Does Injecting Steroids at Time of Surgery Increase Chance of Necrosis?
I had a tummy tuck and umbilicus scar revision 3.5 weeks ago to remove hypertrophic scars. The doctor injected steroids at time of surgery to reduce scarring. The new surgery bled considerably in the first 24 hours. It was 36 hours before a nurse would see me. I am now seeing a nurse twice a week to check progress. Will more tissue die or is the worst over?
