I had carpal tunnel release surgery 3rd wk in Nov. 2013. I wanted to know if I can use the Voltaren gel at the surgery site (all healed) to help relieve discomfort and break down scar tissue under the skin. I was prescribed this gel to deeply massage into the scarred tissue on my other hand for the same surgery I had done 1 1/2 yrs ago.
Voltaren gel for use in treatment of scar tissue?

As far as the scar tissue goes, my concern is for the hard lump under the skin. The scar on top of the skin doesn't bother me in the least and is hardly noticeable at all
There are oils for scars. Voltaren is an nsaid for pain. I can't remember the name of the oils but they have them with the bandaids and stuff in pharmacies. My grandaughter had a major scar on her belly from a skin graft after cancer surgery and she used the oils, It is much less evident now.
