Hello All,
 
Those of you who have had a resection, what are you using to make that scar look a bit more appealing? I have been trying a prescribed steroid cream but not much effect. I have tried breaking Vitamin E capsules and rubbing the oil but not much help either.
 
Thanks!

I never put anything on it to make it look better but I would just rub the scar frequently and that softend it up so that it was not so rigid and raised. Still looks bad but feels better.

I used Vitamin E. It looks pretty good.

I used the Vitamin E and it did help some. However, they left my incision pretty open due to potential infections so mine's still pretty wicked.
I put cocoa butter on my galbladder scars and it didn't do much of anything.

I've heard that rubbing scars using both hands in opposing directions helps.

Vitamin E oil, twice a day, but it takes time. Nothing works quickly on scars.
