    TRIGGER THUMB SURGERY POST OP RECOMMENDATIONS

    I had trigger thumb surgery about 15 days ago. The procedure went well and relatively painless. I have however developed hardening of the tissue around the incision site and although I have consulted my physician it seems to be the same. Wait until it will pass one more week. I wanted to ask anyone who might have some insight and has gone thru this before. Should I be placing Vitamin E on the wound site ? There is also something called Scar Away which is silicone based. That is supposed to work very well . I am just wondering what is the best way to deal with this. A friend who is a nurse told me that if it got bad I could ask the doctor to give me a steroidal injection to stave off the scar build up . I have also read some horror stories where one has to have surgery again to remove the scar tissue ? How much time should I wait before I start freaking out. ?
