Figured I'd throw it out there....can't get enough opinions! I just had some mighty big knee surgery, and the surgeon did a lovely job of putting me back together, and I'd like to keep it that way. I've been looking at various things and ideas, but the main thing is I generally scar badly (keloids etc), and I want to avoid that if possible. Right now I have internal sutures and the mass steristrips (and a immobilizer on). I did FINALLY get a shower today, some gentle soap, rinse and pat dry, no steristrips came off. I've read things like putting neosporin on daily, vitamin E etc, and most of the scar care things out there call for use AFTER there is a scar - like 3-6 months after the injury/surgery. What can I do now that will help? Stupid knees If this surgery works, I get to look forward to having the other knee redone as well. Among other issues, my kneecaps live about an inch or more higher than they are supposed to be.
