One of the reasons shaving in general for surgical wounds is not being done is that it creates more orotundity for infection at the site. Some surgeons here send patients home if they turn up for surgery having shaved the site themselves. I wonder if that is where their reluctance comes from. I shouldn't worry too much about bleeding, none of the stuff I read says that bleeding alone means there is infection. It always seems to be accompanied by other indicators. Also the location means the area is forever being damaged no matter how much we restrict our movements. There's almost noting you can do without twisting and stretching the flesh down there. Also, everybody is different n terms of how much blood is pumped into the wound. Some of us have bodies that push too much healing blood to the site, flooding it with collagen. That's why some people develop keloid scars, it is just over healing of the body. I think that, in view of what you have been through, you are doing remarkably well.
