What's the best TENS unit for endo, hip, and back pain.

I have an Omron but it can only be used 45 min a day. I want something intense I can use for long periods of time ideally with recharging features and more than 2 pads.

Trying to figure out what I… read more

Flareups are a killer. I am currently having one.

Still scab at the surgical wound from last year, normal?

Last summer I had a laparoscopy and still have scabs on my belly button. There they had to sew me again after the operation. That's why I wonder if that's normal? I did not have any follow-up and no one ever looked at the surgical wounds. That's why I'm unsure. It is a lot and thick scab, right at the seam. I do not dare to remove it myself, strange as it sounds. Should I have a doctor look at it? After all, the operation is already a year ago.
