One other thing I forgot to mention is that before the surgery and since, the doctor recommended increasing my vitamin c intake and to eat extra protein post surgery to try and reduce the scarring from recurring. He said there is only limited data on this having an impact but he said it wouldn’t hurt to try and push the odds more in favor of reduced scarring since it looked like I had a propensity for that. It did help me mentally too since it was something I could do proactively and feel a little more in control of things. I went to 2000 mg per day of vitamin c and also increased my protein intake with a protein bar, extra nuts and things for the first several months post surgery. Might be something to discuss with the specialist to make sure it would be ok in your case. Good luck!
