Well what a challenging few days ........ i have had a bad reaction to the dressings and can you imagine how hard it is to not scratch ...... i ended up back at the hospital because my skin looks like i have had a kettle full of hot water pored on me.........ouch........ also a bit of infection so now i am wraped up like a turkey in a big bandage ...... hopefully now it will all settle down off today to the surgeon to get my results so i know where we go from here ......cross your fingers that he got it all and that surrounding tissue is clear

    HI Shaz, How did you go with the surgeon? Hope they got it all.

    I also found out the hard way with allergic reactions to all dressings. I was covered in blisters and the riped half my skin off when they removed the dressings. They got infected too and man was that fun. I now have NO DRESSINGS on my medical records. Even Micropore tape is no good. It was worse and took longer to heal than the mastectomy did.

    Well I know now.

    Let us know how you got on and how you are going? We are like sisters here.

    Take Care Xoxox
