Is it safe to remove remaining steri strips post C-section if they haven't fallen off in one week as doctor ordered them to stay on?

In brief: Not best idea
The longer the sterristrips stay on, the better. They protect the wound and keep it from coming apart.

People heal at different rates and it may be best to call doctor first or even see doctor to see if you are well healed.
