    Help My scar opened back up?

    Advertisements
    I was approved to do everything again and was feeling great. I have been exercising and decided to move furniture today. Nothing too big (as far as I thought). I noticed a pinching at my incision site the past couple of days and today I finally "lifted the flap" and looked at my scar. There is a half centimeter that has opened back up!

    My super pretty incision is open again. So what do I do? My first thought is to super glue it back together. It isn't infected and doesnt really hurt unless my clothes rub against it. It looked completely healed. I can't believe I busted open.
    I would like to be with my for a while but thats what made me so tired in the first place!

    Oh nooo

    I'd definitely call the doctor and see what they recommend. Is it really deep? You might just be able to put some neosporin on it and cover it with a bandaid.

    Definitely call and see what your doctor recommends though... maybe they'll have you come back in.

    I would call the dr.

    I know it's a pain to have to call and possibly go in, but you really don't want to get and infection or anything from it.

    talk to your dr........

    as long as it isn't infected they will probably let it reheal itself.......

    however it can become infected and end up being a mess to re close.......

    I agree- call the doc, especially if it looks like it could use a few stitches. If it is deep, it will make for a worse looking scar if it isn't restitched.

    ish! Call the doc. It could wouldn't hurt to get it checked out, cleaned and stitched again.

    Well poop. It doesn't look too deep. I'm going to have DH look at it when he gets home. I'm just mad that its open again. It was just doing so well.

    It's still bleeding a little but its still very small. It just sucks. I'll call the doctor when they open in the morning.
