Bandage too tight?

Hello all. I posted earlier about having my bunionectomy today and had a question about my bandage. It feels very tight and is adding to my discomfort. I read an article about how that top dressing is important and is supposed to be snug but at what point do I draw the line? My toes are are a little darker than the ones on the good foot but that's probably a result of the trauma of surgery. Does anyone whose had this know if it's safe to loosen this?

It's probably from the swelling. Keep it elevated and iced as directed and that should help.

I ended up calling the doctor who told me to loosen the outer ace wrap and it was much better!
