okay, I had my open surgery on the 8th which was thursday, it was only a small sinus, so a small wound. They kept me until monday and there was no pain. Of course when they sent me home, I was in a world of pain, everything is bearable except taking out the dressing.... oh my lord, I bawled why for 2 hours trying to take it out in the tub, I like getting in the tub and doing it myself for I know then when it is going to hurt, thats what I have been doing in the hospital too, but since I have come home it has hurt... any advice, it sticks so much to the sides and it is so horrible, it took me an hour to get it out today, after soaking it with water in the shower, putting saline on it and then getting in the bath, I have been put on atasol 30 put it does nothing for me. The packing and cleaning is easy, its just taking out the packing. Any help would be find.
