When the doctors and nurses say do nothing after surgery they literally mean nothing.
Had my clips and stitches removed yesterday (op was 26/10/16). Wound not fully healed being held together by steri strips.
This won't happen to all of you. It is more common with a vertical incision.
The nurse has told me to sit and read or watch TV and move only to go to the toilet.
Hadn't been doing anything I haven't meant to be either.
Just enjoy the rest and be careful
