Is it necessary for me to keep my foot dry after surgery until the stitches are removed?

No, most often we let you shower and change your own bandages after your first post-op visit. In the past we recommended patients keep the surgery site dry to avoid risk of infection—even clean water can carry contaminants. According to a recent study in the Journal of Foot and Ankle Surgery involving more than 2,000 patients, however, there wasn’t an increased risk of infection in post-op patients who were allowed to bathe their feet before suture removal.
