    Otoplasty surgery

    Hi i recently had otoplasty surgery done about 10 weeks ago and i had a few concerns not knowing if normal because of being my first time doing any type of surgery.

    First i have bump behind my ears and on the scar, on the left ear it has a bump that's solid round that doesn't hurt if i touch or squeeze a little. and a verrry small one that's not so evident on the lower part which is solid hard.

    On the right ear there's a sharp like bump in the middle right off of the scar. different from other bump on left ear, hurts more if push a little the other doesn't really hurt.

    there's also a thickness all over the top part of the scars for both ears. the thickness sore if squeeze a little.

    not sure if any normal, but doctor saw a month + after the surgery and said don't worry it will go away soon, i asked reassuringly he said im the surgeon and ive done this before, whos the surgeon me or you? and said im telling you the same thing.

    not sure if normal or what people might encountered/know but any feedback on this matter would help a lot.

    On top of this i have still bruising much more in left ear then right ear. it has been more swollen and sore much more and longer than the right ear. it has been 10 weeks for my surgery and it has gone down but not completely and feels as if its in the same size for a while.

    Thanks for your time and please let me know if you have more insight or someone even had the surgery and had similiar experiences.
