Sounds as if you're doing ok....Welcome to the site and welcome to the other side! Now, start healing up and moving foward....
I moved that cath bag and tape everyday from leg to leg after my shower. That first shower was the best, the day I got home.....dont know what your story is, if the doc told you not to or what....but keep an eye on that tape if you're not changing it, it can make you sore. Shave the hair on the side of your thighs so the tape is not so uncomfortable when taking it off. It's not bad....good luck and again, welcome to this side....
