I had an operation in Nov 2013. The scar was 13cm long on my stomach. It looked good, all went well and got out the next day.
7 days later, I changed my dressing on my stomach. As I did that, my scar opened up. My wife rushed me to A&E at the Southern General in Glasgow, hoping to be in overnight and the next day get it sewed up. However, I was told that they were not going to do anything to it, so the scar was 13cm long and 5cm wide on my stomach. I was told it would heal from inside out and it would take no longer than 3 months long to heal. However, now 7 month later it is now 7cm long and still 5cm wide.
I got to a point I do not want to be here, as I see no end in sight to my scar healing. I am losing so much blood through the scar bleeding. I am in a lot of pain due to it and I have wasted a lot of t-shirts and jumpers due to it bleeding so much. I wish I did not have the surgery done, as I am in a worse state now than I was before it.
