Hi all, I do not remember what the horrid assistant said as she was ever so NOT gently applying the steri-strips to my incision. I don't remember how long she said to keep them on. I'm still very bitter over the treatment I received when the staples were removed and the steri-strips were applied, can you tell? I do intend to let my OS know how UN-happy I am with that first post-op visit and my treatment. My question is this: The steri-strips were applied on 09/02/08. At what point is it safe to remove them? Something about "Saturday" keeps ringing a bell, but I'm not sure. Thanks! BTW, my ROM yesterday at PT was 85 flexion, 10.5 extension. Got those numbers combined with tears, but I got them!
