Wondering if it's normal to have no pain but be itchy on incision site?

In brief: Common

Itching at the site of an incision is not uncommon and may be due to small nerve fibers regenerating in the skin around the scar as well as a change in skin texture at the scar site.
Itching can go on for months after surgery.
