I'll Have This Scar for Life—Here's Why I Refuse to Cover It

It kind of made sense. If my neck had a big, gross scar on it, it would be a reflection of the doctor’s work.

I found some comfort in that.

This was back in 2014. At first, I had thought I was dealing with Springtime allergies, but, in fact, all of my symptoms turned out to be thyroid cancer .

I learned I needed two neck surgeries and radiation. The first surgery was to remove the large, 4-centimeter tumor that covered the entire right lobe. My surgeon tried to spare the left lobe since it could still work alone to control my metabolism, heart rate, body temperature, mood and every other important function carried out by a healthy thyroid .

I appreciated his gesture: he was trying to save me from a lifetime of medication. But, pathology from the tumor and right lobe proved I had a follicular variant of papillary carcinoma . I would need to have my neck reopened to remove the left lobe.

Hearing the word “cancer” was the first jolt, but reckoning the surgeon

How long after a surgery can I apply scar cream to fade the scar and what is the best one to use?



As soon as staples or stitches are removed, begin using Vitamin E. You can buy the Vitamin E supplements. Break open the capsules and smear the Vitamin over the scar. It'll heal much faster and look smoother.

after the incision is sealed, no more open gaps exposing your insides. i use neosporine, if you're allergic to ANY antibiotics, even if it's not on the label, DO NOT use it. they are not required to list ALL ingredients and the product does contain

where can one obtain "Dermatis" cream for preventing scar tissue after surgery.?



Bio-oil is the BEST about 9 quid for a pot of this wonder cream from lloyds pharmacy.It is the business,Ive had implants,no scars now!!!


One of the best creams on the market, and in fact its what a lot of hospitals and surgery's recommend is called E45, you can get it from most chemists and supermarkets


vitamin E gel usually does a great job of helping scar tissue heal. I had a dog bite on my face and put vitamin E on it every day, and now you can't even see the scar. You can pick it up at any pharmacy.
