Post biopsy & diagnosis distress


Asking on behalf of my wife, who is strong and wonderful, but struggling with some aspects of this new world we have been thrown into.

Has anyone any experience of distress when showering/bathing after a breast biopsy & diagnosis. Biopsy was two weeks ago and we now have a confirmed diagnosis. Managed to get one set of steristrips off last night but it is very distressing and upsetting and every time we are showering th emotional aspect of things is very difficult for her.

Anything we can do? Or try?

This seems like an amazing forum full of strong, inspirational people.
