Re: bath

I had a dVH-BSO and my doctor said no baths for 8 weeks. It takes the vaginal cuff longer to heal than the incision sites on the tummy and we all have a vaginal cuff - no matter which surgery. I am at 8 weeks now and didn't have any problems during recovery but I did follow the pelvic rest rules my doc laid out very closely.

Re: bath

I had LSH DaVinci and Dr. told me I could take a bath as soon as I got home, but nurse who discharged me said shower. So, I showered for the first 5 days and then took a bath.
