I had a c1 c2 cervical fusion with bone graft about 3 weeks ago. I have these nasty scabs - they are thick and roundish - almost the size of a flattened pea. One is half falling off. Can I just pick it off? It is grossing me out???? I am guessing this is going to happing with all of these. why the thick round scabs? I was told I had dissovable stitches. Anyone else deal wtih this? Its so itchy too. I just want to scratch them all off aready! I am wearing the Miami J collar all day.
