Further to my earlier post a couple days ago I had a slight blip and just wanted to mention on here for those who are due to have a lap soon. But don't take it as gospel as each person is individual!
Basically, I had my first shower last night, 2 days after my Lap. I asked my husband to sit in bathroom with me to help me and had read I may feel a little light headed in first shower. I managed to shower, got out and dried then took off the dressings which were wet to replace with new fresh ones. However straight after taking off the dressings I felt very hot, light headed and nauseous. I quickly sat on the toilet and my husband stood infront holding me up and I could feel my head getting heavier but lighter at same time and hotter. Next thing I knew I was waking up on the floor with my husband saying "it's ok you are on the bathroom floor, you passed out, but you are ok!" Not nice at all! Took me ages to get back up off floor, new dressings on and getting dressed myself..all of which my super hero husband helped me! Without him being there I would have hit my head and goodness knows then where I would be!
Today I still feeling heavy/light headed, whoozy feeling but nowhere near as bad as last night!
My tip when it says on info for after care that you may want someone with you when you first have a shower after your Lap DO! You need a shower hero!
