I'm 5 mos. post op from full TT and MR. My doctor pulled the incision very tight. The result is flat (great) but because of my allergy to glue and tape (couldn't use either) the tension on the incision in the center caused me to develop a small necrosis. It did heal finally with no infection but I'll need a revision sometime in the future when things soften up. I only started working out 4 weeks ago. I can feel the scar is thick (1" wide in the middle for about 4" long but totally flat and faded almost pink/white. It is white and thin on the sides to the hip area.I also have this strange tight pulling feeling like I have a wide piece of duct tape on my abs. When I pull up to exercise it pulls even tighter. Has anyone else had any experience with this at all? I'm wondering if this feeling is a natural part of healing and getting rid of numbness. Please answer if you can relate. Thanks.
I got hyperteophic scar tissue and then a steroid injection which widened the scar out to soften it a bit. My scar tissue is way better on my hips, really fading but it's thick and dark towards the middle. It does pull a little when I stretch out, especially before the steroid injection.
I hope yours turns out ok. Are you going to have it revised? It sounds like its fading well and that's awesome. Good luck!
