WAAA I want a tub bath!

I so would love to sit in the tub for an hour or two and just soak. I am in Minnesota, and that is how I get warm during the winter! It has been cold here for the last few days, and boy a nice tub of hot water would feel so good on these arthritic joints! I have a permanent back injury that is really bothering me, and the hot water would help that too!

Oh well, if I am lucky, only 4 weeks to go to that bath, but by then it will be spring!

WAAA I want a tub bath!

I had my 2 wk post-op yesterday and got cleared to take a bath. What a joy! I live in Northern California in the mtns. and its been cold, not like Minn. but in the 20's - 30's. I know what you mean about warming up, I sympathize with you You'll be soaking before you know it

WAAA I want a tub bath!

I had to wait the full 6 weeks for a tub bath with my TAH. It varies so much from doctor to doctor. But my doctor said it would reduce the chance of infection by introducing any contaminated water to my insides. I didn't want to take any chance of getting an infection that I could have prevented. I waited until I was cleared, then I really enjoyed the soaks. AAAAaaahhhhhhhh!

Hi all

My Dr. also made me wait the full six weeks before a bath.He also felt it reduced the risk of infections.I also live in Minn. and it was winter, I missed my warm baths but figured I wait just a little longer so I would finally feel good.

WAAA I want a tub bath!

I know what you mean, I want to soak in the tub so badly! I give my son his bath at night and I just stare longingly at the water WISHING after I put him to bed that I could go back into the bathroom and climb into that tub and fill it with hot hot water and soak until I am all wrinkley.....oh what a TREAT it will be once I can do that again!!!

Knee deep

....My calves hurt, so I filled our spa tub up to mid thigh level and knelt in the swirling water, my arms etc. Just kept torso/bum area above the water. It helped the aching joints a bit. But made me jealous of Sports Med centers where they have spas for different body parts.

I am right there with ya. I would LOVE to sit and soak. I take (or should I say took) a long bubble bath every night before bed. magical relaxation technique for me. when I get the go ahead, I am going to sit and soak for hours I think... change the water from time to time to keep it hot. maybe a few candles.... a glass of wine...... well, anyway, I have a few more weeks to go, but I got plans!
hang in there jennifer. maybe time will go fast.
