2 doctors agree

In brief: Yes

This should allow the surgical site to remain clean and dry.
The surgeon will have given instructions as to how to shower or bathe with the incision.

In brief: Yes, OK

But keep it clean.
Ok to cover loosely for comfort if there are stitches or staples but not necessary.
