Stretch Marks?

Is it possible to get stretch marks after this surgery? I am almost one month out -- tonight, I noticed red streaks on my stomach. I about fell over. They were not there this morning. They don't hurt. They look similar to what I had while pregnant. But it just has me concerned. No pain or discomfort anywhere. Has anyone else had this happen?

Stretch Marks?

I used a ton of cocoa butter and vitamin e while I was prenant to avoid them and thankfully it worked. Well Im not sure if cream can even help, I think it all has to do with the elastisity of the skin.

Ive heard they itch when they begin. But other than that Im not sure. Also if you didnt get them while you were pregnant chances are you wont get them now. Im not expert, just trying to make you feel better

The best advice I can give you is NOT TO ITCH! Thats what my mom would tell me.

I hope it turns out to be nothing! In the mean time put LOTS of cream on
