When Can I Remove The Dressing?

May 14, 2019 | Focus News

We get this question often and #DrDanSays that the main dressing will be removed immediately after surgery by the nursing staff post discharge. Then there is usually a waterproof dressing which looks like contact and it will stay on until your post surgery appointment at which time Dr Dan removes and takes the stitches out. This dressing is waterproof so you can shower normally.
