I doubt it really matters as my wounds look completely healthy (extremely bruised) but healthy. I had my laparoscopy on Monday (2nd of feb) it's now Sunday (8th of feb) and I've only just taken dressing off. Obviously I've taken it off daily and cleaned& dried it but then I've applied new clean dressing to cover it just because I'm so weary about catching it. Today though I finally took it off for good (depending on how today goes) and was wondering when everyone else took theirs off for good. How quickly did you stitches dissolve and how soon did the pain go away? Also is it normal for it to feel really hard below my belly button where one incision was made? That's the most bruised also

My dressing was off after a few days. I had my stitches removed a week later.
