I just had my 2nd C-sect on Feb. 10th. The 1st time they put this "rubber cement" type stuff on me to close the wound and it took FOREVER to get off. This time they used staples, and took them out the day I was released, and replaced the staples with pieces of tape. Is it OK for me to remove these??
I only ask because I remember during the C-sect, my doc joking with the others that another patient of hers had left on the tape until the 1st follow up appointment (something I would do, they didn't tell me when it was OK to remove or IF it was even OK to remove) and she was kind of suprised that she had left it on that long. At least I *THINK* this is what they were talking about... the drugs they gave me in the O.R. made me kind of loopy & I'm not sure the tape is what they were talking about or not. Anyway, my follow up is tomorrow and I will be embarassed because I was joking WITH her in the O.R. about it, and here I am with the tape still on. Is it OK to remove??
