The Cesarean Section Is Hollow And Bleeding?
Good evening, I’m farwan, sorry to ask, didn’t my wife take off the bandage after 1 week of cesarean then there was a thread that was cut and now it’s perforated and bleeding is dangerous or what, and has to clean the cesarean wound with betadine or just cover it with gauze, thank you
Good morning Farwan, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. After any surgery, the patient is usually asked for a check-up to see if the surgical wound has dried up or not. If it is judged to have dried, the sutures will be removed and so on, the wound does not need to be closed. However, if it is judged to be still wet, the gauze will be replaced with a new one and the patient is asked to check again while being asked to keep an eye on the surgical wound.
In the case of your wife when the wound bleeds again after the thread is cut and the bandage is removed, our advice is to immediately return to the doctor who treated your wife, especially if the bleeding does not stop or there is pus and the like.
Meanwhile, all you can do is clean the wound, and apply gauze to the bleeding area. After a few minutes of pressing on the wound, try to lift the gauze and see if the bleeding continues. If it persists, cover the wound with gauze and check with your wife to the doctor. To help heal wounds, you should increase the consumption of eggs, milk, cheese, yogurt, fish and chicken breast. I hope you and your family are always healthy.
That's all, hope it helps.
