Three months after surgery and I feel great...no limitations, no pain. I still have some numb areas on my hips and abdomen, but definitely no pain. I use prescription scar cream once a day. Right now, the scars are worse than ever. They did warn me at the doctor's office that they would look red, puffy and raised at the three month mark and not to worry. They were right. It's not too bad though...just itch and really dry. This should only last a couple of weeks. All of the swelling is totally gone and I look and feel great. Would do it all over again!!
