My Scoliosis Scar

I know alot of people are really interested in what their scoliosis scar will look like post surgery so I thought I'd share mine with you through the different stages of recovery.

Here is my scoliosis scar about 2 weeks post op after I first removed my dressing. I remember being shocked (and pleased!) at how thin and neat the scar was.

As you can see it's faded nicely and you can hardly see it now! I thought it would be alot more noticeable before I had the surgery.

A tip:
Bio Oil can be really helpful for improving the appearance of your scar. I use it on my scar and I think it really does help. Although I would say wait until the scar has healed fully before using it :-)
