Ok, this is more of an "intimacy" question but here's the sitch. When I had my surgery to remove my cancer, it left a 15" scar across my abdomen and part of my side. I'm also not the smallest of women out there, so I have a bit of a gut. When my bf and I cuddle or hold each other, and even when he is tickling me, I'm always very aware of my scar. It's only been 6 months since the surgery and I feel a bit self conscious about it. It's not like he's looking at it or anything, I always have a shirt on. But I feel like I pull away or try to move his hands whenever they are near or on my scar.
This is normal right? When does that "uncomfortable because you're touching there" feeling go away? I mean, because I'm chubby, I've never really had anyone putting their hands there anyway but I want to feel as comfortable as possible in his arms, y'know?
