I know this isn't related to any of the spinal issues we all deal with but I need some advice. Monday morning I had a fairly decent sized ganglion cyst removed from the inside of my wrist. I have dissolvable stitches and a 'soft cast' which are to be removed 9th February and then steri-strips and another bandage applied for 7 days after that.
The problem I'm having is I keep getting a cold damp feeling right over the site of the stitches, it's making me think it's bleeding (a fair bit too!) Theres no blood dripping down my hand or arm and there is no blood soaking through the bandage but it's just a weird sensation.
As I'm not due to see the nurse until 9th February I don't know what to do... Help?!
Also does anyone else think 15 days is a long time to not have a dressing changed? The last thing I want is an infection.
