I am now 4 weeks post op. My incisions are healed - look great. I don't see my doc for 2 more weeks and at that point I guess he'll release me to drive (hope). But that's not my question...
I long for a nice, hot bath. I'm so tired of using my hub's shower and a shower chair to "attempt" to shave my legs! In my tub (not a whirlpool tub), I can keep the water level overall to just under my incision so it doesn't just soak. But can anyone here tell me what the protocol is for bathing? I have a good handle so I'm not concerned with falling. Seems like I've read that some of you are swimming at this point?
(I had a PLIF level 4-5 with decompression and separate incision over hip for bone graft)
Isn't it funny how the least little things become so important once you are restricted from doing them??????
