11 Days Later

I saw the nurse last Friday so she could remove my drains, and she said I could take of the plastic adhesive skin bandages on Monday. I didn't, and waited until just now to remove them because I figured a few extra days wouldn't matter. I removed the right bandage and noticed that most of the incision has closed, but the area over the nipple is still open, and a bit leaky. It looks clean and there was only a tiny bit of pus, but still... This worries me a bit. Right now I have it covered with a gauze pad and antiseptic cream, and have an appointment for Tuesday. I haven't touched the left one at all. I don't want two open holes.

If it looks worse tomorrow I'll head up to the medical centre for more proper dressings, and maybe some antibiotics. I feel washed out and tired and have a very slight fever. Infection? Worry? Hypochondria? I'll know more tomorrow.
