I recently had my appendix out, and I have these

Patient: I recently had my appendix out, and I have these little gauze tape things over the three incisions. My nurse told me they would fall of on their own in 2 or 3 days, but it’s been a week and they are still there. I am concerned that they might get infected while I can’t clean them. Is it okay to take these bandages off, or should I leave it be?

 

 

Symptoms: Tenderness, itching, soreness
