Re: shaving

Took me a week until I thought I could do it. My legs were driving me crazy. They looked like little forests. I had a RALH with a bowel resection. It might take longer with the big incision.

Re: shaving

I am also wondering. I only have two tiny incisions and can only take showers. I feel so "gross".

Re: shaving

Had partial hyst. with 6" bikini cut. Got home from castle on a thursday and shaved on sunday in the shower. Went real slow and didn't worry if I missed a few. Felt so much better after but may not be for everyone. Would ask doctor if you are worried.

Re: shaving

I shaved after a few days. No baths of course so I sat on the side of the tub and put my foot on the other side so I didn't have to bend too much. I left the water running so I could rinse the razor. I don't have a seat in the shower so this was my only option.

Re: shaving

I used Veet rather than shaving. Was so much easier and I did not have to worry about cutting myself. My balance was horrible and I sat on the side of the tub to do this. Even though I was exhausted, I felt so much better with smooth legs and no nicks. Hugs

Re: shaving

I always shave in the shower but I have to say that the first time it hurt to bend over long enough. Think I made it a week or so.
