    Hi all, i got the all clear to shower at 2 weeks post op. I was terrified of having my first shower because i actually thought it would hurt getting any water on my incision. I’ve had three showers so far and i’m just not feeling super comfortable with it. I am so worried about getting too much water on my incisions and i really don’t like bending down or over to shave. I’m literally having to have quick showers for my hair and then half baths for the shaving.

    Is anyone else struggling a little with this? or am i just being weird and need to get over it? lol

    Hi Hun I was aloud to shower one week post op well 8 days! I have a shallow bath to shave then have a shower rather then bending Al over! I was my hair and lean back a bit as conscious of getting my boobs soaked!! But I do run some water on them! I them dab them dry but I still use Sanex 0%! Hope this helps! Doesn’t matter if shampoo goes on them but make sure you clear with clean water xxz

    @alicelucy21 I did shallow baths once my arms were strong enough to pull me out. I used baby wipes and cleansing wipes on my top half…avoided the incision area obviously. I also had my boyfriend washing my hair for the first week, he was surprisingly good for someone who’d never done it before lol. x

    I’ve been showering as normal from 8 days post op girls. Been running water over them and everything. I’m 3 weeks post op now and I feel great. Incisions have almost disappeared. Take a look at my pics on my profile xx

    Hey I’m 2 weeks post op! And I was exactly the same as you! But it gets easier! I just have a shallow bath to shave my legs and shower with sanex 0% and hibiscub (antibacterial shower gel) and went I get out the shower I gently wipe with an antibacterial wipe! I wouldn’t wash my hair in the shower though, all the shampoo/conditioner running into my incisions I don’t think that, but that’s just me lol! I lean over the bath to do that x
