Shave My Urethra?
This is what I use. What's not to like. I mean it rhymes with..... and it's turquoise.
I am going to the OR tomorrow (Thursday) and so I just spoke with a nurse in PAT again to question about shaving because I knew there was a rule about no shaving on the day of surgery. ( I always do it the night before and just before going to bed.) I think because you run the risk of introducing infection at the surgical site.
So I asked her about shaving and she said you can shave but not at the surgical site.
I said it's my urethra.
With both of us laughing heartily, she said... if you can do THAT...you're g-o-o-d!
To which I said...I have hair every where but ...I just can't find a shaver that won't nick me there. ..but when I do-o-o... more laughter and good-bye. ;)
I have a feeling that was probably one of her funniest PAT conversations for the day. :) LOL!!!
Now there's an image! Sheesh! I don't know which is worse... having a hairy urethra or shaving it. Both frightening thoughts! ;)
Especially with me wielding a shaver. I nicked myself so badly the other morning that it looked like a scene from psycho. No...I Don't think I'll be shaving my urethra any time soon. I want to keep Bajingoland in tact! ;)
*I'll be back later with a post about my pre-OR routines...which is the point of the post...that anyone should have a pre OR routine.???
