Has anyone used Dermabond? I thought the doc said I'd have stitches and then Dermabond on top but from reading about Dermabond it is used instead of stitches. I do remember the doc saying something about not having to worry about something to do with stitches...so maybe I misunderstood him when it came to Dermabond on top of stitches.
So...anything you know/heard/experienced with Dermabond? I know I'll get to shower from Day 1.
I am a labor and delivery nurse and we use dermabond all the time for our cesarean section incision. The docs I work with say they make the best scars they have ever seen. They are great in the surgical setting. I don't like them being used so much in the ER, but in surgery they are really nice. I think the patients experience less pulling on the incision than they do when there are staples etc.
