how old ise the scar?i know one of my scarsr but me in great pain after the Operation.I suppose it was like few weeks after it went away.Scars take time to heal,especially after the bigger operations,due to their size.My one scar also wouldnt allow to move my leg much,because it seemed as if it would stretch it too much or yeah,the pain was intense.Movement comes,it takes time and is hard,but it starts moving,no doubt for that.
