Can I shower 5 days after a c section; Is there anything in particular I should or shouldn't do?

In brief: Yes

you can shower. You should have a list of things you can and can't do from your surgeon, if not call the office to get one.
You just had major abdominal surgery. No lifting, no vacuuming, no driving for 2 weeks, no intercourse for 4-6 weeks, no tampons, no strenuous exercise, you should walk daily. Those are just a few.
