Hormone Replacement Pellet Therapy


Hormone pellet therapy, also referred to as pellet therapy, is a form of hormone therapy (HRT) where hormone pellets are injected beneath the skin to restore hormonal equilibrium. To guarantee the success of the treatment and decrease the likelihood of negative consequences, it is important to follow appropriate post-treatment protocols. The following are post-treatment instructions for pellet therapy:

Rest and Recovery: After the pellet insertion, take it easy for the rest of the day. Avoid strenuous physical activity or heavy lifting.

Compression Bandage: Your healthcare provider may apply a compression bandage or tape over the insertion site. Leave this bandage in place for the recommended duration.

Avoid Wetting the Area: Keep the insertion site dry for at least 24 to 48 hours. During this time, you should avoid taking hot baths, soaking in hot tubs, or swimming.

Pain Management: Any discomfort or soreness at the insertion site should be treated with over-the-counter pain relievers, such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen. Follow the recommended dosage instructions.

Avoid Scratching or Touching: Refrain from scratching, touching, or massaging the insertion site to prevent infection or displacement of the pellets.

Normal Activities: You can typically resume any of your normal activities within a day or two, but refrain from doing strenuous exercises or heavy lifting for at least a week.

Follow-Up Appointments: Attend any of your scheduled follow-up appointments with your healthcare provider. They will assess your hormone levels and determine if any adjustments are needed.

Monitor for Infection: Monitor the insertion site for any abnormal signs of infection, including redness, swelling, increased pain, or discharge. Contact your healthcare provider immediately if any concerning symptoms appear.

Hormone Symptom Monitoring: Pay attention to changes in your hormone-related symptoms, such as mood, energy, sleep patterns, and libido. It may take a few weeks to months to notice significant improvements.

Hormone Replacement Medications: If you were previously taking hormone replacement medications, continue taking them as prescribed by your healthcare provider until they advise otherwise. 

Sun Protection: Protect your skin from direct sunlight, especially if the insertion site is exposed. Use sunscreen and wear protective clothing if necessary. 

Report Any Concerns: If you experience unexpected side effects, allergic reactions, or any concerning symptoms, contact your healthcare provider immediately.

Hormone Level Monitoring: Your healthcare provider will monitor your hormone levels regularly to determine when it’s time for the next pellet insertion.

Be Patient: Hormone pellet therapy may take some time to reach its full effect. Be patient and discuss your progress and any concerns with your healthcare provider. It’s crucial to maintain open communication with your healthcare provider during and after pellet therapy. They can provide personalized guidance, monitor your progress, and make adjustments to your hormone therapy plan as needed. Proper post-care is essential to achieving the desired hormonal balance and symptom relief.

Keloid SRT Radiation


Dressing and Wound Care: Your provider will give you instructions for dressing changes and wound care. Follow these instructions carefully. Keep the treated area clean and dry. Avoid applying creams, ointments, or lotions unless directed by your healthcare provider. Avoid scrubbing or rubbing the treated area.

Pain Management: You may experience some discomfort or pain at the treatment site. Your healthcare provider can provide pain relief through over-the-counter or prescription medications. Follow the recommended dosage instructions.

Skin Protection: To ensure the effectiveness of SRT treatment, it is important to shield the treated area from direct sunlight and UV exposure for at least six months to a year. This can be accomplished by wearing loose-fitting clothing, using a wide-brimmed hat, and applying a high SPF broad-spectrum sunscreen when going outside.

Avoid Irritants: Avoid using perfumed or alcohol-based products on the treated area(s) as they can irritate the skin. Stick to mild, fragrance-free skincare products.

Follow-Up Appointments: Make sure to go to all your scheduled follow-up appointments with your healthcare provider. This will help you monitor the progress of your keloid and assess the response to treatment.

Keloid Management: Continue with any additional keloid management strategies recommended by your healthcare provider, such as silicone gel sheets or pressure dressings.

Patience and Expectations: Understand that results from SRT for keloid treatment may take several months to become noticeable. Be patient and maintain a positive outlook during the healing process.

Avoid Smoking and Alcohol: If you smoke, consider quitting, as smoking can impede the healing process. Limit or avoid any alcohol consumption, as it may interfere with healing. 

Report Any Concerns: If you notice any unusual changes in the treated area, such as increased redness, swelling, drainage, infection, or any other unusual changes, get in touch with your healthcare provider as soon as possible.

Scar Massage (if recommended): Some healthcare providers recommend scar massage to help improve the appearance and texture of the treated area. If recommended, follow the massage techniques provided by your provider.

Emotional Support: Seek emotional support if needed, as coping with keloids and their treatment can be challenging. Support groups or counseling may be beneficial. Throughout your keloid treatment and recovery, communication with your healthcare provider is essential. This can provide you with personalized guidance and address any concerns you may have. Remember that keloid treatment is a gradual process, and results may vary from person to person. Adhering to these post-care instructions will help optimize your recovery and minimize potential complications.

Pain Management: Take prescribed pain medications or over-the-counter pain relievers according to your surgeon’s instructions. Don’t wait until the pain becomes severe before taking pain medication.

Gradual Resumption of Activities: Follow your surgeon’s guidance regarding when you can resume light activities and work. It is recommended avoiding strenuous activity and heavy lifting for a few weeks.

Compression Massages (if recommended): Some surgeons recommend gentle massages to help reduce swelling and promote smoother contours. If recommended, follow the massage techniques provided by your surgeon.

Sun Protection: Protect the treated areas from direct sunlight to avoid post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Protect yourself from the sun if you must be outside. 

Avoid Smoking and Alcohol: If you smoke, refrain from smoking during the recovery period, as smoking can impair healing. Limit or avoid alcohol consumption as well.

Follow-Up Appointments: Attend all scheduled follow-up appointments with your surgeon for wound assessment and to ensure you are healing properly.

Be Patient: Understand that it may take several weeks to months to see the final results of your liposuction. Be patient and allow your body to heal naturally. Remember that individual healing experiences can vary, so it’s essential to communicate with your surgeon about any concerns or questions that you may have. Following these post-care instructions diligently will help you achieve the best possible outcome from your liposuction procedure.
