Surgical Wounds - 1 answer
Approximately, two months ago had a brachioplasty. Complications occurred when the incisions opened up. Short story my skin would not hold the sutures. I have to let the wounds heal from the inside out under both arm pits. I have stopped my pain medication. I have been working on strengthening & stretching my arms but I still cleanse & pack the wounds w/gauze 2-3x daily. Should I stay out of work (correctional facility) until the wounds are closed or at least until they don't have to be packed?
