Are you thinking about shoulder replacement surgery? If so, you may be wondering what the scar might look like.
I'm happy to share the results of my surgery with you! Everyone heals differently, but these photos below will give you an idea of how someone can heal:
To care for my scar, I massaged vitamin e cream and castor oil (there are also many scar creams on the market with lots of information online) into the scar as soon as it was healed, using as much pressure as I could tolerate.
I also rolled a tennis ball in a clean sock into the scar at least once a day. Elyssa Bourke, DCM, one of the Universal Design Yoga teachers also worked on the scar. Today, only a very small part closest to my elbow is still sensitive and I continue to work on it and heal my body.
