    I’m 11 days post op and I’ve just had a bath and didn’t realise how deep the water was, therefore I got my stitches slightly wet. My plasters obviously came off. I’m panicking because of risk of infection. The scars look like they’re pretty much healed but are still quite red. I have put some cotton pads on for now. I’ll attach some pictures of my scars so you can tell me what you think
