it split from bending. It was about 5 cm on the top of my incision (which is 18cm long -I had a medial incision to use a couple of old scars I had from previous surgeries). I actually felt it “release”. After consulting with the PA and sending pictures they told me to take 4 days off of PT. After that it was “bending as tolerated” so I would bend- and watch the incision. If it started to pull I stopped. It took about 11 days to close again. I monitored for infection but was told just to leave it be. I also was still wearing compression tights so that made it feel protected. I kept it clean by chainring tights 2x day. I washed sight with Hibiclens (surgical soap) and dried well when I showered. I didn’t have staples had internal stitches and glue on the outside. Below is the first pic at 4 days after it split when it started “gluing” back together. It was like a flap. 2nd picture is just right now of the same spot (texture on my skin is from compression on ice machine) After that spot was weird and puffy so I did some research and started using “Forces of Nature” scar which is a FDA registered (I’m in the US) homeopathic scar medicine. That spot actually looks better than below where they incorporated my old 3.5 “ scarHope you don’t mind me asking, but how was your wound treated when the incision split open? And how long did it take to heal? Could you bend your knee while it was healing?
