Showering after knee operation: This keeps the wound plaster dry

Due to a knee operation, I was faced with the problem: How to take a shower without the wound plasters getting wet?

Waterproof patches in the size were not at hand, also not sooo big plastic bag. I have an alternative household-fresh plastic wrap wrapped over the knee and partially thigh (2-3 times around) and fixed at the top with a wide strip of Tesafilm. Likewise, the seam strip of the film.

Showers were then possible without problems, without the wound plaster was wet.
