I think it's whatever your hospital's policy is. I could wear deodorant, but no lotions or anything like that.

I agree with Timpist that it's whatever you hospital's policy is. I wasn't allowed to wear deodorant or anything.

Re: can i wear deodorant day of surgery

hmmm, I had an ablation in June and my TAH in November and that was never mentioned at all. I had deodorant on both times and the night before the TAH I shaved my legs and put on lotion...

I did the antiseptic abd wash and wasn't supposed to lotion there or wear makeup but otherwise I didn't have deodorant or lotion restriction. But I'm sure it varies by hospital.

I didn't have any restrictions...I wore deodorant, but didn't put lotion on my lower body/legs, as I figured it would all be washed off with whatever they would end up doing "down there". :-)
