  • The doctor thought it could be just a skin irritation on my scar. He didn't want to take any risks given my history. He pretty much dug a hole in my back with the swab. Didn't feel to good at all. I will let u know what comes of this.

  • Sorry RT girl, but I agree, better safe than sorry. When do you find out the results? I hope you have a better day today.

  • It is good that they are testing to make sure that all is ok.
    I really hope that is what they find; that it is just a skin irritation on your scar.
    Good luck and please come and let us know how you get on. :-)

  • I called the doctor today. Turns out my little scar scare was nothing. I guess it better to be safe than sorry.
