DescriptionHistory-- I was born with a teratoma. At age 6 weeks it was discoved and removed. I had a colostomy bag after surgey. At age 3 months they had to recut the same two scars and put everything back the way it was pre surgery.
At age 21 I had a partial hysterectomy. They used the same scar. But this time it was extended in both directions and healed poorly. The stiches came out and the scar gapped open. Over the course of the last several years my scar has become contracted and very painful. Due to the folds of skin around the scar I get red areas they often become raw.
