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 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.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
