Hi Rider Fan,
I had a right hemi-colectomy in 1987 and my scar is 2 inches above and around my belly button (right side) and straight down. They used the same site for resections in '97 and '02. Are you having surgery? Where is your crohn's located?
3 inches south of the BB and about 4 inches north....I have always had an "innie" for bb so the slice went right along the edge of the opening but of course not through the knot itself.
Funny thing is that when I first saw the scar/incision the day after the surgery I thought holy mackerel he cut me stem to stern...it looked about 18 inches long.....but as the thing healed...the swelling when down and time passed it re-sized down to about 7 inches....took about 22 staples and three or four stiches to close it
For us guys it is not so bad.....I am pretty hairy and all of my "happy trail" and stomach ahir pretty much hides the scar.
