Calling All Top Surgery Participants:

When did you pull off the surgical tape on the incisions?  Dr. Medalie’s nurse told me they would start to fall off a little within a few days after the drains were removed (and they do pucker quite a bit in the shower) and that I should help them off and pull a bit.  The ends are starting to curl off my skin, and the are buckled throughout, but still pretty adhered.

My question: about how long after your surgery did you tug the ol’ surgical tape off the incision lines?

Be nice to yourselves,
Your Pal Eli

  1. About… well, now. So, 18 days post op. They started to fall off a little by 12-14 days, but didn’t fully come off until now. I just let them do their own thing and decide to fall of when they wanted to. Less hassle and hurt that way.
