Not sure if that will show up as a picture. Anyway.... At my surgical consultation my NS told me that she was going to try to put the screws in just through small holes over where they go, and that she was going to use this water proof glue stuff. So after surgery they told me it went well, the discectomy was able to be performed from the front, and she saw my nerve and said there may be some irritation still because of scar tissue around it. Tested my strength, everything was fine, so on and so forth. When I was being discharged the P.A. told me I could take my bandages off and shower... And I asked about the waterproof glue stuff on my back, and he just said I could take all the bandages off and shower. So when I get home, I take them off and find staples... I showered with my staples uncovered and my stomach has steri strips covering it still. Does that sound right? I wasn't told there was going to be staples... My boyfriend said if they told me I can shower, then I can.. But I just wanted to know if anyone else had the same instructions regarding their incisions with staples.
If that picture doesn't show up, there is a linkhttp://img508.imageshack.us/my.php?image=img3799fs0.jpg
