The Cause Of The Caesarean Section 2 Years Ago Was Still Painful?
Hello … I have a caesarean scar but it has been 2 years, then I fell while taking a shower, when I coughed my caesarean wound looks like a new one. It hurts a lot … please explain, is the caesarean section torn … thanks ….
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
After more than 2 years, the cesarean section should have healed completely so that there are no longer any significant complaints.
However, an injury from a fall can cause over-stretching of the healed cesarean scar, causing pain. This pain does not necessarily indicate a cesarean scar that has torn back. This pain is more often caused by excessive stretching of the scar tissue which has lower elasticity than other skin cells in general. Coughing can cause the abdominal muscles to contract excessively, which can increase the pain that appears. As long as the pain that appears is only light in intensity, not accompanied by other complaints, such as bleeding scars, fever, vomiting, bowel problems, menstrual disorders, and so on, chances are your condition is not dangerous.
However, if the pain that appears is very severe, or is accompanied by other complaints as mentioned above, then there is nothing wrong with seeing a doctor, an internal medicine specialist, or a gynecologist. these arise due to other causes, such as muscle pain, skin infections, peritonitis, constipation, gastroenteritis, stones or bladder infections, hernias, obstructive ileus, and so on. With a direct doctor's examination, of course each of these possible causes can be identified early and given appropriate treatment. Supporting examinations, such as x-rays, ultrasound, and so on, the doctor may also do.
Currently, to reduce pain, try to live with the following tips first:
Compress the sore stomach area with warm water Do not over massage the painful abdominal area Use comfortable pants and clothes, not too tight Limit excessive movements that involve contracting the abdominal muscles, for example bending over, lifting or pushing heavy objects, running, going up and down stairs , etc. Take a bath diligently, clean the area where you were operating, don't rub it too hard. Get plenty of rest. Take paracetamol if necessary, so that the pain gets better.
