Depends on time: When scar is initially forming, the sites should feel firm, maybe lumpy or raised. With time, healing gradually progresses with increased blood flow and fibrous tissue (scar) is laid down to hold tissues together. In time it softens and becomes less noticeable. If from internal surgery scarring may form adhesions which can cause pain, gas, etc. See your physician.
