5 days post laparoscopy. Belly button is sore. Much dried blood under tape. Can I remove tape or will it bother incision. Can't remove blood otherwise?

Soreness. at the site of a surgical incision 5 days after surgery is normal. Generally pain medication is prescribed by the surgeon for this discomfort. Dried blood under surgical tape can be normal & is not a cause of pain. If there is increasing skin redness around the incision, or other concerns, see or call your surgeon soon. Call your surgeon before removing any tapes.
