Sitting in Water that you can splash over yourself is one thing, but soaking with incisions fully submerged is quite another. Be very careful with this. Your skin is your number one defense against bacteria entering your body.

As soon as you're able to get up and walk to the bathroom, they can take it out. It's OK for the incisions to get wet in the shower. My doctor actually wanted me to wash mine and keep them clean.

When can I take a bath or shower? As soon as you get home you may take a shower. You may gently wash the incision or incisions with mild soap and water. Please avoid bathing or submerging your wounds in any water for four weeks. If you have glue do not remove it but let it come off naturally. When can I drive?

Showering should be fine, you can actually cover the wound up with a clear adhesive bandage and then remove after showering. Definitely ask your doctor about this to be sure, I know for me, I was allowed to shower on day two, but no baths are allowed for me for 6 weeks.

Its fine to shower after a day or two, but don't let the Water hit directly on your belly. Also, be aware of how you are washing/drying. For instance, use a washrag, not a loofah, and wash your belly before "dirtier" areas. Also use a clean towel after each shower and dry your belly first.

I was strictly advised against a soaking-type bath or swimming until the steri-strips fell off. My incisions all had little pieces of fabric tape over them called "steri-strips". I tend to be sensitive to adhesives, but I didn't have any reaction to them aside from the fact that it took at least 2 weeks for them to start peeling.

The huge excessive weight loss in patients who had sleeve gastrectomy was 56.1% at 12 months post-surgery (Fischer et al., 2012). The weight loss varies between 42% -78%. Also in this study, the value of 78% was achieved by the best surgeon and the worst surgeon average was close to 42%.

the problem with submerged water things - like baths, hot runs, or swimming, is that bacteria loves water in those temps and can easily infiltrate your unhealed wounds. It's too dangerous until your skin is all sealed up again.

Post-op weight loss surgery patients ARE more prone to dehydration and not only is it best for your progress to get in 64 to 96 ounces of water, it’s also important to keep you from getting to the point of needing fluids. If you do wonder at what point you need to get IV fluids, read this blog. BUT!

‘you can fill a bath with a dripping or running tap’. Having a few grapes here, a couple of nuts there, a thin sliver of cake at work, a few crisps/chips in the evening, an alcoholic drink as a regular thing rather than treat, all can add up to a substantial amount of calories by the end of the day or week, and will eventually lead to a weight stall or weight regain.

Baths are perfectly safe in pregnancy if you follow a few simple rules: Avoid baths after your water has broken. Keep your bathwater warm, not hot. 98.6 degrees F is just perfect and feels great. If you follow these criteria, you can take a bath every day until you give birth.

Synthetic cathinones, more commonly known as bath salts, are drugs that contain one or more human-made chemicals related to cathinone, a stimulant found in the khat plant. Synthetic cathinones are marketed as cheap substitutes for other stimulants such as methamphetamine and cocaine.
The World Health Organization recommends delaying the first bath until at least 24 hours after birth. Others suggest waiting up to 48 hours or more. Once your baby is home, there’s no actual need to bathe daily. Until the umbilical cord is healed, the AAP recommends you stick to sponge baths.
Water turns to ice at 0 degrees Celsius / 32 degrees Fahrenheit. For an ice bath, the water should be around 10-15 degrees Celsius (around 50-60 Fahrenheit). This usually takes around 10 minutes to achieve if using a 3:1 water to ice ration, or instantly if it is just ice in the tub.
How long should you ice bath for? This will be the main question you will be asking as soon as you jump in. The magic number to aim for is 15 minutes. Research has shown this has the most effective time to get the most out of the cold treatment. After 15 minutes, the effects are diluted just as the ice soon will be.
