Pain in scar after FUT hair transplant

I had a hair transplant (FUT method) 6 months ago. My incision where the strip was taken out was closed with a combination of dissolving stitches and staples. I went 2 weeks after my procedure to have my staples taken out and was told that everything looked normal and was healing nicely. Recently I have started to feel pain and discomfort where the scar is. Is it possible that it is still healing or is this something I should be seen for?

As a surgeon who does FUT, I generally would want to examine your scar and see exactly what is bothering you. There are many types of pain from scars, so there is no substitute for a good examination
