I'm normally not this gross. Or dumb.

Okay, so way back when, I posed this question to you fine folk.

And lookie here, I actually got my gallbladder taken out 1 week ago.

(I'm so much better now with that stoopid thing gone, I can eat! Woo.)

Okay, so now the post-op instruction sheet said that I can take my bandages off after 48 hours and shower. But I was to leave the white steri-strips on.

So that's what I did.

And I haven't removed the steri-strips yet. It's been 1 week exactly and seriously, these strips are looking funky and nasty. Like REALLY old bandaids? With all the sticky stuff turning black and shit?
(I've been showering and drying and all.)

So should I remove them?
Wait until my follow-up appointment? (It's tomorrow.)
The trouble with waiting is, well, what if I was supposed to remove them and like I go there and the surgeon is all, "What the hell, lady?"
But what if I remove them tonight and I wasn't supposed to?

I don't know why I didn't just call the dude last week.
I'm lame.

What to do?
