    This thread is just for pictures of your scars.

    - it's easier to see details in smaller pics than huge ones
    - the use of tablets and phones makes smaller images much preferable
    - most cameras take photos that are 1-2,000 pixels wide - IOW HUGE!
    - so resize images to 300x500 pixels maximum
    - don't post images that are too dark to see anything or not in focus

              I'm not sure if I want to post my stretch marked butt after such a cutie belonging to hurtingbuthopeful but here goes. Guess it takes all kind of butts to make a world. I also wonder if I hold the record for the longest scar??? Well I always was an over achiever!!!! About a year PO.

                            Here's a pic of my Anterior Approach done by Dr. Downer (Swedish Hospital in Ballard WA.)

                              Here is my scar 4 days post-op. Looks pretty scary. The vertical scar is part of my original surgery when I broke the hip. He obviously had to make an additional cut. I assume it was due to the large implement and the previous break and surgery left a lot of extra bone and scar tissue.

                              And the blemish under the dollar bill is where the drain tube was. The blemish to the bottom left of the scar is a poorly timed pimple that came close to causing a delay of my surgery

                                Will post a couple rude pics here---one is from 5-14--3 days after surgery and the other is 5-19 and its healing quite well. Wish the rest of the healing was going as well.

                                    Well thought I'd best join you all and post up a picture of my scar - this is it at 8 weeks - it does seem as though it is starting to look better each day now. It is about 6-7" long depending on how I bend........

                                    Look the other way if you get scared easily, lol

                                      3½ months post-op... healing quite nicely if I do say so myself!

                                        Hello there!
                                        Here is my scar , 11 weeks post-op. I was really worried about how it would turn out to be (I know I sound superficial but I didn't want people to stare when I'm in bikini :) )but my doctor told me that he'd do his best and and I think it doesn't look that bad!
