      I am not sure about anything that can make it go away, but I call my scars my battle wounds, they are my badges of honor! I carry them with pride that I made it through, and am now happy and healthy!

      Maybe Aloe and Vitamin E cream.

      There is a creme for stretch marks, called Mederma, that might help. It's over the counter.

      My surgeon recommended Mederma; go to their website for a coupon. But everyone else suggests vitamin e oil, which is what I'll be using.

      Cocoa butter and vitamin E cream. CVS has a store brand of vitamin E cream that worked for my thyroidectomy scar. Just keep in mind that the scar will fade and soften over time.

      Rose hip (eglantine) oil or cream helps make your scars invisible, you should give it a try.

      All absorbable natural oils will help. Vitamin E, primrose oil, borage oil, marshmallow, and so forth.

      I have two somewhat faded port scars on right below each collarbone. On the rare occasion someone asks anymore, I tell them now what I told them when the scars were fresh....

      I was camping outside of Las Vegas on a three dog night. The fire I'd built threw off heat and a wolverine came close for comfort. Slowly that animal and I became acquainted and wound up warming each other for the night ... as he left early the next morning, the wolverine raised up on his hindquarters to lick my face and learned his front paws on me as he kissed me good bye. His unintentional claw marks remain indelibly as a reminder of how even enemies can become friends through a long winter night.

      I ran into a dude who told a shark tale basically use a Tall Tale which is perfectly fitted for you.

      Blessings.
