My sisters are doing well. Thanks for asking.
That sounds like a good plan for when to go back to school. I'm glad you don't need to worry about it and can just focus on you.
I didn't even think of underarms! I don't have any hair on mine so I forget other people do. I could be wrong, but I don't think you'll want to shave much after surgery. It's awfully close to your incisions and you most likely will be numb in that area--at least my sister is. Johns Hopkins says to use an electric razor if you must shave.
