I had dissolvable stitches too! You'll probably be in hospital for 3 or 4 days after a caesarean section, and may need to take things easy for several weeks.
How soon after a c section can you take a bath. It made me feel a million times better! I am going to have geranium bath oils, chocolate, and a scotch on the rocks. Your doctor may suggest not to take a fully submerged bath until three weeks after the surgery (1).
If the sutures get wet, the wound could become infected and lead to further complications. The reason behind this recommendation is because your body is still an open wound. The removable shower head was so useful for me, i had my fiancé go to cvs and get one for our house.
In general, two weeks is a good marker for when it's likely safe to submerge your healing wound in bath water, says dr. The ideal time to take bath or the safe period is after 10 days. For this of you who had a c section, how long did/will you wait before taking a bath?
The incision area needs to be kept relatively dry, and the actual movements required to get into and out of a bathtub can cause undue strain on. A shower makes you feel so much better too. The cut will take around a week nearly to heal it.
It was 30 mins a day where i left him in charge. The cut will take around a week to heal. The average stay in hospital after a caesarean is around 3 or 4 days.
As far as i understood it was good to bathe it as it helps keep it clean. Doctors advise that you need to give 7 to 10 days for the incisions to heal, during this time it should not get wet or else it would lead to infections. Therefore there is no risk of really bleeding by thinning of blood, also don't over due it, one or two would be more than enough.
Walking encourages blood circulation and prevents blood clotting in deep veins of leg. So i would sit on the chair in the hospital shower, and soap up the top of my belly, then take the removable shower head and let the water and soap run down me, then finish with a pat dry. After 19 days you must be feeling crap with no proper wash!
It is to keep the incision area dry and prevent bath water from entering the vagina. My incision looks fine though. I had a c section 7 weeks ago and was advised by my midwife to bathe on day 2 of being home so 4 days after.
So looking forward to taking a bath!!! It also facilitates easy bowel movement. Thank you, thank you, you have made my day, my shower is rubbish.
Your incision is fresh and it’s practically still opened, so you want to avoid any contact to the incision. When you are taking a bath, use a cloth and lightly wet it with warm water and just dab it on top of. It helps to wash dirt away.
You may also strain yourself by getting in and out of the bathtub, which might delay recovery. Have sex (yes, i know, and we don't need to bring it up again) get a flippin' tattoo, particularly in the area of your incision. Sit in a hot tub, pool or even bath.
So it must have been 4 days after the cs and i was home. Engage in strenuous exercise or lift. Use the shower head to let the water run over the wound, pat dry with clean towel.
But a shower is usually recommended post operatively. In china, they think you shouldn’t bathe for a month after having a baby. In fact i perfectly recall asking dh to bring me a g&t in the bath!
This stems from old traditions though, primarily because, in the olden days, when there was no running water, they had to go outside to bathe. I think as long as you haven't had any problem with your wound you should be fine xx If you take a bath prior to 2 weeks, irobunda says there’s a risk of introducing an infection to the incision.
