questions about the healing process

Postby kaymccon12 » Tue Aug 13, 2013 5:41 am

I am 3 weeks post op now and I was wondering when the scabs will start to come off the back of my ears? can anyone remember when they started to look a bit more normal? swelling is down and some stiches still in there but still scabbing present.

I had 0 scabbing just redness and I packed the back of my ears with this cream (antibiotic) for the first week or so. Everything healed quick, was just swelling/redness that took a bit.

I am well over a year now and I'd saw they feel "stiff". You will get some odd sensations (like spasms, I did) was probably the tissue mending.

If you have scabbing should be no more than 2-3 weeks I would think

I would expect the scabbing to last around 3 week or a month. Any update ?
