Firm and numb: The skin around the incision is most likely a bit numb, or even tingly. Plus, the area should be firm, due to the inflammation and contracture that occurs with wound healing. The wound should soften after a few months. The numbness will last for several weeks to months as well. Good luck. ...Read more
