Scar Tissue – One year after IH Surgery
I had IH surgery by Dr. Goodyear in Philly (7/31/14) and everything is fine. No pain, and no IH related issues. All functions are quite normal. However the scar tissue still feels a bit hard around one inch. Unless I press it, I do not even know it is there. But somedays – may be mornings or when I return home in the evening after work (I am in software and sit nearly 7 hours in chair) – it feels harder and sometimes it feels smoother. But I know the tissue is still hard.
I did ask Dr. G and he said if there is no pain, do not worry about it. My PCP said in the last physical that the cut has turned out to be a keloid and asked me to apply some cream – which may or may not work. I do get itching once in a while and sometimes I have to scratch or touch the area to keep it from itching.
My question(s) :-
1. Can this keloid, or scar tissue cause me trouble in the future?
2. Is there a way to speed up this scar tissue dissolution process? I do not want any “may work,” “you can try” solutions but looking for sure fix it frizzles.
3. Any thoughts why I have this issue? Dr. G said “For most people scar tissue will dissolve but for some, it will remaiin.” Comments?
