Yes, I have a few.

The first one when I came off my bike when I was about 16 after I got fired from my first Christmas job at Woolworths (for not giving out a docket!). Still have two scars on my knees.

Also have a bad one from a melanoma on my forehead, and Caesarian birth scars, plus one other operation.

Yes. I have a scar on my leg from where I once fell over with a shopping trolly in the middle of the road. It was a large deep cut that never heeled. I've also got a scar on my finger from where I almost sliced it off when cutting an apple.
What were you doing with a shopping trolley in the middle of the road?!
When I say shopping trolly, I don't mean the ones that you wander around with in the supermarket, I mean my personal trolly that you put your shopping in when going home, so you don't have to carry heavy bags.

I was about to cross to road, but when I pushed the trolley off the kerb, it toppled over, and I toppled with it.
Bryony . . . reminds me of when I did the "woolies shopping trolley into the garden bed" trick. . . Vee loves that story. I hope you were not badly hurt, as I was fine and able to laugh whilst spreadeagled among the plants.

It was very painful at the time, but it was not a serious wound.
I don't hve too many, one on the knee from kneeling on some tin as a youngst, otherwise numerous scars on my forearms from my darling cat Champers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (needless to say he is very spoilt)

I have lots of scars, both from operations and accidents.... it's a sign of living life to the full I think :)
My son, just turned four, already has several scars from accidents though thank goodness none from operations yet. He's a chip off the old block in terms of leading with his head and jumping and climbing and running around having a crazy fun time, which does end up with lots of first aid (I keep several packets of those stick-on stitches at home!) and the occasional trip to A&E, hence the scars. I would rather he have the scars and the fun than lead a sheltered life wrapped up in cotton wool, with no injuries but equally no fun.
All from Surgery, and a great deal of it....but under cover. :)
Yes, I have two on my right knee.

I have so many awful scars in so many areas that I just do not think about them any more !! Fortunately I have never been vain about my appearance being ruined by scars,or I would be a basket case!! Instead,they are simply signposts along the journey of my life.Most are from rather sizeable operations so they have real meaning.Then there are others from accidents and even playing rough with my pets!! These also have special meaning now,as anything to do with my animals has been fun even if blood was accidentally drawn!!!

I have one scar on my foot and I have never known what it is from

I don't have very visible scars. They fade overtime. In addition they are on areas that are often covered.
I have a scar just above my right eye from when I hit my head off the corner of a table. Its now referred to as my "Harry Potter scar" as it is very similar to the thunderbolt scar that Harry Potter has.
I have no really bad scars, but do have a small bit of lead pencil lead embedded in my thigh, from an incident at school where I was upset and someone stabbed a new pencil at me, through the summer dress, when I was 12.

My mother still has a faint scar on her hand from when she was bitten by a dog as a kid.
A couple of brand new ones from surgery, but they are tiny.
I have a 10cm scar on the upper part of my right arm. I broke my arm in a car accident 40+ years ago and needed surgery to pin the bone. Two years later the pin was removed so my arm was sliced open again. It is a talking point! My Dad also had a scar on his right arm (but nearer the elbow) and his was also from needing surgery after breaking a bone in a car accident. I have a few other minor scars from falling over as a kid.
I have one under my chin. Funny enough, so does my brother. I don't know how he got his, but I got mine when I was about 6 years old. I walked up the cement stairs of a soccer stadium and tripped on my shoe lace and tumbled down all the stairs. My face was bloodied but it healed ok, except for a 1/2 cm scar under my chin.
Tonnes of scars - a mixture of surgeries, clumsiness and other accidents. It's a sign of wear and tear and I'm not vain about them. I grew up having a scar on my face as a result of running into my brothers teeth as a toddler...its like a permanent bite mark just next to my eye. When you grow up with such a prominent scar, you kind of just get used to it. It's not ugly or anything, just a sign of an active childhood.
Two caesarean scars, several from where cannulas were placed on my hands when I was tiny sick child, and one on my shin from a bass drum .... don't ask!
I have a few scars on legs and arms from being a bit of a tomboy when growing up but the main one is a red blotch under the right eye on my cheek. I got this when I was three. I don't worry much about it any more, it gets redder when I'm upset or angry etc. When I get dressed up to go out I put some coverup on it, hardley see it.
Yes on my face from been scratch by my dog
Yes, one on my knee from kneeling on some tin as a child.
One when I was sterilised
One when I had my appendix out at 12yo
One when I fell over with a long stemmed glass of sherry and the stem broke and went into my wrist! (hic)
One where I broke a window to get in and cut my arm (won't say why I was getting in!)
Needless to say, have had a varied past............................

Scars from blood transfusions when I was born 'premmie'.
Caesarean scar.
Tiny scars from removal of moles etc etc etc.
I have a scar next to my right eye from a work place accident a gate hit me in the face on a stormy night whilst we were loading bins - smashed my glasses into my face and missed slicing my eye by about 3 mm. Scared the hell out of the other kitchen hand that was with me. aha.
Yes - quite a few from various surgeries.
A few scars. One small one under my chin when I split it open playing tug on the verandah next door with my neighbour when we were kids. Caesar scars which are hidden anyway. Another on my arm which I ripped open climbing a tree. Another under my foot which I cut on broken glass climbing down from a tree and bled for days. And finally one you can barely see on my leg (thanks to the surgeon's skill) when I had radical hip resurfacing years ago.
Yes from various accidents and operations.
Farley
Yes, from heart surgery, and back surgery, no more wanted - thanks

Farley

by Rice
