Shaving your legs! LOL

I just had to post this because I know we could all use a laugh.
How long did it take you to first shave your legs after your hyst.?
Well, here is my story.
I shaved the day before I went into the castle and then did not shave again until I was 5 weeks post op, only because I was in too much pain to do anything until 4 weeks post op.
When I finally did shave my legs, I used up 2 razers and took almost 45 minutes to get it done! LOL
Well here I am at almost 8 weeks this Monday and it wasn't so bad this time, just used up 1 razer and 20 minutes. Normally I can reuse my razer several times before throwing it away. I guess I better start shaving more!
I would really be interested in hearing from other sisters in their adventure in this!

I shaved somewhere around two weeks. My sister was telling me that it would be okay to sit on the side of the tub and shave my legs, not knowing that I had already shaved them while I was in the shower!

Honestly? I guess I'm a bit obsessive about it... or else I just wanted to see if I could do it... because I shaved my legs during my very first shower when I was home.

Maybe I'm just crazy. I wouldn't be surprised!

Yep, that's what I did, sat on the tub for 45 minutes and I was sore to say the least!

I tried at 3 weeks for postop checkup with gyno. I say tried cause we got to the office and both my knees looked like I hadn't shaved in a year. Here I was trying to look like I was able to do stuff! I had hair patches everywhere. The knees were hysterical, though.

My surgery is tomorrow and I was going to do them tonight, since they are already a two week garden..... then I remembered they put those circulation stockings on and I can't stand things on my legs after I shave them for like the first12 hours.... so I figured I would be miserable trying to figure out how to get under those to get to my legs to scratch....I guess I am waiting and will have to see what happens post-op

Heck after I went through the change the hair on the legs stopped growing. Too bad I can't say the same about the hair on my chinny, chin, chin.

I HATE getting old.

I shaved at 3 days post op and have shaved every 2 or 3 days since. I first tried to shave standing up in the shower and it was too hard to bend over. So at the end of the shower I just sat down in the empty tub and did it this way. It was still uncomfortable but I can't stand hairy legs in flannel pjs.
