ACDF-- when doe the dermabond usually come off

I had 2 level cervical fusion 3 weeks ago and some of the edges have come off but want to get it all off because I have a wedding sat and there is old blood under some of it and doesn't look so wonderful . I only had to wear a soft collar for2 weeks so I won't have that covering it. Just wondering when anyone else's fell off

    My discharge instructions said that they would come off on their own after 2 weeks. I remember some came off on their own, but still some remained. I took a nice hot shower & was able to get the last one off.
    Maybe put a call in to your doctor & ask if it's ok to remove them yourself?
    In my opinion, the longer they stay on, the harder they are to get off?
