… I took my dressings off.
I have a rather unsightly belly button that I suspect will be even more likely to gather fluff for the short term at least. The other scars are only about 5mm in length and will mostly disappear once the hair has grown back. I can still feel the stitches beneath the skin; great big lumps in the case of the belly button.
I think the yellow colouration is either iodine staining or some light bruising – it looks worse than it feels.
