I had my laparoscopy on Wednesday and have three ports, one of which had a drain in. Until now I've just had quick washes but I'm desperate for a shower or bath. I've been told not to soak in the bath for long or use bubble bath but i'm unsure of what to do about dressings etc.
My plan is to dry the wounds with the hairdryer on a low setting, as suggested by the nurse and then redress them.
Am I ok to use soap/shower gel etc?
Seems a rediculous dilemma but i'm really not sure what to do!
