I miss my bathtub!

Ok I think I need to re read my post op list of instructions, I dont remember there being anything about having a bath. But reading this thread makes me think its off my agenda for some time at least.

I havent had one because I am too scared of getting in and out. and was wondering when it would be safe. I'm going crazy without a long hot soapy soak!!!!!!!!!!!! Especially being so cooped up and not being able to go out, baths are a great boredom reliever.........

I miss my bathtub!

I took a nice, hot bath tonight (3 weeks post-op today!). Didn't call my dr. and ask (shame on me!) but I think I'll be OK since the nurse told me before that I could soak in the hot water for a short time. I feel so much better now!! Today was a rough day and I had to take a Vicodin, which I haven't had to do in 2 weeks, so the bath was just what I needed!

I miss my bathtub!

Got my 5 week check and was cleared to have my first bath.
It was wonderful!! Gheesh.....I was in there relaxing and making funny oohing sounds, I sounded just like the lady on the Herbal Essence Shampoo commercial...LOL
Only one problem, the water gets cold tooooo fast! So I had to refill a couple of times...I was wrinkly and waterlogged but boy, did I enjoy it.
Well, off to have another one soon, and I'm sure you will all enjoy your first bath as much as I have.

I am confused i have had a TAH on 15th November and I have had two baths not with the jets on.
Why cant we have baths???
The only difference I have found is that I have very low blood pressure and I must take it easy afterwards.

Barb, you also need to make sure that your water is not hot because that will lower your blood pressure too and you could pass out trying to get out of the tub...please be careful. I wouldn't take a bath without someone home.

I was cleared at my six week appt. on Dec.2 for the bath. I absoulutely hate taking showers. I soaked in the tub for a long long time and read a book it was great. I just kept counting down the days and it came very fast, hang in there, soaking day will come soon.
