I took a shower when I got home from the hospital! The strips WILL stay on, I promise! Just don't scrub them. Don't peel them. Pat your tummy dry.
I am 20 years old.
I'm 5'8" tall.
My highest weight was 444lbs.
I weighed 409 lbs on the day of surgery.
I had the Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy procedure performed on June 1st, 2010.
168 lbs lost since surgery, nine months ago.
***Ticker reflects weight loss since heaviest weight***
i took a shower at the hospital the next day and was told to take one everyday after as normal.steri strips were my nemisis. as edges pull up on them just trim the dges so they arent so uncomfortable.eventually they will fall off but untill then mine itched the whole time grrr. when mine did come off i still had a sore which was at my waist line so i had to put loose band aid on it so it didnt rub on my jeans.
