My 1st Shower
I took my first shower today...... It was a very surreal moment. Bandages gone, drain tube gone, breast gone. All I could do is look at myself in the mirror. The last shower I took was the morning of my surgery. I had to wash with that special stuff the Dr. gave me so it would reduce infection. I had smelled like medicine ..lol Today I was able to wash with my own shower gel. As I stepped into the shower I was kinda scared to get the right side wet. I am still numb in that area and under my arm. I was happy with my body. I was very proud of the body I had at the age of 41, especially my breast.. I really really liked them. Now I have to get use to this new body. I know I will have a new breast soon but its not the same. The shower felt good. I didn't do much with the "right"side because it is still healing so I just washed around it. I'm praying my test comes back that I don't need chemo or radiation. This going too take some time getting use to.
