Pain On The Inside Of A Caesarean Scar?
Hello … I want to ask about 1 year ago, I was born by caesarean section … for 1 year I have no complaints. But today I feel pain in my stomach … Is this dangerous or not?
Hello Susi Bdoel,
Cesarean section is an operation to remove the fetus by making an incision through the abdomen to the uterus. Cesarean section is performed in certain pregnancy cases such as fetal distress, narrow pelvis, transverse fetal position, placenta previa, severe preeclampsia, and so forth. Healing after cesarean section generally occurs within 4-6 weeks. The following are the things that must be considered after a cesarean section:
Do not do activities or strenuous exercise for a while
Bedrest on the first day, then can do a gradual mobilization, tilt right and left, sit, then walk so that the bowel movement is good. A good bowel movement can prevent constipation so as not to push hard which can cause pain in the surgical wound
Keep the surgical scarring bandage dry, not exposed to water
Consumption of nutritious foods that are high in protein and vitamin C
Like other major operations, cesarean section also has risks and complications that generally occur in the near term after surgery such as bleeding bleeding, surgical site infections, injury to other organs, side effects of drugs, and so on. Lower abdominal pain with a long history of cesarean section can be associated with scar tissue that arises due to an incision in the uterus or can also be caused by causes that are not related to cesarean section. Some of the causes of pain associated with a history of cesarean section include:
Adhesion or scar tissue attachment to the surrounding tissue
Granuloma in the incision area
Hematoma due to bleeding
You can apply warm compresses over the painful abdominal area. If necessary you can also take pain relievers. If the pain persists and does not decrease despite taking pain medication, you should do an examination with an obstetrician. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
