Okay so I'm 6 weeks to the BIG day, and been reading all kinds of stuff regarding healing progress, I NEED to know does this stuff realy help or is is just bull*$#?......please let me know about your experiences.  Need to know if I realy need to get any of this stuff: ex: Mederma, Bio-Oil, Kelo-cote, vitamine E,  armica montana...etc.....I havent ask my Doc about this stuff cause I kinda guess he would say just let the boddy heal on its own, but if this stuff realy works I want to know.....so post-op beauties let me know, should I or shouldnt I buy this stuff to make my healing progress better...awaiting your comments !!!!!!!

I had BL/BA in July and of course my PS suggested using the expensive scar gel that he sells in his practice. I talked with another PS who said to just use the Mederma scar treatment ($16 at Walmart) My scars seem to be healing well, except for the T incision below my nipple. I had a couple of sutures poking thru, that I continued to pick at, that have left a small scar. Do not pick at them, or remove scabbing! The vertical scar is barely visible. Use plenty of moisturizer on the rest of the breast. I developed some stretch marks right after surgery that I didn't expect but it made sense, since the skin is really stretched tight. Have plenty of pillows available. I made a little cocoon to elevate my head and arms. Ice packs are a must! Good luck to you! It is worth the pain and money. My breast look like they did when I was 18! (I'm 47 now)

I did a lot of research on vitamins, minerals and general diet to aid in healing and followed it to the best of my ablity for the 4 weeks prior (I had BA/Lift 11 days ago). So far I am recovering beautifully but am probably the most amazed by the Arnica Montana! I started taking 4 tabs (sub ling) 4X a day for 5 days before and have continued for the 10 days post.I had a donut lift and sub musc aug and I have NO bruising!! I don't know what else to attribute that to. I didn't even bruise from my IV and I always bruise there. I started most of the supplements based on my own research but it was my doc who prescribed the AM, 2,000 mgs of Vit C and 50 mgs of Zinc pre and post op. It took me 15 yrs to talk myself into this surgery and I nearly backed out all the way up to the point of climbing on the operating table.If I can be of any more help, please just ask. I totally get how scary this can be!

My doc put me in the Intuition Post Op bra (here the link http://www.postopbra.com/ ) It is very comfortable and was designed by 2 women who were going through the process and understood what was needed. I only got one from my doc so I bought the Mirena post surgical for another option. I find them both very supportive and both are front closure which was VERY necessary for me at the very beginning!

thank you MsThomas, I'm realy considering the Arnica Montana, just wondering where I can get this in Canada, I already take Vit C but only 500 a day plus I take 1000 iu of Vit.D and B12 everyday and have been for quite a while now, my Doc didnt recommend anything, no creams no vit, so wondering why would some Doc recommend and others not when this can help ???? I'm realy concern about scaring........
