Had a laposcopy on Thursday was told I couldn’t have a Bath for ten days. Went into boots to get some more plasters and found they had waterproof ones for bathing especially for wounds and stitches. The pharmacy man also said I could bath after 7 days. I stuck 3 plasters on and ones leaked where it was stuck to my hair others are bone dry. The stitches now itch should I be worried or is it normal feeling stupid.

I'd phone 111 for advice op. Hopefully everything is ok.

That's normal. Unless it becomes inflamed etc I wouldn't fuss x

Keep an eye on it, get proper advice if you're worried, but I seem to recall I was told I could bathe/shower shower three days after I had keyhole surgery as long as the incisions were dry - so no bleeding or anything.

If it goes red worry. If not just bathe with salt water and pat dry.
