If your shower is flooding or not draining as fast as it should be, then the chances are that there is some form of blockage between your plughole and the drain. Plunging should remove any simple blockages, such as hair, and caustic soda, or a branded drain unblocking product, should shift most build ups of soap or dirt. But there are some blockages that cannot easily be removed by the homeowner.
Happily, most blockages will be able to removed by your plumber within an hour or two, with the use of a flexible hose or by taking some pipes apart by your plughole. If, however, the blockage is deeper down or is due to corroded pipes then it will take longer to remove and, in some cases, could be an all day job. This is because your plumber will have to investigate the pipes that run from your shower to the drain. They may have to unscrew sections of pipe or cut in to them to remove the blockage, as well as replacing any damaged pipework.
