Nathan is an active father of two who sustained a broken ankle playing rugby for his local side, Leek RUFC. The injury occurred during a training session when was tackled and landed badly causing his ankle to break.
Following consultations with his doctor, he had two rounds of operations including a bone graft and metal plates put in. This meant not only did the original site of the operation have a scar but he also has a sizeable scar on his hip where the bone marrow and bone graft were taken.
The second operation was a success and once his stitches had been removed, Nathan started to use SilDerm Dual Action scar gel.
“I was recommended SilDerm by a friend who explained first hand the benefits of silicon therapy and the importance of quick management.
“As a rugby player I’m not particularly insecure about the scars but the gel has worked wonders making them less red and reducing the swelling”
Nathan continues to use the scar gel on a daily basis as part of his usual shower routine, applying the gel every morning.
