Swelling above pm scar, feeling sad
I am 9 days after surgery. When I took dressing and steri strips off I was shocked by what I saw. Above the scar line is swollen and misshapen. I phoned hospital yesterday and they called me on for a look at it. The doctor said it’s just swelling although the nurses were convinced it was a harmatoma.
The doctor told me to take 5 days course of paracetamol. The swelling is painful. They did blood tests and they were clear.
I hate looking at my scar and even through clothes it looks awful. I am quite depressed. I don’t want anyone to see it even my husband. I was finding it difficult coming to terms with having a pm and this has just made it worse.
Any ideas for reducing swelling or anything that might help???
