Is your scar front or back? Mine is front, from the left of my navel to my c-sec scar. (Just had another added to my neck last month.) The scar from my A.L.I.F. of L4-S1 didn't fade very quickly (that or I just stopped looking), but now (5 yrs later), I can barely see it.
Hope this helped. Hang in there, you'll be feeling better in no time,
Janet. :)
