I am not sure if I should have left the dressings off but there is no seepage or anything. The incisions are dry and clean so I don't want to cover them with more gauze.
Only another day before I have the staples removed.
I really don't like the look of my torso! I look like a battle tank! My sister, a nurse, said the gas pumped into me during surgery will take a while to leave. It has to be absorbed by tissues - not just a matter of passing gas!!
