Hello all. I’d like to get your opinions on scar treatments. I had my gall bladder removed a year ago and have very unattractive keloid scars from it. A couple of them are painfull. I visited the surgeon yesterday because one of them was giving me quite a bit of pain a few days ago, and he said that if they look like that now, they’re always going to look like that. Sigh. I’m a bellydancer, so having these really unattractive scars on my belly has been a real problem for me as far as self esteem and confidence, etc in addition to the discomfort.. Anyway, I’m wondering if anyone with EDS has had good results from any of the scar creams or treatments? I read that silicone based gels are the most effective. Any thoughts?
