Acell and radiation wounds
Acell is a great product. It might work, but you need not only healing but a stable scar that doesn't break open. I don't know that Acell could give you that. Furthermore, I have had trouble getting insurance coverage for the product, so it is possible that you would be paying out of pocket.
Talk to your plastic surgeon about this. You'll get an informed opinion customized on your exam.
