Port Scar Painfully Contracting!
rmgreer2 posted:
I've had my port removed and the scar has been revised twice. It is still very painful because the scar is starting to contract again. I've started using Mederma but it has only been a few days. Is there anything I can use that would offer sure results?

I am so sorry that you are encountering this problem. As I have had no experience in this area and this board/exchange is quite slow, may I suggest that you post on the main breast cancer exchange? Hopefully, there you will find more folks and among them more who may have been there/done that and can offer you some good suggestions?

In the meantime, pleasse know you will be in my thoughts that things get better each day.
