So I hope this is the right place for this, and I am NOT looking for Medical advice per say, just other folks experience.
I had "back surgery" last week - it was invasive and I have a 3 inch "cut/scar" on my back. It was internally "stitched" and "externally super glued". It is healing nicely and now has a nice "scab" over it.
The Doctors Orders say I can take a bath/shower after 48 hours.
The "discharge nurse" told my Wife I should stay out a swimming pool for 4-6 weeks. (or the rest of the summer essentially)
My Doctor "won't comment" on the matter as I think he doesn't want to contradict what the discharge nurse said, etc.
But does anybody have any real world experience with this ? Any reason I can't go swimming in my perfectly balanced, no algae, no junk pool ? Heck it is cleaner water than my bath/shower water.
Any insight is appreciated!
