I very strongly advise you to contact your surgeon, who will have his/her own protocol. A quick phone call should clear things up! In my own practice, I would have my patient shower with the knowledge that heat will increase swelling. Please do phone your surgeon. We surgeons always want the best for our patients, and for the healing process to go smoothly. We welcome questions; it's our duty and our pleasure to ensure that you are taking good care of yourself.
