My Surgery Story
I was diagnosed with Graves' disease during my fourth pregnancy...was on the highest dose of medications possible and it just wasn't working. So at 14 weeks pregnant I underwent an open incision total thyroidectomy.
About Your Scar
My surgeon was wonderful! You could see the scar a few months after surgery but it was not very noticeable at all...I used vitamin E oil on it as well. At first people were concerned and would comment on it but I didn't mind to tell them all about it. Today, there's hardly anything there.
- Vitamin E oil is always a good thing
- Don't sweat the scar even if it's noticeable
- You have a story to tell, tell it! :)
