    THR left side, posterior incision at around a week. Curve on the right upper side is shadow, incision length is about 6".

    Right image - looks much better now at 5½ weeks ... not nearly as scary :)

    Tee hee first time I have ever posted pics of my bum on the internet, here we are at 2 days post op , stitches are internal and dissolvable so hopefully won't be too obvious once all healed

    Really pleased with how neatly this has healed already at just over 8 weeks! Much smaller and less noticeable than I’d expected.
