New Dressing For Incision

Today I am trying out a new dressing for my incision. Hopefully if all goes well I will only have to be taped and untaped 2-3 times a week and not everyday!.
You can't see it under my clothes and can barely fell it through them and I can't feel it on my belly when I move.
I'm all excited there appears to be an end in sight.

still packing but only using Aquasel AG (overlapping slightly onto skin) and no more seasorb filler.
Then a square of dermaflex on top (hence why the overlap of aquasel)

Kia,
The Aquasel worked wonders for me and stoped the Seroma almost over night!

The Dermaflex started it off on the right way, but was not quite right for me.

I now only have 2 very little spots where the staples were (hole from staple pucture) that are still a bit odd and don't seem to want to heal, I can't contact the nurse untill the new year about these, but we are keeping them clean.

I'm so pleased things are healing at long last for you

marian, the dermaflex is a kind of Hydrocollid dressing and the Aquasel is a guaze type that drys a wound out quickly.
Hope this helps define them a bit better for you

this is the duoDERM

  Quote:
DuoDERM® Extra Thin dressing belongs to the Granuflex® range of hydrocolloid dressings. It is a sterile dressing consisting of an inner layer of hydrocolloids contained within an adhesive polymer matrix and an outer layer of polyurethane film. The outer film is impermeable to exudate and micro-organisms. The hydrocolloid component of the dressings interact with wound exudate to produce a cohesive gel which enables removal with little or no damage to newly formed tissue. As DuoDERM® Extra Thin is waterproof, it is possible to bathe or shower with the dressing in position.
and the aquasel (mine includes ionic silver)
  Quote:
It is produced as a textile fibre and presented in the form of a fleece held together by a needle bonding process, and is available both as a `ribbon' for packing cavities, and as a flat non-woven pad for application to larger open wounds.

The dressing absorbs and interacts with wound exudate to form a soft, hydrophilic, gas-permeable gel that traps bacteria and conforms to the contours of the wound whilst providing a micro-environment that is believed to facilitate healing.
