When home health care removed my staples the lower portion of my incision was “gaping” enough that she took pictures and sent them to my surgeon before applying the steri strips. His nurse said it looked ok so she put a double layer on the questionable area. I felt just like you do: what if I pull this open? Well bending didn’t hurt it a bit and the strips allowed enough air to get to the wound that it healed very quickly. I’m very pleased with how my scar looks!
