I'm wondering if they will offer me one in the hospital or if I can. I go in on 2.3.12 to 2.6.12

Re: Shower

My surgery was very late in the afternoon, so the first morning I was just getting up and around - no shower. But the second morning, the nurse brought in towels and asked that I page them when I was intending to take my shower and again when I was finished.

Warning: you are probably not going to be able to spend a long time in the shower, even if there is a seat. Bring a 2-1 shampoo plus conditioner, if you use both. I wish I had!!

I showered about 6 hours after my tvh. I don't know the protocol on it but I am a shower nut and they let me as soon as I was able

Re: Shower

I didn't have a TAH but LAVH. I was able to shower once i had Ny cath out (that was the first time I stood up). But i didn't shower till I came home. I brought a dry shampoo to the hospital with me and wet ones. In case i didn't have the energy to shower but wanted to freshen up.

Re: Shower

I think it also depends on hospital protocol. But I can't believe the nurse just left you there by yourself.
