Getting the surgerical tape off
I had a DMX 2 with immediate reconstruction 2 weeks ago. Drains were out after a week. Surgeon said i can remove the tape that is running on top of the incisions which are from my nipples down to the base of the breast and also along the whole base, sort of like an anchor design. The surgeon would have removed the tape himself but it is still on real tight, not at all close to falling off on it's own, and he did not want it to hurt. He suggested i start taking longer showers to help it loosen (I was limited to 3 minute showers before). I took a longer shower today and it's still not budging, started to pull the ends but I'm scared that i might be pulling the incision open. He said I would not be but it still worries me. I'm going to shower longer for the next few days and see if that helps. Does anyone have any experience with this? I dont want to use alcohol because its right on the incision. I was thinking about coconut oil.
