I had a partial abdominal hysterectomy 2 weeks ago with the dissolving stitches put in, I was wondering when I could soak in the bath tub. I take hot showers so please don't think I don't bathe, but really miss not being able to soak in a nice hot bath. Thanks in advance for your advice

....Turn on that tub and soak to your heart's desire.
Enjoy!!

I was in that tub within a few days and I did just fine.

Hope you're feeling better these days!

Hi
Hi,
thats the first question I asked my doc on my two weeks post op visit, can I take a long bath now??? And he said yes. So I think you can.

Although I was chicken and waited until yesterday!!!
Take care,
pat

My doctor said absolutely not until 6 weeks post op. I will do as she suggests. I know other doctors will allow it sooner, but why take a chance? I'll wait and then I will never ever get out of the tub again! Laughing
