Hey all! Well I finally got a picture taken of my scar as of today, and it looks pretty glorious if you ask me. Just take note of the scar above it...its from when I had my spleen and gallbladder out when I was 6. It's so weird having a second scar, and my surgeon overlapped the two so I literally have a 9 inch scar down my stomach..whew!
I included a link from facebook where my picture is...sorry if you cant see it, I will try to post it again.
