For this issue you have two choices, depending on contractor availability, how much it is leaking, and whether you have another tub/shower available for use. You can call a plumber and have the plumbing fixed right now, then get the rot issue fixed (which commonly will require taking the tub out and redoing flooring and maybe walls at that time), or you can (if able to use other tub/shower or leak is minimal) see if you can get a Remodeling - Kitchen and Bath contractor who can solve the leak and the rot issue and repair of any underlying ceiling damage in one swipe.


Obviously, till leak is fixed do not use any lights which are in the underying wet area of ceiling.
