pain in long old scar tissue

Hi. When i was three years old i fell off my front door step onto a glass milk bottle, the bottle was stuck in my hand. I had microsurgery and plastic surgery. I am now twenty one years old and I am getting alot of pain in my hand where the scar is. Is this normal?

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?
Thanx

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
