Can someone tell me how long these Steri Strips will stay on my neck incision?

My surgeon told me to take mine off after 10 days.  However, they would have stayed on much longer, as they took much "persuasion" to get off.

I was told to snip away the edges as they peel up.   I did have to pull some off but the snipping made it easier.  Within a week they were pretty much all off. .

I think mine were on for about 10-11 days.. The edges started lifting sooner but I left them on until it was apparent they were ready to go.  That goes for both the ones I had where my thyroid used to be, AND the ones I had where my gallbladder was removed!

Mine were on one week -- surgery thurs 9/25, strips removed the following thurs, 10/2.  I too have the "goiter" look.  Doc said it was b/c of the reaction to the glue.  Good luck!
