After the surgery, the nurse asked whether I wanted to clean and dress the wound every day or I wanted the "two-week dressing," which is the one that was supposed to stay on for two weeks. Easy. I chose the latter.
Of course, the two-week dressing came off in about three days, so I was forced to take care of the site myself for the next 11 days. I tried a couple different bandages, all by Band-Aid, which in my experience are the only one that will stick for longer than five minutes. Even so, most of the every-day use Band-Aid bandages fell off and I needed to apply new one two or three times a day.
Finally, I tried "Waterproof Tough Strips," also made by Band-Aid. This is the right one. The only time I had to remove this bandage was to clean the incision site. I can say with certainty, it wouldn't have come off had I not removed it.
All of this begs the question, if the Waterproof Tough Strips won't come off, why not make all Band-Aid products with the same adhesive? I digress.
The ext time you or one of your children need first aid for a "boo-boo" and you need a bandage to stay, Band-Aid Waterproof Tough Strips is the one you want.
