I can only use paper tape I am allergic to all the others. I see my doc on the 27th so the covering one I saw was the 17th so that will be 10 days of the saline dressings, he will be able to guide me from there. I have wound/ostomy site cleanser left from my ostomy so I use that it can be used in a wound. I squirt that around the area at the end of my shower and rinse it off. It is also used for incontinence cleansing. I also bought sterile saline in a can at CVS. It squirts out and it flushes the area clean beofre placing a dressing. After I used that and dried the internal area with qtips and sterile gauze was when it decided to poop. Luckily I had a face cloth under it but it still went in that little valley of my scar down to my underwear. I have my period now too so cramping is pretty bad, I have an ovarian cyst that likes to come and go as it pleases even with the pill. I just ordered some wound care supply samples from hollister, I dont want to try a diff company since I have many allergies to tapes, adhesives etc so I know I dont have reactions to hollister products. Hopefully they wont take too long to come in, my health insurance doesnt cover ostomy or wound care supplies which stinks.
