I was allowed to take the tape off today to get a good look at the incision. I am really happy with how it looks. However, I do feel a bit like Frankenstein. It literally looks like I was cut in half and pasted back together. The top doesn't match the bottom, as they are different colors of skin and the skin marks don't match.
The incision is completely healed. So I will begin moisturizing like crazy. It is supposed to help the scar settle in and fade. The info from the doctor's office recommended using cocoa butter. So that's what I will be using during the day. For the night, I will be putting on a thick layer of Vaseline on. I read several studies on the net that Vaseline works just as well - if not better - the expensive scar cream like Mederma.
