What are steps for post operation care?

After undergoing surgery, it is crucial to maintain the cleanliness and dryness of the wound. The dressing should be taken off on the first or second day after surgery, and adhesive bandages should be used to cover the wounds. It is important not to remove any visible sutures or paper strips. In cases where an ace wrap was applied to control swelling, it should be reapplied and kept on for 5-7 days after the surgery.
