Only thing that really matters is that I don't have cancer and I hope it doesn't come back. But sometimes I like to pretend that I don't have to worry about that anymore and worry about the little, unimportant things I used to be able to worry about when I was invincible! This question is one of those.
Did anyone else's PEG tube leave an indent in their stomach? I am about 5 1/2 months from the last treatment. I don't mind the actual scar so much as I do the fact that it is indented/puckered somewhat. Da-n thing looks like a second belly button. Does this get any better on its own over time? Iam thinking about having the doctor try and "fix it up" but feel stupid doing that since I haven't at least reached the magic 3 year mark. If I am going to have a reoccurance then this is small stuff, but if I am going to live for many years then it becomes a little more important. Since I don't know the future then it is easier on my pschy to think about this scar and how it looks than to think about the "what ifs".
