When I had my second surgery after a tendeon injury, I got massages starting on the second day after the surgery. I was really surprised that you could do that with the stutures still in and the wound being so fresh but it healed so perfectly that I can only recommend it. It makes the scar stay small and soft and prevents scar tissue from growing too much.
I keep my fingers, toes and eyes crossed for you, Ziyal
