Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hi. Dr Rick here. I completed an Internal medicine internship in NYC and have two decades of clinical experience. How can I assist you today?
Can you upload, using the paper clip on your screen, a picture of these strips?
How long ago was your surgery? What was the surgery?
I see that you are offline. I will switch to Q&A format. This format works a lot like 'text messaging' but an email is sent to each of us anytime something is posted to this thread. We can continue to work on your question there..... :)
I'm working on the photo.....
I had lap band surgery. My surgeon said it was okay for the exterior bandage to be removed 2 - 4 days post-op, and those have come off.
Underneath is the so-called steri-strips, I think, that he told me to leave on until the follow-up visit.
I had my surgery one week ago.
