I Have A Scar On My Knee

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 192 People

    When I Was 3..

    As we were leaving Seaworld, I tripped on this jagged piece of asphalt and sliced my knee open bad. It required a good bit of stiches and I still have the scar today. They said it would be gone in 6 months but its been 13 years.

    Left With A Scar

    I have a scar just above my right knee. I was cutting concrete with a big angle grinder with a masonry blade when it kicked back on me and left a gash down to the bone. I got 25 stitches in and around the wound.
