I need your advice! I had my laparoscopy two days ago, op went well and I came home the same day. I have three incision sites - bikini line, belly button and left pelvis which are covered with waterproof plasters. I was instructed by the nurse upon my discharge that I had to keep the dressing on for 3-5 days. She changed the dressing on my belly because it had been leaking a bit and gave me a spare to take home with me in case I needed to change it. I've just come out the bath and changed my dressing because it looked like it had been leaking more than the other sites. Well, I took it off and it's gross. It's itchy and really stinks and turned my stomach (sorry for TMI ) because it looks quite wet still (even though no water has been inside it). I feel ok apart from usual pains after the lap (this is my third). Is the smell normal when the wound is covered like this or is it a sign it could be infected? Sorry if this is a really stupid question but each of my laps have been different in terms of aftercare ... First one I had dissolvable stitches and my wounds were left for the air to get at, the second my wounds were covered in superglue ... This is different again so I'm really worried. I'm going to ring my GP in the morning but I would really appreciate anyone else's experiences of this. Thank you so much, I'm driving myself crazy with worry ... I just wanted to know if this was normal!
