I have a huge scar on my back from my scoliosis surgery last year. Normally, I don't mind little scars and different things like that. But, this is on my whole back, and it's very noticeable. People at my school will always point it out and even teachers point it out to me. I always hate my scar and will wear clothes to cover it up, but sometimes people will pull up the back of my shirt to see it. I've been told that my scar is hideous and that I just always need to cover it up, but it's hard to. I used to not care about it but now I'm always wearing sweatshirts so it's covered. I don't really know how to deal with the other people in my school with my scar because I've only had the scar for a little over a year. It's just really complicated for me because of so many people pointing it out.

You'll get used to the comments eventually. It's nothing to be self conscious about. It's there to stay and you'll get so used to it you won't hardly think about it at some point. I have like a 3 inch scar from surgery where my first rib was removed and a neck muscle and that's never bothered me. It's noticeable with certain shirts but I haven't received any comments but I'm not in high school anymore. I'm sure high schoolers are more likely to point that stuff out. you should make a point to tell people not to lift up the back of your shirt. That's inexcusable for people to do that1
