Patient : I had a vaginal hysterectomy a week ago. My instruction sheet has conflicting information. It says that I should rinse the incision with water but then it says do not douche. I am worried because there is still some blood and I worry that bacteria or something may be forming if I don't do what is necessary. Help?
