I just had my first CT scan since surgery. I had to go to a different radiologist because I have moved. So, I just received the report from my doctor and it suggested that I had soft tissue density near the area of surgery and pelvic. The radiologist and my surgeon suggested a 3 month scan to compare. My dr seems not too concerned and said 3 months will be fine. Anyone else had this? I’m freaking out.... does scar tissue show up as this from surgery?
