    The Dr didn't even give me instructions after the stitches was taken out. So I wore big bandage over it until I saw my primary Dr.who told me to keep it aired out. They took my co pay before I went back now they say I didn't pay it. They are too in a hurry to answer any questions. But have time to collect your money. The Surgery went great though but follow-up is very disappointing.
