My DR told me not to take them off myself, but to let them just about fall off in the shower. It took about 10 days, but they eventually got to where they were just barely hanging there and I gently removed them at that point.

I would call your DR's office and ask, though.

Let them fall of on their own accord, that's what my doctor advised.
Also, I'm sure he told you no baths, right? Showers only.
Happy recovery!!

Let them fall off. It does get a little annoying, finding the little buggers everywhere! I trimmed the loose parts off with a pair of scissors.
