Cancerous spot not healing??
@mermaid7272 Just wondering if you’ve had any plastic surgery on your nose? How was the whole experience?
Jump to this post
My nose is still healing & still covered by Vaseline & bandage. It looks better than it did at first, thankfully, & the surgeon said perhaps sanding it will help the raised area. He put something in to help the swelling. I would rather have a bump there than a depression, it would look a bit more normal. I think that keeping a surgical site covered & moist is the the best way to keep scarring at a minimum.
Has anyone tried those ointments that are supposed to help eliminate scars?
