First Bath!

Standard

I was told at my first post-op appointment that it was now okay to take a bath in water up to my waist.  The solution was to have my drains, bulbs and incisions covered in saran wrap, just in case.

Ridiculous saran wrap bath covering.

Who knew how amazing a few inches of warm water could feel compared to a sponge bath.

First Bath!  10 days post-op.

The surgeon also said that I could wash my hair in the tub.  This did not actually work.  Despite leaning back in the tub, holding onto my boyfriend, so he could rinse my hair, water still poured down the back of my saran wrap and leaked around to the front.  Luckily, I came home with just two extra pads to replace the now soaked antimicrobial pads that are to be placed around the area where drains enter my body.  Phew.  No more hair washing attempts in the tub.
