2nd ASCT - Day 55 - July 12 2012

By the time I got back to Greeley, Colorado after all my tests at UCH, the dressing over my bone marrow biopsy was itching INTENSELY.  I took my own Durapore Silk Tape for the dressing since I'm allergic to almost all adhesives. As you can see, the nurse practitioner applied it liberally.
I was supposed to leave the dressing on for 24 hours, but I had Jani carefully peel it off tonight because I just couldn't take the ITCHING. So, I guess I'm allergic to silk tape now TOO.
Jani replaced the dressing with a piece of telfa non-stick dressing and a Tegaderm cover to hold it down.
