Laser Therapy Progress: My Scar Is Healing


For someone who loves words, I am at a loss for just the right words to communicate what my heart feels. As a little girl, I prayed for God to heal me because I hated being scarred and stared at. As an adult, my reasons are completely different. I want to continue working so that I can help others, as well as enjoy my life. I know how it feels to be consumed with shame, pain, hopelessness, and depression. I also know how it feels to overcome it all. 
The situation with my elbow and thumb sparked a whole new level of hope for me. God showed me then that He is in control of it all. He heard my prayers as a child. Through the years, He has saw my tears of pain and held me through the darkest of times. Through it all, He would never allow me to give up. At my lowest moments, He would always give me a tiny spark of hope. 

Now He has transformed my hope into healing. A few weeks ago, I got the scar on my arm measured via ultrasound. During that time, several cyst were also discovered around my scar. When I first started receiving laser therapy treatments on my arm, the scar was so tight that my hand was going numb, my rib was coming out of alignment, I had trouble with my shoulder, chest muscles, and my neck hurt. I was having trouble sleeping, and preforming every day tasks. Now weeks later, the pain in my arm is completely gone, and my rib is staying in place. The numbness is gone in my hand and I don't feel the usual muscle knots, I always have. Praise God!

When we compared the measurements yesterday, I was amazed, shocked, and so incredibly grateful! Also there were no cysts. 

Scar measurements:

The pictures on the top are before the laser therapy and the ones on the bottom are after.  The lighting and angles are a little different. Honestly, I didn't realize that I'd get to post before and after pictures or I would have taken more before pictures. 

Every time I look at these results, I can’t help but smile and thank my Lord. He is healing me. The scar that I’ve had since birth is healing. My mind can’t even comprehend how this is going to change my life. For so long, I’ve lived with constant pain. And now I have hope that I can overcome it all. It all happens in God’s timing. Even if this doesn’t give me the level of healing that my heart desires, I have ever confidence in my Lord. He can create something else to help me.
