Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out. Typically showers are allowed after 3 days and tub baths after the sutures are removed. So please discuss this with your operating surgeon.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
