I was wondering if anyone had any tips on showering? My surgery is just a few days away. I got the hand out from the doctor that talks about showering daily after the first 48 hours, using your usual soap, and lathering just under the collar bone, letting the water wash the soap down but I thought maybe some of you who have done this would have some tips. Is there anything that made it easier? How soon could you shower without someone assisting you? I am a little afraid of the drying process (patting the incision areas dry) but I also am wondering about how to go about washing my hair when I can't lift my arms very high. I have people to help me for the first week and I bought some suave dry shampoo but would love to hear any other ideas that worked for people.
