I’m almost exactly 12 months out. I haven’t figured out how to do a pic that isn’t too too whatever 70 old lady scar. . But mine is very thin and much smaller than I imagined it could be. The very top was the last to heal, not in an open way but with aches maybe from the initial top bone cut.
I used mahanaryan oil on my chest areas but not on the incision directly until it seemed healed over. I find that oil really helps generally with muscle and joint areas. If anyone tries it, a little goes a long way and will stain.
The drain tubes were the last to heal as well. I think it’s because they suggest this surgical bra thing that feels good, especially the first 4-6 weeks riding in cars or other things with jostling. But, parts of that or any regular bra are right on the drainage cuts. We need more women surgeons.
