Re: Less Post-Op Scar Tissue w/glue?
Evie, when they went in anterior approach several years ago that doc used the glue and I did fine. It was great not having to get staples or stitches pulled later. Of course, the lower layers were stiched with the dissolving type stiches.
The most recent surgery of course, being posterior and running from the upper shoulders to the absolute bottom of my umhhh was stapled because of the stress of just rolling out of bed. The staples came out at 2 1/2 weeks (usually less but I tend to pull apart so he leaves them in a little longer) and steri strips applied. Have never had problems with staples or stitches and while there is a twinge when some are removed, it isn't bad enough to get upset over.
I've never heard that the bond reduces scar tissue, but since scarring is a problem with me, the surgeons used Adcon-L on the back incision and the gel that is produced specifically for abdominal work in the front. Thank goodness they can recall the names because I have to keep looking it up. Hope that helps you.
