Thanks @Jockette , this forum has been super helpful❤️
You can give me support through my fears when my next eventual surgery comes up.
There's no reason why he couldn't suture or staple your wound closed. You're not allergic to sutures or staples.
I'm not talking about the Coban crepe bandage, which is self-adhesive. Just a plain, sterile gauze dressing, secured with an old-fashioned crepe bandage, would do the trick.
Or he could just spray your sutured wound with a clear, protective dressing and leave it uncovered.
Because of your sensitivities, he just may have to adjust his procedure and preferences.
Using a wound suction would be inappropriate in your case, because of the adhesive dressing that is necessary to make an airtight seal.
Awesome!! You will do great!
Good luck! Best wishes tomorrow
Wishing you a successful surgery! See you on the other side.
Just wanted you to know I'm thinking of you.
