Re: I am a mess

I would assume they would shave you only because they informed me that I will be shaved if need be and I am having abdominal incision, sooooo needless to say I took care of that for them. I had my eyebrows done yesterday. So funny how we make sure every little thing is taken care of.

Re: I am a mess

I was told NOT to shave anything a week out -- that if they need to, they will once you're out but they didn't want the risk of knick / infections. Bikini wax was an option but nothing with potential cuts.

Re: I am a mess

Why abdominal?

When I had my csections I told them I took care of it.

I know they say to not shave day before because of infection.

Re: I am a mess

Nobody said anything about not shaving I figured if they were going to do it I would help them out, I have a lot of adhesions and scar tissue for them to do it any other way.

No I had a lap done 2 years ago to see what was going on in there and doc said the adhesions were bad
