When did you take a bath?

Of course I've been showering, lol...but how long before any of you took a warm soaking bath? I'll be 4 weeks Monday. When I went to the Dr. 2 weeks ago I forgot to ask. Thanks for anyone who answers. I'm so ready to take a bath, lol

OMG!! I forgot to ask my Doctor too! I would love to have a nice soaking bath. It's only been 9 days for me. I'll call my Doctor Monday morning and see if he approves. I hope he does..

Ihad a lavh on monday,may 8th. On thursday the 11th, my dr told me it was ok to bathe and that it would help with the pain. I haven't been brave enough to actually take one yet, it seems too early.

I forgot to ask my doctor. I will see him on Tuesday so I will ask then. In the mean time, I worked up enough courage to take my steri strips off(today) and have been taking very warm showers. The warm water feels good on my back. I am nervous about my post op appt on Tuesday. Not sure what to expect.

I had a TVH and the doc told me 4 weeks and I also could douche. I am 6 weeks yesterday and only needed to douche once. I have taken I think 3 baths---going it slow yet. Hope that helps.

When did you take a bath?

I had TAH last Monday (May 8th), got out of the hospital on Wednesday the 10th and was told I could take a bath immediately. Haven't tried it yet, as I don't think I could get up and down out of the tub, just showers so far.

Do talk to your dr about what is right for you. Different drs have different procedures. My gives a flat out "no bathing for 6 weeks," even though I had the LAVH.

When did you take a bath?

My doc said no baths until my post op check up with her. My check up was at 7 1/2 weeks! So, I came right home and soaked in the tub.

When did you take a bath?

No baths for 6 weeks after my VH. I will assume since I am still bleeding he will not realease me to take them at that time either and I would love to soak in some epsom salt!
