Rosie had surgery yesterday to remove a lump from her back leg. They gave her an E-collar which she absolutely hates, an I'm concerned because after she gets wet food she'll have nasal discharge; I think it's too restrictive. I'd like to bandage her foot and the vet says it's okay (though it's too close to closing for me to get there) so long as she doesn't bother it. She had a lump removed from the same foot a few years ago, was bandaged, and never touched it (different vet). Does anyone have advice on making a really secure bandage in that area? Thanks!

You may be able to get by without a bandage OR an e-collar. I've never really had to e-collar a pig after surgery. With proper pain medication they don't tend to be self-mutilators, but you need to keep an eye on the area, as well. :)
