    This is 14 days out. After looking through all of the pictures here I am pretty sure I hold the record for the longest and worst hip replacement scar ever. The picture does not show the three inches that continue around the back! 19 inches of pain.

    Posted earlier after five days. The latest is after five months. The little line is blending in and hopefully will be nearly invisible soon.

    Just nearly 8 weeks post ok. A huge scar, probably because I'm obese.

    When researching the SuperPath technique, I could not find a good picture or diagram that showed the incision location. This is only Day 4 so the 4 inch incision is still covered up but you can see where it is (if interested).
