I'll be 3 weeks post OP tomorrow and my incision glue is still on. I've tag it should only stay like a week. Should I do something to take it off at this point? It is starting to peel at the edges a little.

I wiped mine with a wet wash cloth and then gently pulled it off at 3 weeks. Incision should be well closed by now.

I was told to just let it come off on its own. It took about four weeks.

It's normal for surgical glue or steri-strips to take more than a week. I think it took nearly a month for mine to be completely off!

Do not "pick" or "pull" at the frayed edges. Simply trim them with a pair of clean scissors (like cuticle scissors if you have them).

I had a surgery that used it this past summer - it stays around forever, and by “forever” I mean weeks. Just leave it until it drys up and flakes off naturally as you’re toweling off, getting dressed etc. At a certain point only little bits were left and I felt confident picking them off, but not the parts over the incision.

      OMG! My time is quickly approaching! I can't believe in 5 days, my life will be changed forever (for the better!). I have thought about this surgery for years, but kept telling myself I didn't need it. Now that I can view it as a tool and not a solution, I realize I do need this tool. This tool will not only help me physically, but mentally as well!

      Getting close - 196 lbs as of this week.  Goal is 195.  Actually, I'm thinking of adjusting my goal.  I'd like to get down to 185 to get rid of this scraggly belly jiggle, then try to build back up to 200 with muscle instead.

      I’m a complete novice on forums but I think my experience I’ve had so far following a gastric balloon insertion will be interesting to someone…
      I had my obera 365 inserted on 31/08/21.
