i had a minor procedeure almost 2 weeks ago now, a ganglion removed from the inside of my wrist. what is really anoying is that im not having the stiches removed untill thursday and i have not been able to swim or do exercise during this time.
my question is, why cant i swim or get stiches wet? its a pain in the arse trying to shower or bath and i usually swim every day of the week, im getting withdrawal symtoms lol.
also, whats the normal activity expected after removal of stiches? anyone know? will i be expected to go back to work within a day of having them out (im a carpenter) so would the skin still be suseptable to tearing for a while? if anyone has any views on this cheers
