I had a TT on 12/18/07 (alittle over a month ago) and there are some days where it looks really good and some days (like today) that it looks very red. There is also one part where 2 little pieces of something are sticking out - I am assuming they are the stitches. I thought they would have dissolved by now.
I am using the Curad Scar Therapy strips and I feel they are working because the scar seems to be healing nicely ;)
My daughter had to have a stitch removed after surgery a month or so due to the fact it didnt come out on it's own.
Be sure it comes out if you can. I tried the curad scar therapy and it made it red and uncomfortable.
I will bring her back in to be sure all is ok w/her surgeon. May be a keloid.
Thanks for your feedback. Hope you are doing well.

Your message was very helpful. Thank you so much. Every little thing is so worrisome when it comes to the process of healing from this whole thing. I will be sure she is aware of the Vitimin E and massage. I talked with a plastic surgeon who said massage is the best thing for it too.
Thanks, blessings, denny
