I had a c-section on December 10th and today my final Steri-Strips just fell off. Is that normal?
postpartam question for mama's that had a csection
I had a c/s 12/28 and I finally just peeled off my steri strips last night. they had finally started peeling and they were annoying me, so I went ahead and took them off. The nurse had told me not to soap them, but when I saw the doc, he said I was supposed to be doing that and that most come off by 2 weeks. It's been over 3, so I figured what the heck? :)
With my first c-section my strips started coming off about 2 weeks after I had my staples removed. This go round they only did staples and they didn't use the steri strips after they removed my staples after a week. You should be fully healed though so if all of them aren't off you should be able to take them off yourself.
