(wound fluids still has to be able to flow outside my body). They close it off with a bandage so it should be no problem going to work with it.
Perhaps this sounds icky, but it's not painful. (then again, my pain theshold isn't that low but really, it doesn't hurt)
Yeah, maybe it sounds more icky than it is. If you think you can ride a bike with such a wound (and it doesn't hurt) then you can probably work too.
