How long did it take for your steri strips to fall off? I'm 14 days post op today and one of them just came off. Not really sure if that's normal or not and whether I should call my doctor or put a bandaid on it or something. All my doctor said is that they'll start to come off by themselves at 7-10 days and would stay on for a while.

i have no idea what those are lol. i had like glue spots on me that covered my holes and cut in my belly button. i could only leave them alone for about 4 days and so had to remind me my guts would fall out haha to make me stop picking at them. i have ocd issues with things on my body. anyways id say they were gone in a week or so.

I don't really know how to explain them but they look like gauze strips and they're so sticky you'd think they had super glue keeping them in place.
Was your incisions completely healed when they came off. This one is slightly raised and red (it's not painful, just has a bump like most scars).

oh yeah they were nice and fused together. after about 2 weeks i had some string work it sway out and i of course tugged on it and so freaked out but i felt like it was healed. just itchy and the stupid stitch didnt disolve in that one spot. i was sore for a while though. like deep down. it took about 3 weeks for my muscles to feel normal.
