incision care during shower after hysterectomy

Incision care while I shower?

Do you have suggestion on my incision care while I take a shower?

After your hysterectomy, you will be given instructions that likely include information on how to take care of your incision. The main thing is: Keep your incision dry.

Many women wonder how they can do that if they have been given permission to take a shower. We have the answer!

Your shower can be taken in such a way as to protect your incision/s on your belly. Keep your protective bandaid over your incisions and cover with tape and plastic. Then make sure your back is to the water flow, away from your incision area.

Make the shower quick even though you are probably longing to take a long, lingering shower. Wash up quickly and then turn the water off. Dry completely off making sure to remove the plastic covering over your incision. If your bandaid is wet or damp, remove it and replace it after blotting your incision dry.

The key is to keep your incision area dry so that healing can take place. If your incision gets wet and stays wet, infection can be introduced and healing will be prolonged.

Once your incision is healed over, its still important to not allow water stream to hit the fresh healed incision area for a longer period. Allow for longer healing and be careful with your healing wounds.

We, also, suggest several different products that might be useful.

Reminders:

Note:  Do not take a bath as this involves immersing your body in water which can introduce infection into your incision/s.
