Potential Cesarean Section Suture Wound Was Broken?
After the baby is removed from the stomach then the abdomen is sewn back right, the stitching is layered. Starting from the uterus, muscles, fat, etc. I want to ask, is it possible that the topmost layer close to the skin of the stomach can break off the seams? (in the case of the patient, check that the wound inside has not yet been completely integrated). thank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The potential for broken stitches is always there, regardless of where the stitches are made. That is why, doctors must be careful when sewing the wound and make sure the stitches are strong then proceed to the next stage. From the patient's point of view, this is also the importance of treating wounds by not lifting heavy loads, carrying out strenuous activities, increasing bed rest, not straining too strongly and following other recommendations given by doctors. Because if you force your body prematurely, the stitches are very likely to come off.
If it is released, bleeding and infection can occur. It is characterized by inflammation in the form of redness, pain, swelling and other discomfort that is focused on the area of the former operation. If this happens, then what you can do is go back to the doctor who operated on you to have the wound condition checked. The doctor will determine the next step depending on the condition of the wound.
The important thing is again, follow your obstetrician's advice post-surgery. And if there are things you are confused about, you better ask directly to avoid misunderstandings. Avoid emphasis on the stomach, and keep the scars dry and clean. So, hopefully answering your question.
