Scar after ICD removal?
I just had my ICD removed entirely and it looks like the scar is going to be a pretty gnarly, raised hypertrophic/keloid type. It was already red and very uncomfortable for most of the past 14 months I've had it in, but it looks like it's about to be a lot worse, considering they went in directly through the old scar to remove it.
Does anyody have any experience with this and what I can expect? And what I can do to fix it once it heals/let it heal the best way it possibly can? I'm a single, 33 year old guy, so I guess I'm pretty sensitive to the way this is going to look...but, it is what it is.
Anyway, any advice or similar experiences would be great to hear and very much appreciated. Thank you all in advance.
