May be a dumb question but I just found a penny stuck to my stomach. Will this cause issues? (Photo)

Somehow my daughter's money got into my garment and the penny stuck into my stomach. I'm 13 days post op. The indent is deep. It hurt taking my it off. Will this cause any type of scaring?

Now that is an interesting question.  It is doubtful that you have caused any damage, but follow up with your surgeon for an exam to confirm.
