I used neosporin+pain cream on my incisions for a whole month. I think it helped. At about five weeks they were much better. The worst of it was just how clothing touched them, and any waistbands had to be rolled or pulled down under them. I was having scrotum swelling and pain issues as described elsewhere, again an aid to that was using a sexy g-string thing that gave adequate support without hurting anything above. At six weeks now there are still bumps and tenderness.

hi,
I sent you a msg when I was 3 weeks post op. I am now 8 weeks post op and the burning has gone, but im still quite swollen across my pelvis, my stomach looks a bit distorted. I had my 8 week check with my surgeon on Friday and he said everything was looking good, and it takes a long time for things to settle down Sad. I hope you are feeling a bit better, let me know how yr doing.
