I gals

I'm 8 days post op and came to change my tape today. There was a bit of a scab and dried up blood on the tape. It hurt like hell to take the tape off as it pulled so much on my incisions.

as I was patting it dry to apply the new tape I noticed a small amont of yellowish discharge coming out of the incision where it hasn't completely closed up yet. Is this normal or is this discharge a sign of an impending infection?

Ok, I spoke to the reception girl and she says it"s normal and uou actually want that stuff to come out and not stay in there, but whay the"d be concerned about is bright red blood and chanves of me seeing that at this stage is highly unlikely.

She did say though to leave it taped up and not change the tapes for another 3 days to give it time to close up.

Lets hope it's closed up by then.
