I wonder why there are so many differences between surgeons and hospitals. With both knee replacements I had glue and staples and on the 2nd day after surgery we are allowed to take a shower, nothing protecting the wound. I had glue and steri strips with my hip replacement and same procedure. So when I went home I was able to continue to have a shower. Staples with both knee replacements were removed 10 days after surgery.
