How long after a laparoscopy can I have a shower bath?

When you have a waterproof dressing, you can take a shower bath from the very next day, but after laparoscopic surgery, you should stop tub bath for two weeks. There are several explanations for this: to avoid infection, to avoid the incision line from cracking as it is damp and soft, and to prevent premature deterioration of the glue or adhesives holding the incision closed.
