This thread is just for pictures of your scars.

Any extraneous chat will be removed - please keep comments in your recovery threads

Notes:
- 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 only have a healed up picture. They did not use staples on mine, just dissolving sutures.

I just found this discussion, so thought I'd throw mine in.

The 1st & 3rd replacements were through the front, via the same cuts so you can only see the one scar. This scar is 7 weeks post-op.

The 2nd replacement was through the back, which is much hard to get a good photo of.

The other, mainly arthroscopic scars are from other procedures that preceded the replacements.
