Hi! My scabs were horrible, because they gagged me, and I had to run to the bathroom and get sick each time I felt them slide. EWWWW!
On day 7, I called my school and told them that I'd need a sub for the next full week because I wasn't healing as quickly as I thought I could. Why didn't I listen to my doctor when he said 2 full weeks?!
But, on day 9, I went out for the first time. My boyfriend took me to walmart for my first outing, and boy was it scary! But after I got through that hurdle of doing something, each day that went by was easier. But, i was very glad to have taken that extra week off.
I'd say it's basically up to how you feel, just don't push it too much until you get your doctor's ok
