After Your Operation

There is blood on my bandage.


Most patients get some blood on the bandage. This is normal. Ignore it.

About half of patients will notice that the ice-pack we provide you to put on the wound gets some blood on it. This is common and is perfectly fine. Sometimes blood will seep out from the edge of the wound and get blood on your shirt or pillow case. This is not a problem and should not cause concern.

Dots of blood on the steri-strip. This is completely normal and will not affect healing.
