Shaving before TAH

Hi there

I was shaved but it definitely wasn't wasted. My scar (well my very faint pink line) is hidden under the hair. You wouldn't know it was there unless you had xray vision.

I think the shaving is to deter you from having s****x too soon cause you prickle like a porcupine HEATHER

Hi,

I just had "a little off the top." After I was asleep, they shaved a strip about an inch wide.

The shave is necessary to prevent infection. But it can be as aggravating as all get out, especially when it grows back!

I was advised to NOT shave at home. Any small nick or cut could have possibly caused my surgery to be postponed due to infection risk. So I followed the rules. The nurse took about 2 inches off the "top". It really didn't bother me too much. And now everything is well hidden beneath the hair.
