How Are The Surgical Sutures Treated With Holes?
1 month ago I gave birth by caesarean section I want to ask, why did the stitch marks of my surgery have holes? Like a small hole, like a teaspoon of water coming out of the hole and the feeling doesn’t hurt. I’m afraid that the hole will widen. how should i treat it? Is this dangerous for me?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. After the surgery, the cut or wound that is made must be closed using stitches. Some stitches are meant for the internal organs and can be absorbed by the body, and some are for the outside or the skin and must be removed after the skin is completely reattached.
In determining how many stitches are needed there is also a consideration, the goal is that there is no open space that can be a channel for bacteria outside the body to enter and vice versa, so that no body fluids can come out. In your case, the chances are that one of the suture threads breaks prematurely, so the stitches don't close tightly. This can occur due to repeated friction, or large pressure from the stomach such as pushing, coughing, lifting heavy weights, or other activities that are done prematurely.
But of course, to be sure it needs to be seen firsthand how big the hole is, what kind of liquid is coming out, and whether it can close itself or need some other action. Our advice, you can check with a general practitioner or directly to the doctor who treats you at that time, to be seen immediately and plan for further action.
Meanwhile, keep clean, consume more protein-rich foods to speed up the healing process, and don't apply drugs or take drugs without a doctor's recommendation. So, hopefully it answers your question.
