Here are some pictures of my scar at almost 13 weeks after my surgery. I am not quite happy with the amount of scarring that’s developed on my heel, and it’s really not going away. The lower part of my incision wound gets dry and it looks even worse.
At my PT’s recommendation, I’ve bought Mederma creme which is supposed to make the scar look better. I don’t know if it actually works, and it was quite expensive: 20g bottle for $20.
I also bought some Eucerin lotion which I’ll apply after I shower on the dry skin. Let’s hope this works!
Here’s another shot from a different angle, not much prettier. The vertical thin lines (perpendicular to the main incision) are from the stitches.. wondering if it’s the surgeon, or if it’s the way
my body heals..
From a slight distance.. looks slightly better. The incision seems like it’s a bit curved. I am wondering if the surgeon had one of his students make the cut.. (He also teaches at the medical school.. which I wonder if it’s a good thing or a bad thing.)
Well, I am hoping that the scarring will diminish as time goes by. I am also hoping that the protrusion goes away too.
