This is a question Scars with history

You've all got scars: they're nature's little reminders not to be so damned stupid next time. My favourite is the 1/4" round hole in the back of my right hand, created when I was 7 by my best friend putting a manure-covered gardening fork "away".

Tell us the stories behind your scars. With photos if possible.

Surgeon's handywork
Many years ago I had to have an operation on my heart, which came with a lovely hole in it when I was born, which means I had a nice big scar running from my back, under my right arm to just under my chest. That one is quite inconspicuos. I also had a moleste scar down my chest to the top of my stomach which, with normal child growth and an expanding waist got bigger over the years.

Fast forward to 2 years ago and I needed a bit of a valve replacement in the old ticker so the (French) quack had a look at the old scar and said that after surgery they would tidy it up and make it much neater. So here I sit, scratching the bloody thing as it hasn't stopped itching since the day they cut me open, with a much longer and wider scar, with more scars either side of it (at 1cm intervals all the way down) where the staples that held it together were yanked out. Not only that but the bastards put a six inch scar at the top of my leg and I haven't had any sensation on the skin around the top of my leg since.

Bloody French, still, at least I didn't get MRSA.
