Cesarean Scars Still Hurt After 3 Months Of Labor?
Good night, I have been operating for 3 months now, the pain is still there and lately it is often very painful, suddenly just in my pants there was a bloodstain, it turned out that the middle of the connection was wet and there was fluid coming out, is it dangerous or not?
Good morning Ms. Santi, thank you for the question.
SC surgery is one of the choices of labor procedures if there are certain factors that make it difficult to have a normal delivery, such as if the baby is too big, the mother's pelvis is narrow, the placenta is blocking the birth canal (placenta previa), the breech baby's position, the mother has a medical condition heart related or preeclampsia, etc. so SC surgery is an option. However, when compared to normal childbirth, the recovery period after SC does take longer and has some risks after undergoing this SC procedure, including:
- postoperative pain that lasts for several weeks postoperatively
- blood clots in the legs or lungs
- lost a lot of blood
- effects after anesthesia, such as nausea, vomiting, headache
- risk of injury to other organs
- scarring arises in the former surgical incision
Generally after undergoing SC in about 4-6 weeks the recovery of pain will begin to decrease and the wound will begin to heal and dry out, but in some people it can happen for a longer time. However, if the pain is also accompanied by other complaints, which are felt differently from before, especially if the condition of the surgical scar does not go dry and is still draining fluid or pus, then it is better for you to have a check up and consult with a gynecologist. The doctor can do a thorough examination by looking at the scars from your surgery, your birth canal related to complaints of spotting of blood to see if there are anything suspicious or not, besides that the doctor can also do an ultrasound examination to see the condition of the inside of the uterus if it is felt necessary . So you can get the right action.
Some tips after undergoing SC surgery that can be done, including:
- Avoid heavy activities
- after SC surgery, although it feels painful when walking try to walk little by little.
- enough sleep
- Don't lift heavy things
-If bleeding, use pads
- if after surgery CHAPTER becomes irregular, avoid straining when constipated.
- pay attention to cut wounds, clean it every day with warm water and soap, avoid cleaning products such as hydrogen peroxide because it will slow down wound healing. dressing with gauze to avoid friction with clothes, change gauze every day and try to keep the area around the wound dry.
Thus the information we can convey, thank you.
