Former Stitches Become Flesh During Normal Childbirth?
, Sodara I gave birth last Saturday. The process is spontaneous and normal in episiotomy, Age 29th, what I want to ask, is the thread used for stitching epis sores always become flesh or is there also a thread that is dislodged by itself? Because my siblings on the 4th and 6th days when (sorry) the worm found a stitch thread coming off along the curleb half or 1 cm. Please explain … Thanks in advance, doctor.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Episiotomy wounds can be sewn with threads that can be absorbed by themselves and become flesh (sometimes they can be detached on their own), can also be sewn with threads that cannot be absorbed and need to be removed. Generally episiotomy wounds will close and heal within 1-2 weeks if there are no complications. If the thread is loose and the wound closes properly, there is nothing to worry about by your brother. If your brother sees or feels his episiotomic wounds have not completely closed properly, you should advise your brother to check him back to the obstetrician who helped with the delivery.
To help speed up the healing of episiotomic wounds, your brother can do sitz bath regularly. Sitz bath is soaking the perineum area in warm water for 15-20 minutes, 3-4 times a day. Make sure your siblings also thoroughly clean the area of their genitals after bowel and bladder, and dry the area of the perineum well before using underwear again. Since your brother is still in the postpartum period, it is also advisable to replace the pads every 3-4 hours, or if the pads have been wet with blood and fluid.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
