Just wondering if anyone went swimming while in their cast? The Dr. says I can but not sure how that soaking really affects the scar. I had gone swimming in college when I had stitches & that ended up softening up the stitches & leaving me with a round scar instead of a neat little line. Then when I had rotator cuff surgery a while back, one of the sites that had steri strips on it opened up a bit & left me with a round scar there too. I’d love to get some good exercise in but am afraid of what swimming might do to it given my history. I don’t consider crutching everywhere good exercise though it’s certainly getting upper body work in not to mention 1 legged squats.
