How To Treat Bartholin Cyst Surgery Scars During The Puerperium?
Morning, I want to ask 2 days ago I just had a surgical procedure to remove a bartholin cyst. Now I happen to be in the puerperium … who want to ask me whether puerperal blood is not dangerous for the surgical wound ?? then how is the right way to treat the wound from the surgery while still in the postpartum period, the problem is that my surgical wound was bandaged, and the bandage had blood and only had to be re-controlled in 3 days … please enlighten me
Thank you for the question.
Bartholin cysts are formed when the Bartholin gland, which is the gland in charge of producing vaginal lubricating fluid, is blocked by ducts, causing inflammation to form cysts. This condition is often harmless. However, when enlarged, these cysts can be painful and obviously very disturbing activities of sufferers. It could also be a secondary cyst that forms an abscess that is more difficult to treat. It is for these various considerations that doctors can operate.
If there are indications that require it, there is no problem doing Bartholin cyst surgery while still in the puerperium. It's just that, indeed you need to take extra care of your former surgery. Because, puerperal blood can make your genital condition more moist, making it vulnerable to infection. This infection can obviously hamper postoperative wound healing.
In order for your scars to heal faster, what you need to do is:
Take the post-operative treatment according to the doctor's advice Clean your wounds as recommended by your doctor (usually using sterile gauze soaked with NaCl liquid). Get plenty of rest. Drink plenty of water too. Eat lots of protein-rich foods. Don't like to hold urination. Always wear underwear and clothes. clean, loose, and soft ingredients Limit first sexual intercourse before your former surgery heals Feed your baby breast milk, unless the doctor recommends something else to you Do not forget, on the recommended schedule, you should also control your former surgery to the doctor or obstetrician . Thus, the condition of your surgical scar can be better evaluated and given the right treatment to heal more fully.
Hope this helps ...
