I had BAHA surgery and was told I could take the gauze off today, and take a shower tomorrow. I'm wondering do I leave the dressing on covering the abutment, and how do I bathe exactly after surgery? Sorry for the stupid questions, I just would like to know. didn't think of them before surgery due to nervousness, and when I got through I woke up in the recovery room and my Dr./surgeon was gone. Sorry again if these are stupid questions.
