Common Questions and Answers about Laser scar toronto


Avatar m tn I live in toronto ontario canada and a little while ago i was looking into having a scar revision done on a old scar on my forehead by a doctor in Texas (due to his experience with african american patients). So after seeing my photos during the online consultation he recommended that rather than pursue the revision surgery that i go about trying to flatten the scar with 5fu injections instead under the practice of a doctor locally.
136956 tn?1425609872 In 2007 when I was finally Diagnosed with Stage IV Endometriosis I wasn’t expecting anything but “a diagnosis”. When I spoke to the attendee after my surgery she said that there was massive scar tissue from a previous bowel surgery I had when I was seven years old. It had worked its way all the way up to under my ribcage. It took an hour to just cut that all down and that was just part of my Endo surgery. My entire pelvis was frozen solid with adhesions.
Avatar n tn I would firstly try Bio-oil or Cocoa Butter scar cream. There is also a product called Dermatix which is more expensive. Some laser surgey clinics now claim to be able to treat all skin colors, even darker complexions so check that out too.
9011761 tn?1401175740 Acne treatment can be as easy as using products that contain salisylic acid or benzerol peroxide in them (try both, everyone's skin will react differently but as for me salisylic acid works best). Sometimes hydrocortisone cream is prescribed to treat it, the cream thins the skin and takes away redness but isn't always very effective. Then there is the complicated pricey side that the dermatologist handles.
Avatar f tn If you had laser not excision then it is very possible that you have a ton of scar tissue and laser causes more scar tissue form that is why excision is the GOLD Standard. I want you to register with CEC (Centre of Endometrisis Care) in Georgia on their website. I will message you the link. Take this as your first step, this is what I recommend to anyone even if they don't live in Georgia Dr.
Avatar f tn Interesting enough they found a giant cell lesion on my bladder flap which is carbon residue from my first surgery when laser was used. However laser had to be used for that area because excision couldn't. So there are side effects of the laser and yes Endometriosis will grow back but if you excise it all out the chances are a lot less and will not come back as severe.
5121963 tn?1363908857 I had resent surgery because of scar tissue causing a bowel obstruction and there was only superficial Endometriosis there. Was this your first surgery? Did they do excision or laser? The reason I ask is because Excision is the best method. When speaking to Dr.Redwine who is a retired Endo specialist he said no matter what hormones you go on it will not stop the growth period. So that made me think about even being on the pill.
Avatar f tn Not sure what the plan is other than the cataract doctor told me he'll use a YAG laser in 3 months to try to clear up the scar tissue on the capsule that holds my new lens and I see the retinal doctor 8/3. Last time I was there a month ago, he told me I've developed a macular pucker and that is why I have some bend to straight lines in my vision. He said he wanted to see how my vision was after the cataract was out before we talked about possible treatment for the pucker.

Avatar n tn 9 and surgery on Aug.16. They are going to try Laser Laparoscopic ,possible Laparotomy , ovarian eystectomy , possible ouphorectomy . What are the recovery times for these procedures ? I am a single Mom of 4 and work full time standing on my feet in 1 spot for 8 hrs. I have been put under a few times before ,but this time i guess I am freaked out !!!!!! I am going through alot of tests for my heart ,actually the artery test is the 1 that showed that something was on my ovary .
Avatar n tn After child birth I have a developed a skin tag at the opening of rectum from pushing and straining to push out my baby. Yes, it is called a skin tag - bigger ones are called hemorrhoids. So, essentially, this is a "post hemorrhoid" condition. The appearing of my skin tag is small, nontheless unsightly and somewhat bothersome when cleaning after a bowel movement. And I would like to have it surgically removed as I do not know of anything else that can be done to remove it.
Avatar f tn My mom had something similar and went in to have it removed. She has a tiny scar, but is glad it is gone. I don't know what caused it. Her procedure was outpatient, so she went home the same day.
Avatar n tn It is now three weeks since the op and I can at least move around more, no longer doing an impression of a ladybird on its back trying to get up... The main scar is still sore on the inside and by later in the day I get pain down the left side, still have the shelf overhanging which hoping with time and eventually some exercise will go, still quite bloated but this comes and goes seems to get worse later in the day. Hormones have been all over the place as well.
Avatar f tn So I went to the surgeon and it costs $2500 + tax and I'm in Toronto Canada so the tax is quite a bit. I plan on getting the surgery done before July or else I will have to pay more tax cuz of the new HST tax. He told me he doesn't see it as anything extreme but of course I would but he said ge sees what I am talking about.
940391 tn?1255758976 Well your 16 mm nodule is probably nothing but old scar tissue - but I agree with you the anxiety awaiting for the results is just terrible!!! Most of these nodules are NOT cancerous........ but just the thought about the test is enough to cause a panic attack! Don't understand what type of pain your having - be a bit more specific. Where is your dull pain?
Avatar n tn welcome to my life! it's been 19years of my coughing and clearing my throat. i've been to so many "specialists" - the last one at womens college hospital in toronto, who's exact words were "f*** if i know" what it is. lovely i dont know where else to turn. my doctor has referred me back to him. i see people have gone to the cleveland clinic and may clinics and still nothing. what do we do it's hard to meet people when you cough throughout every sentence.
