Overcoming Normal Postnatal Sutures That Are Loose After 6 Days Of Delivery?
Hello, I want to ask … I have had spontaneous post-delivery for 6 days and all the outer seams in the skin have been removed. Can the network come together without being re-stitched?
Hello Risma, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself that Rio will try to answer your question.
Tears that occur during childbirth can occur spontaneously and some are intentional to give way when the baby will be born. Normally tears and stitches during spontaneous childbirth will return to normal within 1-2 weeks. But sometimes there are also those who experience torn wounds or open stitches again, and this healing will take even longer.
In the sewing process, some use a sewing thread that must be removed again after the tear wound is fused and some can be directly absorbed into the skin. If the stitches are supposed to be opened within the allotted time, but are damaged or removed, not necessarily everything has to be re-stitched like after the birth process. To determine the need for re-stitching, a doctor / midwife must be examined directly to determine whether or not a new tissue has formed in the wound.
In the recovery of wounds caused by tears during childbirth, the most important thing to consider is to keep the area clean. This can be done by washing hands before and after examining stitches, keeping the body clean by bathing at least once a day, leaving your stitches exposed to air for at least 10 minutes twice a day, changing post-delivery pads regularly, avoiding wearing tight pants, avoid straining too much strong when defecating, consume foods rich in fiber such as fruits and vegetables, whole wheat bread, and lots of water.
Currently what you can do in order to accelerate the recovery of wounds is like:
Be careful when walking or sitting Do not force strongly when defecating Maintain hygiene around the wound Eat nutritious foods especially those containing high fiber Drink plenty of water Compress cold water / ice around the wound seams to reduce itching / swelling Perform Gymnastics Kegel to strengthen muscles, accelerate healing, and facilitate blood flow. Consult a doctor or midwife if you experience complaints in the area of the suture wound that interferes with activity. That's all the answers I can give, hopefully it helps.
Thank you :)
