Scar Treatment - can I use both Scar away sheets and palmers oil?

Does anyone know if I can use scaraway sheets say at night and when I'm not using it during the day use the Palmers oil for treatment?  I asked my PS at my last post op about scar treatment and he said "none" they don't work.  I'm really doubting who I chose, he creates this hideous scar on me and when I ask about scar treatment he acts like that, so I'm pretty much on my own for scar treatment.   One more questions, I'm 3 weeks post op tomorrow, my incision is closed and I just have a few scaps in some areas but no open wounds, has anyone started the sheets or oil at this stage?   Any input is greatly appreciated

The Palmer's Oil worked like a charm for me!!!  The key is the firm circular massage to break down the scar tissue.  Mine is totally flat and faded.  I used both the Palmer's and Bio Oil and was very happy with both.

Kim, Did you use it all over your tummy or just your scar? My belly itches and I was wondering about using it under my binder. I am 5 days post op.

How soon can you start massaging?

You can use this on your entire body.  I actually use is as a moisturizer after every shower.

As soon as your incision is completely closed up.  I was able to start at 10 days post op with my doctors blessing.

You will find the Bio oil at either Walgreen's, Target, Walmart and most any pharmacy.
