Today, I had to get an EKG device attached for a 24-hour test. Not too bad, but I have to wear a string vest over it, and every time I move, it chafes something crazy. My nipples in particular. Only 22 hours to go. FML

Put bandaids on your nipples like runners do. Presto. No nipple chafing.

Some people charge extra for that

Seriously. It's not rocket science.

OP could be a female. The icon says male, but a couple of the other FML's have a male icon when the writer was female.

Why would the writer's gender matter? Males or females could do this.

word of advice prepare to develop bald spots where they attatch the recievers a few yeara down the line.

use Band-Aids on your nips

Hopefully it will be fine while you're sleeping

I'm currently stuck on a 72 hour eeg and ekg monitor. Itchy in some spots and some spots it feels like they are ripping my scalp off. I feel your pain.

Sounds kind of shitty, but this is after I had a surgery were I had to have my nipples regrafted...which means they were cut off and sewn on again. There is bandaging over them, but imagine runners chafe (without bandages) x 10 everytime you move. Something like that. Try to focus on something to let the time go by, 24 hours is not too bad.

EKG device as in the Holter Monitor for 24 hours, correct? If so, I have had it done for 48 hours before and the best thing to do is tape down a small section of some of the wires to prevent this. By doing so, it also prevents the wire from getting tangled and makes them look less visible under your clothing. Just remember to use tape that is meant for the skin since they are easy to remove and decreases the chances of getting rashes.
