    Hi , I changed mine on second day after covering them with cling film and having a little shower. Then changed them again on fourth day then took them off ready for stitches coming out on day seven. The one just under and between my breasts was a bad cut and my bra rubbed it so covered it till scab went xx

      My husband is Red Cross , he said they should get air to them mine healed ok but the one just below my breasts was an awkward cut ? Wasn't as tidy as others and scabbed badly so had a cover on it as bra rubbed it. But all ok now. I was sent out of hospital with dressings

    I am 5 days post op. Dressings can be changed on second day and completely come off on 3rd or 4th day. They should have told you that and given you a change of dressings.

    I've changed mine once and am taking them all off tonight when I have a bath.

    Hope you continue to improve.

    Keep in touch

    Love Sarah xx
