Good morning all,
This is now day 10 post op. 2 questions have emerged.
1-Have developed an itchy rash around the white medicated honey combed shape part of bandage. I peeled it away and air felt great. Hours later, rash still there. Put hydrocortisone 10 on it and then it started oozing.
I cut the adhesive part off or up to the honeycombed medicated mesh part.
Got the hydrocortisone meds off with rubbing alcohol and let it dry. For bed last night I put non stick gauze on it and put rolled up med tape on it for the night
So , here I am,Sunday am and
need to get this addressed today if possible.
The itch drives me nuts.
2- if I am to excersize today and push on the knee,:
a- am I going to open any stitches? and or -b) does the adhesive part of bandadge hold it all in place for the stretching and pushing that I put into it? Last thing I want to do is cut off all adhesive for the itchiness and then set myself backwards and open stitches. Anyone know about this? Thank you
