    If you can avoid it then don't. Or do it under the shower. Healing comes first.

    Do remember your shoulder is banjaxed, don't reach up to your noggin, er, noggin, with the knackered one in the throws of a warm soapy deluge.

    Are you able to wash it with a shower attachment or a mug over the bath. Wear a raincoat to keep your shoulder dry

    Don't worry, I wont forget!! I'm going to get a sling made up with a bandage first, then do the same after with a dry bandage so the p[roper sling can be washed!!!

    Tomorrow is a rest day as I've done a fair bit today, so it'll be, get clean then a sofa day while the proper sling dries, then back into the real one when it isnt smelly and yucky!!!!

    Sadly, here it isn't particularly easy to sort, hence going to the hairdresser. It's not just where and how (there's no bath here), but I'm really not comfortable leaning forward for very long - all the wrong pressures through then new bit!!

    but it's a reasonably roomy shower, so we're going to angle the shower to the good side and cover the scar so I can wash my hair without getting it wet and have a 'light' shower as well. Which will be really nice!!!

    Good, a sensible and practical solution. In the grand scheme of things a few weeks of inconvenience is neither here nor there.

    Agreed! one full month now!! already bored, especially with the bastard compression socks that everyone has a different answer for the question "how long do I have to wear these?".

    TBH - if I could get rid of those, I'd be a much happier bird!! I get the arm thing and will do everything right to get that to heal well. The socks seem pointless given that I'm pretty mobile!! When I needed them was the time before the operation when I really was virtually immobile!!! But no one suggested them then!!

    I'm amazed there hasn't been a queue of volunteers to help you shower properly
