scars are, they basically look like creases if anything.  I remember when my nurse took the dressings off the first thing she said was how lovely they were and that once the redness had settled down they would fade to nothing, and oh how right she was.

 

Have you taken your dressing off yet

Re: Post surgery

For what it's worth I was delighted with what I found under the dressing - I'd expected it to look like a dog's breakfast but it was a perfectly OK scar. I see you left this yesterday - have you braved the dressing removal yet?

Post surgery

Hi everyone
I’m two days post lumpectomy and have been told today I can take the dressings off
However I’m just not sure I am ready to see what’s underneath
Could anyone give me a rough idea of how’s it looks x
