Interesting tidbit from Dark Imperium, which I do recommend as a read.
It was fascinating to read a 40k novel that was advancing lore that had remained mostly static for over 10 years.

In the interests of more spoilers - can you elaborate how he is fully healed?

We all feel different ways about different rules, but if you're traveling between different gaming groups or to tournaments, the only commonality is the rules as they are written. If you can get your opponent to agree with you on house-ruling something then that changes things, but until then all we can do is go by how things are written.

He isnt trapped in the dread but it doesnt say he is healed. Actually doesnt it say his scar burns or itches and how it was annoying to wear armor as it makes the scar sensitive.

Yeah, he might not be at death's door but as I recall he definitely isn't feeling good. There's the scar thing - it's hinted that it's not just a physical scar, it's something like a scar in his spirit or warp-presence or something - and wasn't there something about him having trouble sleeping?

His wounds are spiritual... A wounded soul.
I think the Chaos blade's Scar will never heal, but physically he's not dependant on a suit or apparatus to keep him alive.

Further apologies to everyone, I typed this topic up on my phone hastily in between work meetings. Was excited to discuss this part of the book.

Ishagu, the spoiler title still exists in Amicus Aedes where it was before moving. You might want to fix it before a mob attacks you. :)

“The wound still hurt. Primarchs did not scar easily, but Fulgrim had left him a fine one. A thick rope of a scar crossed his throat from side to side. Slightly off true, it sloped just enough for the raised end to catch annoyingly on his armour seals, no matter how many times he had them adjusted.”
 
Excerpt From: Guy Haley. “Dark Imperium.” iBooks. 
 
Other than that he seems fine. He wears regular regal robes when he's out of combat. Also, apparently he doesn't need to sleep anymore.

This is something I read a few days ago in the novel, but concerning the scene around this moment, I wasn't left with the impression that he had completely healed. While it doesn't say the scar is actively affecting him the descriptions seem to indicate fatigue on the Primarch. He doesn't know why, but he doesn't sleep... at all anymore. They note the medical staff don't even understand his physiology as well as Cawl... Creepy Cawl. He knows a little too much.

 

His hair has thinned, his face has lines. This may mean absolutely nothing though.

 

For comparison there was a HH novel where Horus was in a cave the Emperor wiped their minds of.... he entered something in the cave, transported to the warp where he fought and slew tons of Daemon armies. This all happened within hours to the Mournival (whatever it's called) but Horus reappeared and was shocked to see them all waiting for him... it was thousands of years for him.

 

The point is he was unharmed but did emerge aged, grey haired, lined.

 

So we know Primarchs can show age that perhaps is all Guilliman is showing... 10,000 years could be 10 years of human aging factored in to his appearance/ailments.

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

What's the life support on his suit for then? Does he have it removed or is it just a backup system?
