    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 :)

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