Brief Answer:
You can take bath

Detailed Answer:
Hi Jxxxxxxxxx, thanks for asking from HCM.

I can understand your concern. The cerebral artery dissection and cerebellar stroke occurred in October. Almost 2 months have passed since then. You can take bath without problem.

One thing keep in mind, avoid vigorous neck movement for at least 4 more months. Vigorous neck movements can cause arterial dissection.

Hope it will help you. If you any doubts, do let me know.
Thanks. Take care.
