I'm 3 weeks post op and 1 week post staple removal.
I've just removed my dressing and it looks (to me) really healthy.
There were quite a few bits of dried blood that brushed away quite easily, but other than that it looks really good with no redness or scabbing.!
Do I need to put a fresh dressing on? I haven't been told anything about this by the hospital, but looking at my wound, I don't see any point as it looks fine.
Also, when is it safe to have a bath & submerge the knee? Until now, I've been showering with the knee wrapped in cling film to keep it dry.
