    Hello

     

    First of all here is our information about skin grafts.

     

    I am not a doctor but I do think that you need to tell your doctor about how it looks underneath the graft.

     

    On this drug site they give this warning:


    "What factors may cause problems with a full-thickness skin graft? Certain problems with a FTSG may lead to graft loss. These may include the following:

    * Bleeding under the graft.

     

    Most of the literature says it will take a long time to heal.  Did they give you any advice, warnings, suggestions on your skin graft before you went home?

     

    I would call the doctor to make sure if things are healing properly.

     

    Thank you for your question.
