How soon can I take a bath after lobectomy?


Recommended Posts

I miss taking baths - it’s been 3 weeks since my surgery.  Anyone have any idea how long before it’s safe?

You should have gotten an aftercare plan from the hospital or surgeon. Mine said no baths or pools until incisions are completely healed... which in my case was about 5 weeks. The incisions healed up faster but the wounds where the chest tubes were took ages to heal and hurt like heck.
