Hiya

This is the paranoid Clare type question again.  I am getting a lot of stretch marks around where my appendix scar is and actually they all start on the scar. The marks all look red and angry and the scar is tender to the touch - strange as it is 13 years since my sppendix was taken out. Is this normal ? 

Thanks

Clare

Hi Clare

The changes are probably because your tummy is now nicely bigger than normal. The skin has to stretch to accomodate baby, so any abdo scars also have to stretch (what makes these scars red & angry is because the skin becomes less stretchy where the nerve endings/ incision has been made).

Next time you see your midwife, or if it gets any worse, ask her/ him to have a look at it.
