It will be a month post op on Tues. Arms feel like hard logs! Back of arms a little numb still and swelling most noticeable above elbow. Anyone else with similar problems? Arms look good otherwise. Still have pain but tolerable. Feels like nerve pain - sometimes shooting through top of arm!!I am hoping in another month this will be a memory????

Looked at scars today when changing MICROSPORE tape. One scar looks terrific- hardly visible- the other looks raised and a little red. One is flat- the other raised a little. Is this normal- for scars to heal differently?????
