Hello, thanks for the question.
Cesarean section or cesarean section (SC) is a labor procedure performed if vaginal delivery or normal delivery is not possible or poses a risk to the health and safety of the mother and baby. This procedure is one method of giving birth to a baby by making an incision to open the stomach (laparatomy) and open the uterus (hysterotomy). Healing postpartum wounds by cesarean section is longer than normal delivery, the total healing can take up to several weeks to months. After a cesarean section, the doctor will usually advise to control the suture, the aim is to see the healing process and control if there are complications. The most common complication is infection, which is characterized by pain, redness, swelling, wetness, discharge, blood, festering, or high fever. Infected wounds will be difficult to heal or healing will take a long time, the stitches can be opened again, or can cause bleeding so sometimes it is necessary to re-operate to deal with the infection. If there are signs of infection as mentioned above, you should consult your obstetrician who is operating on you, the doctor will conduct an examination and assess the wound condition and severity of the infection that occurs and determine the appropriate treatment to deal with the infection. Your doctor may prescribe pain relievers, antibiotics to prevent and treat bacterial infections, and other medicines as needed, or take certain medical procedures if needed. To speed healing, it is recommended to maintain the cleanliness of the surgical wound area, keep the wound clean and dry, get adequate rest, avoid strenuous activities, keep your health coughing or straining too hard, and also recommended not to lift heavy objects. Eat healthy and nutritious foods, especially high-fiber foods to prevent straining during bowel movements, and regular control to the doctor and consumption of drugs prescribed according to doctor's recommendations.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
