I had ankle tendon surgery 6 weeks ago and just had the cast

Resolved Question:

I had ankle tendon surgery 6 weeks ago and just had the cast removed today. I am now in a boot (with crutches) for 3 more weeks. The stiches have been removed, but the tape holding the incision is still in place. I forgot to ask my doctor if it is okay for me to get the incision wet in the shower. Please advise.

If the incision has healed and has no signs of infection, then yes you can shower.
