Re: Steristrips

My BCN peeled mine off 10 days after op. As long as it all looks ok you could have a go and stop if it pulls or is still open.

Steristrips

I'm 2weeks post op WLE and SLNB steristrips are still in place although peeling off around the edges over what I think is the actual scar site still stuck can I soak these off in the bath or shower? I can't remember what my bc nurse said don't really want to ring her with what I consider a trivial problem and wondered if any of you lovely ladies have any experience of this thank you xx
