I am 4 + weeks post open heart surgery and my scar looks good. I wash it daily with antibacterial soap and rinse it off with water in the shower (no scrubbing, no washcloth). Almost all of the scabs are off at this point except for a round white ball at the bottom of the incision. I don't have the best eyesight but I think that this might be a knot from the sutures. Its outside of the skin (not underneath). Has anyone else experienced this?
