    Question surgery scares and lack thereof

    I was writing about my experiences with surgery for a project and remembered something that I find very puzzling. I had tendon lengthening/stretching on both my achilles tendons to treat the tension caused by my spastic Cerebral Palsy. I also had my adductors done on both sides. Where my adductors were done on the sides of my legs I have very obvious scars. They look like white lines with white dots next to them where each stitch was put into my skin. But my feet have no scares whatsoever despite the achilles tendon lengthening. I was thinking "what the hell?!" Do scars from achilles tendon surgery like that simply disappear? I was 3 when I had the achilles tendon done. Am I simply not seeing the scares because I was too young to remember where they were? Why are my other scares so obvious in comparison? Why did my other scares never really fade?

    Any thoughts?
