  • did you wear anything different that could have aggravated it? did you pull the skin or strain that part of your tummy? mine itches a little sometimes and aches sometime, but it doesn't really hurt ever. . . it's pretty old so i'm not sure if infection is still possible. i would say it's probably scar tissue, but imo something aggravated it.

  • I had a C nearly 7 yrs ago, and mine hurts if I drink alcohol (which is rare), do a lot of housework in one day (like washing floors, vacuuming, AND lugging laundry) or stretch too far. It should be better tomorrow.
