Recovery froms stitches/surgery

Had some minor surgery on my hand the other day, they removed a tumor from my left palm that was about the size of a marble (took me three years to grow that mother fucker), and as a result I have 10 stitches and a "no-exercising until further notice" standing order from the doc. how can I speed recovery from this? traumeel? neosporin? DMSO?

As it stands, i'm changing out the dressing every 24 hours and keeping it clean and wrapped. got any voodoo witch doctor health food store cures for me to help speed things up?

traumeel has done me well for stitched wounds... I usually take a few of the pills, as well as the cream on the wound

Vitamin C w/ bioflavinoids enhances collagen formation and repair.

I had a benign myxoid neurofribroma removed from my left hand when I was 21. I ended up finding some "missed" stitches about 4 years later. Amateur bathroom surgery = not a lot of fun.

so I should eat oranges? or is there a pill/gel you recommend? Did you really have somebody remove it in home?

You can probably just supplement with regular vitamin C; I remember reading about this ages ago, it could have even been from L. Pauling's work.

Yeah I had someone remove the rogue stitches at home---me. A sharp knife with a fine point, a needle, and some rubbing alcohol were the tools on hand.

I had the stitches taken out at the physician's office, but some were missed, and healed over. Eventually they work their way to the surface. It's actually the second time it's happened; the first time, I crushed my 2nd and 3rd fingers while working on a remote oil rig, and had a doc attempt to stitch them back together. Some of the stitches were deep, and I waited too long to get them out, and ended up finding a couple a year later.

Vitamin C definitely- post skin graft (both times) it has done wonders for both the donor site skin regeneration and for the skin graft maturity.

Fish Oil, a multi and greens+ are the only other things I take right now. I think the Fish oil has helped too with the skin, but since you're not recovering from skin grafts, i wouldn't worry.

I thought you meant you removed the myxoid neurofribroma and stitched yourself up at home. HA! that's TOTALLY different. I've actually never had stitches removed at the doctor's office before, both times I've gotten stitches the removal has been in a bathroom at home.

Alright, I'm going to the health food store.
