5 months after ...

Long time since I updated, I'm 5 months after surgery ..
Yesterday I was visiting my surgeon said the scar is slightly darker and brought me back to use after two months I did not use anything to use Dermovate Cream for scars for 3 weeks.
In addition to starting early next month I will start to use silicone sheets for six months .. Next update will be another two and a half or so, I feel again in November after two months of criticism with the use of silicone sheets .. I am optimistic and surgeon kept telling me not to think about the laser option to blur the scar.

Throughout this time I continue to train and shape his gut loads and runs very looking forward to seeing the stomach for another six months or so when the scar is lighter and lower abdomen feeling completely back to me .. added photos .. I'd love comments

21/3/2014 1 year passed ;-)

Hye evrey 1 ... im 7 months didnt update .. so i added some photos ...

Mid-May I remove the inner seam of the abdominal muscles at the moment relatively prominent scar still looks horrible, but every few weeks I feel that improvement is why I am optimistic
