In brief: OK this is a direct

Question for the surgeon who took care of you.
Call them. And make sure you have follow up. As much deeds upon the nature of the injury i.e. Was it open, was there injured tissue, how stable is the injury. Perhaps the dressing is meant to stay on until your followup. Dont reinvent the wheel. Call your surgeon who did the surgery during normal business hours and clarify.
