Ever since I traded my ‘bump for a scar’ and began posting updates my recovery from the ORIF surgery performed on my broken clavicle, I’ve received numerous emails. Some offering advice, a few who’ve gone through the same experience, and others asking questions. The one question I’ve been asked the most is – what does the scar look like? and how prominent is it?
At 5 months post surgery, the scar really isn’t that noticeable, though it’s been like that for a while…i just haven’t had a chance to post. I also rubbed on Bio Oil everyday for maybe the first couple of months to help reduce its appearance. It’s hard to say if it really helped or not since scars naturally do fade over time anyways, but I am very happy with what i see (or don’t see). Also, since my scar follows the contour of the clavicle, I find it doesn’t stand out as much. Plus, it might even look cool and be good segue into a conversation at a party 😉
I will try to post pics when i get a chance….
