Belly full of staples

So I has my hernia repair on Wed, For some reason I was under the impression was going to be laparoscopic. Well today is when the dressing came off and I have 11 staples! WTF? I've never dealt with staples and they never came me any care instructions and I don't even know where they're suppose to come out? My GP is gone til Tuesday now,
