First days

The first few days will not be your best for the obvious reason that you will still be feeling groggy. You will not only feel sore but will also experience some degree of pain. At this point, make the most out of the painkillers that you will be given at the surgery center but more important is that you should keep yourself as explained above.

Surgeons dissuade patients from bathing the first few days and especially in the first 48 hours after the surgery. If you feel that you must bathe within this time, then you must get the nod from the surgeon so as to avoid any arising complications.
