  • Myectomy Scar

    I'm indecisive about having an ablation or myectomy. Is there a really horrible scar after a myectomy?
    Anyone have an ablation? Good or bad results?
    Thanks

        Tammy,

        As Sarah pointed out do a search for what would be best for you. There are a lot of factors that play a role.
        Regarding the scar. That is also different per person. Are you a person that scars bad, than this scar will also not look good. If you do scar normal/good then you should end up with just a line. There are things you can use to make the scar look better after surgery. Mederma is a good ointment to use and try not to strets the scar to much the first couple of weeks after the operation.
        But again don't let a scar make the decision on how your hart needs to get fixed.

        If you want to ask more questions about the myectomy feel free to PM me. I had mine 7 weeks ago.
