We heard from Patti at 2 am this morning. She reassured me that what I described didn’t nessecarilly indicate infection. It is possible that the redness is caused by a sensitivity to the tape and the yellow, smelly discharge could just be my body ridding itself of old matter.
What she had me do was, remove the tape, take a shower to wash off the area, pat it dry and leave it open to the air so that it will dry out. Since it’s partially in the crease under my right breast I’m not sure how well this plan is going to work.
I’m deferring to the professionals though. I am to call the office later this afternoon and report on the results of her instructions.
I’ll report here as I have information.
