First shower after drains are removed

I have read so many posts about the first shower after drains are removed is wonderful. So last night I was so excited to get in the shower and it was terrible! I could not touch my stomach, I could not bend down to wash my legs, and I hate the way my stomach is numb when the water sprayed on the front of me.  Am I the only one that feels this way? Is everyone using soap on your stomach and touching the incision/strips. Maybe the second shower will be better - maybe they are better in the morning? I would love to hear what soap you are using and how you are feeling when you take a shower! Kat
