Hi where about in the Uk are you Samanthab?.
My surgeon did a very tidy job on me,can barely see my midline scar now and he has been in the same place twice. First to do my ostomy and then to reverse it 12mths ago. 💕

Ah sounds like the same as me !!! I'm currently at st Thomas hospital in Westminster London ! Would be great if you let me know more ! I'm very anxious as I do a lot of promotional work so a bit body reliant 🙈

Can,t help with the surgeon but I,ve had a lot of orthopaedic surgery over the years and got a piece of advice on scarring and how to help with it,comes from a surgeon post surgery and after the stiches,staples are removed massage the area gently with bio-oil it's fantastic.its non prescription and available in any chemist it's also pretty good on burns.

Thank you !! I'm wondering whether compression garnets and prolonged wear of steri strips would help but I guess I can hopefully ask him all that next time I see him , he seemed a little short with me .

I'd love to see the scar mandyk , from what I can tell they always look the best after a few years

Hi I have tried to upload the picture but it is telling me its to big and I can't seem to resize it to fit forum size of arghhh!! I struggle with technology sometimes. I am sorry I will keep trying. 💕
I very tried all sorts to resize but no joy. If you want you can pm me your email address n I'll send it via that. It's the only way I can do it I think. I am sorry to be a pain with my lack of technology and lol ☺
