Postoperative Salivary Gland Neck?
I’ve had surgery for 9 days on my neck, can I wash my face / get water?
From the information you have conveyed, there is a history of surgery on the glands in the neck, and this has been going on for 9 days, then your wound should be better and healed, especially if the stitches have been taken by the doctor who treated you on the 6th or 7th day. So, you should be able to do facial care and skin care around your surgical wound.
However, you should discuss it directly with your family doctor or the doctor who treats you, because the surgical wound that heals and can be exposed to water, must be confirmed directly by the doctor who treats you. so that the risk of infection and the risk of damp and wet wounds can be avoided.
If you do not come directly to the doctor who treats you, then the wound cannot be examined directly and it cannot be ascertained whether it has healed or not.
That is the information we can convey, read also wound care.
