Stitches After Childbirth Surgery Are Still Painful?
In the afternoon, r nDo you know, I was 11 days after the pregnancy operation, and the place of the operation was rather painful, but when I walked in and first sat down. Is that reasonable? Or what?
Hello Assyaf, Thank you for the question.
Complaints of pain that you experience is a natural thing to happen. When the doctor makes an incision in the skin, this incision causes damage to nerve endings on the surface of the skin. When the wound is in the process of recovery, scar tissue will begin to form slowly and this scar tissue can also cause pressure on the surrounding nerve endings. For this reason, you can still feel pain in the scars even after the wound is healing. In addition, pain in the wound can occur if an infection occurs in the wound. Changes in body position changes can trigger pain depending on the position of the wound in the body. If this pain does not occur continuously, does not increase, and there are no signs of infection in the wound (reddish skin, swelling, pus pushing, warm), there is nothing you need to worry about. You can consult your doctor again if you are still concerned about this. In the meantime, please continue to do wound care in accordance with doctor's advice. Keep the wound clean and dry. You can take pain medication given by your doctor, if you have one, or paracetamol to treat worsening pain.
I hope this helps,
