Sitz Baths

Postby mmklinemm » 22 Mar 2018, 08:11

Did anyone's doctors tell them how long to do the sitz baths after surgery? My aftercare instructions just said to start them the night of my procedure. My LIS was 17 days ago. I'm still doing them at least 4 times a day. I'm just wondering how much longer I should keep doing them.

My instructions said to do so for 2 weeks, but I did them longer (about 4 weeks), just to be safe.
