We are Macmillan. Cancer Support
Glad you got home through the snow.
I was told not to drive for 3 weeks although could have done. Perhaps it's more to do with insurance as well. In case you had accident you may not be covered.
I was told shower would be ok after 3 days by bc nurse but I smothered myself in dressings so didn't get it too wet. Then changed them myself after. The district nurse said don't let the wet stay near wound pat dry. I was having baths and not obviously getting it wet but she said be careful as even steam heat under dressing could cause infection. The main thing is drying off scar after and not having it hot and humid where bacteria can develop under dressing.
