Purple line on tummy tuck scar

So today I pressed on my tummy as it’s been so itchy & felt this ‘ping feeling’ it just didn’t feel right so I took off binder & looked. This purple line appeared. Seems to be another cut? thoughts? Is it a tear? have I popped stitches? It’s the cokour of the marker he used to draw me up before surgery! Should I ring the PS. Mum seems to think it’s nothing, but it worries me

Purple line after tummy tuck

    Or am I being a drama queen? Lol

  2. Donna says:

    Is it just a crease not cut maybe

  3. Lucy says:

    Well it’s just appeared, might just pop in tomorrow & ask. It just looks so goid & don’t want anything going wrong

  4. Sarah says:

    Could be where they put the local anasthetic in? I had a few that looked like that when I had my sides done

  5. Natalie says:

    I went to the doc for a spot on my side he said if it doesn’t get better I was to fill a script of antibiotics but after he dressed it I kept it cover and it slowly got better just go to be safe :))) that way ur mind will be at ease

  6. Loren says:

    Are u talking bout the purple line?
    I think that’s actually the marker where dr marks ur body for the tummy tuck op

  7. Lucy says:

    Yeah the purple line. It appeared after I felt the ‘ping’ it wasn’t there yesterday?

  8. Loren says:

    I have it and I always thought it was the marker my dr drew on me with lol
    I could be wrong though
    Mine seem to come through at different times
    I have 2 lines similar

  9. Lucy says:

    It wouldn’t fazrle me if I hadn’t felt that ‘ping’ sensation when it happened. Going to call in & see him 1st thing in morn. Then my mind will be at ease. lol

  10. Loren says:

    Yep def do that
    Let me know how u go
    I would be interested to know cause I just always assumed lol

  11. Tracy says:

    Best to get it checked to ease your mind but it does just look like marker but weird how it’s just appeared too

  12. Lucy says:

    Yeah it seems like a very fine cut, maybe his hand slipped? Will fill you all in tomorrow when I know for sure!

  13. Tracy says:

    I’ll be interested to see what the answer is

  14. Lucy says:

    Will post as soon as I know. I love this group! Thanks everyone!
