My incisions have been nearly bone to bone (sternum to pelvice). But to be honest, my backside from rectum removal, hurt worse than the front side. And since I had prior surgery for resections, I already had a vertical scar, but they just cut it out when they did this last surgery.
Diagnosed with CD in 1979, many resections and meds
