    Acedentilly pulled off steri strips

    I had my port removed on Friday and took off my dressing this morning but when I pulled it off the steri strips should I put a bandaid or something in it or just leave it

      Iwould put a bandaid or other dressing on it to keep it clean so you don't get an infection. By the way congratulation on getting rid of the port, we all hope you will never need another one!!!!!

      Modern,
      Actually you can buy steri-strips where first aid products or band-aids are sold. Best of luck to you, Carm RN.

      Glad to hear the port is GONE!!! My skin broke out really bad from the steristrips so my doctor removed them. I'd just put a band-aid on it on. Good Luck!!
