Had a LSH/BSO on Feb 11 and my belly button incision (which is sewed back together kinda funky looking) is driving me absolutely crazy!! I have tried ice packs for the swelling and that seems to help me avoid wanting to scratch my stomach apart. Anyone have any advice on how to cope with the itching incisions on my belly???
Check with your doc first, but when I had that problem (still do sometimes), my doc told me to rub a little cocoa butter on the incision area
(this is only if you already had your staples out, if any). I still use it for itching.
