When can I take a tub bath?

Well, I finally broke down and took a bath tonight. I just had to! I usually take a hot soak at least once or twice a week and it's been 3 weeks now! I didn't put anything in the water (bubble bath, etc) and tried to keep my incision out of the water as much as possible, then when I got out I cleaned it off really well. But I didn't think about the cuff, oops! Guess I'll find out if I did any damage at my 4 week check up next Tuesday.

No baths! :(

My doc said no baths, due to the possibility of dissolving stitches (inside and out?) ahead of schedule. At my 2wk check, he still said no... I am waiting for my 6wk check next week - hoping for a go then; I too love a good hot soak, and I have a whirlpool tub calling my name.... it is making me NUTS!

(I am looking forward to the bath way more than sex, even!)

When can I take a tub bath?

I called my doc this morning and asked her about it, and she said no tub baths for two weeks. oops, I already had taken them for 3 nights in a row.
I guess wait until you get clearance from YOUR doc.
