    scar

    Hi
    I was wondering what could have caused a 3 1/2 inch scar over the left quadrant of abdomen.I don't know know if it was lower on the abdomen or not.I am not sure it it was surgical or not.

    scar

    Is the scar on the left side of the person who has it or on the left as your looking at it, I know that may seem like a dingy question I just wanted to clerifly it. and is it a verticle or horizontle scar, flat or raised ? I don't mean to bombard you with particulars but I am trying to get a picture in my head. thanx.

    It was likely a surgical scar of some sort. Surgical scars today are usually very small, and circular because of the newer types of surgery available.

    A scar the size that you describe would have involved cutting with a scalpel. Most likely would have been an apendectomy scar, but could also have been for removal of gall stones/gall bladder, or for hysterectomy, possibly for a Ceasarian Section procedure. Without the specifics, it is hard to tell, and as the previous poster stated, often the term "left side" can mean the victim's left side (as it should) or sometimes it is incorrectly stated Left when the person making the notes meant Right.

    It is also possible, that the scar could have been caused in another manner, not related to surgery.

    If it is a c-section scar it must have been a premature or very small baby to be 3 1/2 inches. I've had 3 c-sections and my scar is 8 inches across. Mine is horizontal across the very lower party of my belly, though some c-sections are done verticle up and down the center of the belly. Usually they are not off to one side though. Maybe it could have been surgery for her left ovary? This is all of course,if we are talking about a female.

    My gall bladder scar is on my right side, and only about 1 1/2 inches.
