i have had a kidney partial removal surgery 8 yrs ago, and i have a very large horizontal scar on my right side, about maybe 6~8 inches. Since then, i often get these pins, needles sensation on that scar, and i get very nervous about these sporadic "pains-sensations". I go for yearly CAT scan for check up, last one was 9 months ago. Am i paranoid? These sensations can be caused by emotional thoughts? or by extreme cold temperatures? or by pulling muscles?

Did you injure yourself again at the same site ?

If no is the pain momentary r continuous ,if continous get an xray done ?

Is there any local swelling ?

Get a fresh xray done as we have seen patients who have developed foreign body granuloma after 18-20 years of injury

Mr Reuben

FYI long scars often involve nerve twigs or while closure some subcutaneous nerve may get entangled in the suture line ,all your symptoms are known symptoms ,you are not paranoid nor will yealy CT help - Tab Methylcobalamine once a day for 3 months - minimum six weeks In case you need further clarification drop in a line

Get well soon
