Re: Anyone using Arnica post op for healing
I have taken some arnica tablets in a homeopathic formula. I was taking them at the beginning, slacked off and am now taking them again, so the jury is out.
I had a strange spot next to my incision, and asked the surgeon about it. It looked like the skin was folded or tucked or something. He didn't know what had caused it. He said that sometimes a stitch pulls it wierd. He suggested I rub that area. I have done that, and the spot has smoothed right out and it will not leave a scar from what I can tell. Also, the main scar is less red than intially. I imagine it will settle down in time. Surgical scars are usually quite red and raised for several months anyway.
