Is it ok to bath and shower after only one week?
Feel like showering but scare I wet my wound though is cover with waterproof plaster.
I thought C-section must wait till heal. But the breast milk makes me feel like cow leaving smell. Done confinement a while, now want to bath.
I bathed on the 3rd day after C-Sect. Just cover the waterproof plaster with another plastic secured with a bandage tape to prevent water from sipping in, just in case. I too can't go without bath either.
Wow, i really when thru 10 days without the standard bath ..............................
until i tak boleh tahan ........... keep pestering my mum in law whom is in charge of my confinement.
Until she given green light to let me bath, but on the condition that I still have to end the bath with
lemon grass warm water..............sign
Ya, usually is waterproof plaster mah, so dont need extra cover..
Later will try to bath see what happen. Stitches kind of itchy now.
will the normal disposable panties rest on the C-section then?? Dont know what type of panty to buy ??

on the 2nd or 3rd day after c-section for me. Can't stand for not showering. : )
How long will wound recover for C-section? My gynae ask me to remove the tape that cover the wound today. Very scare the stitch will break after removing.
Girdle is the shorts? Or the one for body wrap?
My gynae says use abdominal support wrap.
Girdle not sure will work. Though I got a few girdle at home.
