Contrary to what you may think, the most disturbing parts of this photo are NOT the incisions themselves. But rather, the stretch marks and flabs of fat that surround my belly. I apologize in advance.
I have five incisions. Numbers 2 and 5 are almost completely invisible. Number one is very close to being totally healed. Number four is a bit swollen and tender and, of course, number 3 (the port) is the slowest to heal. Dontcha just love the yummy yellow bruises around the port incision? That small yellow/green bruise between numbers 2 and 4 is from the first blood thinner injection. The one they gave me after surgery (its a bit lower, thus cut from the photo) is just gnarly-looking. Its black and purple and green and yellow all at once. NOT pretty.
Oh, and yes, for those of you that were wondering. I really am that white. My husband jokes that I'm so white I'm almost transparent. Hahaha... *glare*
