The nurse wasn't much help in giving suggestions on how to cover the scar up except to say to wear alot of scarfs :)
I think you will be OK if you reapply sunscreen as it wears off while you are hanging by the pool or finished swimming.
I'm so happy for you that received benign test results!! YEAH!
Your scar looks great. I'm two months out from TT and my scar is definetly more noticable than that still! It's still much better than I thought it would be, but it's a little redder than yours.
You mentioned your surgeon's nurse recommended covering the scar in summer to keep it out of the sun. I just posted question about this as I'm going to Florida tomorrow for a week and was wondering about sun exposure on the scar. Did the nurse give suggestions on how to cover it up? I'm wondering how you do that when you're swimming and hanging out by the pool?
I'm going to put 55 Neutrogena Broad Spectrum on the scar because ChitChat and another member highly recommended it.
I want to thank everyone for your congrats. I can't say it enough, everyone here is wonderful!!!
Congrats, Your scar is right pretty. So happy for you.
Not using anything yet on my scar. I was so pleasantly surprised to see that it looks so good. As I wrote on KelDC's post, surgeon's nurse recommended silicone gel. She also told me to cover it up in the summer because the sun will darken the scar.
Congrats on the benign results............
WOW - congrats on the great results!!
Your scar is amazing - one week after surgery??? Unreal.... I second Shannon's question - are you using anything on it?
WOOHOO! That is awesome! Congratulations!!!
Um, and your scar looks so GOOD. One week??? Wow. Are you using anything on it?
