398758 tn?1248220291 Hi all, I'm a 4-year breast cancer survivor. My friend had breast cancer recently; she's had a lumpectomy, and had several lymph nodes in the armpit removed. Her onc told her that, due to the risk of getting lymphedema, she could never put her arm in warm water again. No hot tubs, no tub baths, no swimming. I'm an avid swimmer, and I've had no problems whatsoever using hot tubs at the gym. Is this a new precaution? Thanks.
Avatar f tn I've read some stuff about hot tubs since that's the temp I like in my bath tub and shower and it said not to let your core temp raise above 102. It had some other helpful info too so maybe Google hot tubs and pregnancy.
Avatar f tn My wife wants me to her and the neighbors in their new hot tub however if I take a long hot shower I get a headache and dizzy. My wife says I am crazy. I can't ask my doctor lost our insurance last January. Am I crazy? Is this all in my head to say?
Avatar f tn ) i would prob not go into the tub and use an excuse why but would go to the party.
Avatar f tn I just wouldnt put it right on ur belly. Hot tubs temp never drops and its very hot so u and baby can overheat.
Avatar f tn Try not having them quite so hot. It's important not to raise your core body temperature. I too am a fan of really hot baths..as hot as I can stand them. But during pregnancy, I had to keep it to warm. It's the same reason you want to avoid hot tubs...it can cause problems for both you and the baby. COngrats on your pregnancy.
Avatar f tn So I got in the hot tub with my husband tonite but when I told my sister we were in it she feaked out and said hot tubs are bad for the baby while pregnant. It wasnt even hot it was more of a warm bath temperature. Is that bad for the baby? Im 19 weeks pregnant and the baby is moving around alot so I know she is doing okay I just wanted to know how bad getting into a hot tub was.
Avatar f tn I know that hot tubs are out of the question. I think it all depends on how hot the water in the spring is.
Avatar f tn t do it. Jacuzzis and hot tubs is all about the hot temperature, which creates an environment that germs and bacteria like. And besides, hot tubs is normally not too sanitized due to so Many people using it. The risk is the possibility of infection.
Avatar f tn It is more dangerous in the beginning of pregnancy and avoiding it then is a good idea. I am 28 weeks and when we go to the pool I go into the hot tub for 5-10 mins and then into the cold pool. The dangerous part of it is because our bodies can sweat to cool down (in pregnancy this process takes quite a bit longer, depending on the woman) and baby can't sweat to cool down.
Avatar n tn Only problem I had with the hot tub is the heat of the water making me very, very weak and faint feeling. Couldn't handle it on tx. But, then again, a HOT shower will do the same thing to me now. Good luck to you.
Avatar n tn Regina, this is a question best asked of your physician. I can NOT use a hot tub and even if a bath is too hot and I stay in it too long, my heart rate slows down too much, and I feel like I'm going to pass out. A couple of times I've had to climb out of the tub and lay on the bathroom tile floor to cool off, sometimes for as much as 1/2 an hour till I get to feeling better. And a hot tub is quite a bit hotter than a traditional bathtub.

I definitely agree with achillea that hot tubs would be a good thing for someone to stay away from while healing from open-heart surgery. I think I may have heard something about the possibility of blood pressure going too low in a hot tub, but that's pretty much the opposite of what you would be worried about with a TAA.
Avatar f tn Not to have a bath over 100 degrees F. If u feel hot get out and u don't want your skin to be red... That's a sign your body temp is rising and can harm your baby. Call your OB. Every OB is different but everyone I have known has taken baths. No hot tubs, saunas or jacuzzi tubs...
Avatar f tn Hot tubs can kill unborn babies because amniotic fluid heats up extremely fast and takes a long time to cool off.
Avatar f tn Noooo hot tubs raise your heart rate
Avatar n tn Can babies, five and under go in a hot tub or spa?The temp. is set @102. I have heard it's bad for thier bones?
Avatar n tn It was suggested to me that I try a heating pad to help with the discomfort. I know that I should not use hot tubs/hot baths/jacuzzi and such because of the heat. I am wondering if a heating pad is safe for the baby if I use it once a day for 15 minutes. In the past I was able to manage the problem with stretching exercises but those no longer help. Any suggestions? Thanks, Tina ?
Avatar f tn Saunas, hot tubs, and hot baths are not recommended. From my understand luke warm baths are okay. If you did get in the hot tub and are experiencing pain I would call your OB...

Avatar f tn I think that is why they put those warning signs up at hot tubs. I, personally, don't go into hot tubs because I get so faint feeling, so does my daughter. I don't like that feeling so I don't go in, same with hot baths. But I think everyone feels that way if in too hot water for too long???
Avatar f tn When I was 8 or 9 weeks I got in the hot tub and the sauna afterwards. I would start to feel kind of hot and then light headed so I just got out. I'm now 13+5 weeks and the baby and I are totally good and healthy. My doctor said that it's good that I listened to my body and got out she doesn't recommend going in hot tubs but told me that we know what our bodies can handle.
