i hate being a wimp. took hand bandage off. had layers upon layers under a stretch bandage. suppose to clean with alcohol and keep dry. how in the world do you get a band-aid around the base of the thumb? they must have cut the bend in the thumb half way around. i managed haphazardly to put bandaids on. took two to cover stitches. i'm not taking them off for the two weeks until i go back to get stitches out!

think that will be okay? won't get infected? i guess i don't put the ice packs directly on the area???

just letting off steam. sorry.

so many out there with really serious health problems than this diddly squat thing.

gads, hate to think what i'd be like if i really got hurt.

    mil gave me some big band-aids that might cut down to fit when she hurt her leg. icing it down as it is swelling. doc ofc said not wear water proof all time, needs air. just worried stitches would pull when taking off bandaid, but so far so good. at least not bleeding or excruicating. (where's spell check when you need it?)

What are we going to do with you? What did your instructions say? There are so many different kinds of bandages. Hopefully you can find one that will not bother you.

    Follow your post-op instructions. They are there for a reason. As for the band-aid situation, maybe some gauze and medical tape? And like your other friends have said, place a towel between the ice pack and your hand. It will help keep your hand dry and it will also help keep the ice pack from being too cold. Hang in there, Courti. Sometimes we all need to @#$%^&*!

    With most ice packs, you need some sort of barrier between the ice and the skin, so bandage or a kitchen towel would be good. Follow the directions and heal up!

    Was the only instructions to clean with alcohol and keep dry? If so, maybe a loose bandage would be ok. The problem with band-aids would be that it would keep the area moist. Maybe better to let it dry out. If you need to put ice packs on it, make sure the ice won't wet the bandage. Hope that helps.
