Are there any bathing interdictions after the sacrocolpopexy procedure?

Before you are discharged, you will get the necessary aftercare instructions that include your personal hygiene habits.

You have to keep the abdominal wounds dry during the first two weeks after sacrocolpopexy. Afterward, it’s better to shower instead of bathing and it is also recommended to avoid products that contain perfume.

Washing in the bathtub or using the swimming pool increases the risk of infection and this is why these activities should be avoided for a while.
