How long after you get the Nexplanon implant can you remove the dressing?

I just got the implant today and they told me not to remove the bandage for 24 hours but it keeps slipping off my arm and I do not have anything to make it tighter. Also I have read that you need to keep a bandage over it for 4-5 days is that true or after the 24 hours are you good to shower and do all the normal things? Thanks!

Update:

It has been about 8 hours and my arm still feels numb. Is that normal or should I call my doctor?
