is the incision supposed to be hard?
I'm almost 1 month post op, got my stitches out @ 2 wks and put steri strips on for another 2 wks. Now the strips fell off and I'm using scar strips. I noticed my incision has remained a little hard, is this normal?

Yes it's normal. just the scar tissue in there. It goes away in time, flattens out and you wont feel it anymore.

Massaging the scars helps break down the scar tissue, my ps has recommended this for me x

yeah, i work at a physical therapy office, and after all kinds of surgeries, you can get scars... if they are really thick, they can be keloid, which basically just means it goes a few tissue layers thick...
if it is completely closed up, no stitches, no scabs, you can start to massage... it can be really sore at first but to break up the scar tissue in a scar you need to be a little rough. it helps to use some thick cream or cocoa butter for lubrication, so you dont irritate the skin. massage for a few minutes a couple times a day, and you should notice a difference soon.

yes, you need to massage the scars. I didn't know this until a mos po when I went to see ps for final time. He said to massage when I put on my scar cream and I have been doing this for a month and have really noticed a difference!
It was little uncomfy at first but only the first few times. Like most gals said, it is scar tissue.
