Battle scars! I love that, Bull - you made me smile big.
Champ, my surgeon only does laparoscopic surgery. I have a 1/2 inch incision on the left side of my abdomen, (and the "JP drain" was coming out of that until morning of discharge when they removed it)
a small incision several inches below my belly button, near where my "bikini incision" was for my Caesarean sections, also he made an incision through the belly button, and then the stoma site on the right. So: five little holes, N, S, E and W, and middle. Sounds like what Bull describes.
I can't see the one furthest South because my belly protrudes. I have not bothered to get a mirror to check it out, I've just felt it when carefully cleaning it in the shower.
How are ya doing?
