I had my skin graft procedure done 2 years ago. Today, while cleaning, I cut my arm where the graft is and it started to bleed. The cut is about an inch or two long and very thin. Has anyone ever cut their grafted area? Will it heal or will it just remain open and bleed for eternity?

Hi TerryG314,

I have had minor cuts on my grafted areas and they have healed no problem… so hopefully it will be the same for you.  Keep an eye on it and if it gets hot or inflamed then seek medical attention but hopefully it will heal like normal.  Fingers crossed and let us know what happens.
