So I finally had my lap on Friday 20th just gone of which no endo found, cyst had gone, right ovary found stuck together with adhesions and scar tissue in same area so ovary was unstuck and adhesions, etc removed. Also found I have a double uterus crown which they said shouldn't affect pregnancy or anything in future. God knows how no one noticed this on baby scans, etc when I was pregnant. Also had mirena coil fitted to sort periods fully hopefully. So I had to stay in overnight because pain wasn't under control properly yet and couldn't get out of bed or go for wee unaided all day.. I came home yesterday but I'm just wondering how to go about the dressings when I shower tonight 48 hrs after op. Nurse gave me some dressings and waterproof plasters and said we don't like them to be changed until after 48 hours but if you feel you need to before then do but nothing has been said about showering side of it.. So do I keep them on in shower and change them after? Or do I take them off, shower, pat dry then put clean ones on? Very confused about what I should do. Advice would be much appreciated!! Thank you xxxx
