on the third day, the incision broke open (no infection) starting on the left side, but the wound leaked a lot for 3 weeks , then it took about 3 months for the incision to fully heal. For a while I had pain in
side whenever I went for the prone position. That is almost all gone now. However, if I pick up a heavy object, the left side seems very sore and sensitive ( the skin seems sensitized ) and there is pain.
