“Be really careful with exercise, I had mine done laparoscopically too and the doctor advised I could go back to normal exercise within 2 months (but no skiing, kayaking and abdominal exercises for a while longer).

But when I did start exercise again (As scheduled) I actually pulled my scar apart. The skin was still there over the top but there was a gap and It filled up with really dark icky blood and was totally gross, I ended up seeing a plastic surgeon who gave me tape that I had to wear on it everyday to help it close up (hahaha she said “”it is a bra for your scar””).

Despite this the scar is almost invisible now but I wish I had been a little more careful and a great big purple lump in the middle of your tummy does nothing for your sex life :p”
