I would like information on what this post op strapping is actually for. What is the purpose and is its use necessary? (photo)

It may be helpful to try and loosen the strap you are wearing or try wearing the bra without the wrap. I'm sorry you have not had contact with your surgeon, but continue to try so that you can discuss the situation with them.
Ultimately, don't keep yourself in unrelenting pain, if you need to remove the strapping even temporarily, you should do so, if unable to connect with your surgeon.
