I had removal of infected area yesterday and was left as an open wound and I did not get told much about aftercare. I wonder if anyone could me some info. The pain is quite bearable at the moment which is surprising after all I have read on this
I have been told to get packing and dressings changed every 2 days. Someone else told me previously every day?
One nurse told me not to drive for 2 weeks another one just 48 hours, my insurance company are fine with 48 hours
How long do I have to wait until I am allowed to sit? Is it just if/when it doesn't hurt to do so? They told me not to sit on it for long but did not say how long this has to last for. I can sit fine with no discomfort. I would say the pain is the same as the cyst caused me so I am used to it. I have a medical certificate for 2 weeks currently and would like to go to work after this time but I have an office sit down job but I luckily work from home in the main
They said I can shower but should I leave the dressing on? Would i be best doing this before each visit with the nurse?
How long do we have to wait to have alcohol? I am just thinking of xmas coming up
Sorry for all the questions but I have been given so much conflicting advice from different hospitals, surgeons and nurses
Many thanks for your help in advance
