If the surgery site is bleeding more than normal you can always add more gauze under the ace bandage. Never take the gauze on there off, because this will only reopen the wound in the places it has already clotted and will make it bleed more. So, add the gauze on top of what is already on there. Also be sure to give us a call when you do this so we can determine what the next course of action is.
