I need help. I had my surgey a week and a half ago. It went great. I've just been sleeping mostly on the couch. Anyway I went to see the surgeon today. She removed the stitches, saying they aren't helping much to hold it together. She said it was coming apart and she would have to pack it. So she told me she just put gauze there. She said I'll have to re-pack it twice a day. Now I'm home getting ready to change it. Actually go to a friends house so she can for me, but what exactly does she do. The surgeon said it wasn't bad, that she couldn't put all the gauze in it, but didn't tell me exactly what has to be done. Can someone help? What do I use? How do I do it? Should I shower before applying the new packing? Please help.
