Bandage day

8AM - New bandage day
My post-operative instructions read:
"Keep the initial bandage in place and wound completely dry for two days.  Once you remove the initial pressure bandage, the wound should be kept emolliated with ointment several times daily.  You may use Polysporin Ointment.  The wound should then be covered with a dressing such as Band-aid non-stick gauze secured with paper tape."

Would you like to see before and after pics?   Hmmmmm?

Note: The brown areas in front of the wound are where pre-cancers were removed by freezing with liquid nitrogen.  These brown spots will soon heal and go away.
