Last night we noticed that part of my wound was swollen and raised, I had noticed that it became uncomfy if anything rubbed on it. Today, whilst at my parents I spotted that it was weeping puss (not nice i know) and bleeding slightly. Gareth just mentioned that he caught it with my electric razor last night whilst "tidying me up!"
I have just put some tea tree oil on it and its not hurting at the mo. Just wondered if anyone else had experienced this?
Hi, i was prgnant 15 months after my c section with ethan and have to admit i can't remember it causing me any problems. I'd keep an eye on it and if it's still weeping, definately get it checked out on monday.
I think your bump is already bigger than mine ever got ( i mean that in a nice way) so it could just be stretching! Does it normally itch, hurt or bother you, how well did it heal after bronwyn was born? xx xx
It hasn't itched or been painful since I had the infection there 4 weeks after my section. I knew what you meant Tasha!
I am going to get a docs apt on monday as i need to get it checked out.
I cant offer any advice Hun but hope that its better by Monday
LOL caroline with the woman in the shop.
Not haveing a section myself but id defo agree with the others in getting it checked sooner but hope all is well.
How's things today? xx xx
Sorry Ladies, i vanished last night as i felt a bit yucky!!
My wound has stopped weeping and feels ok today. I have put more tea tree oil on it. I am not ringing the maternity ward as I can't face a 55 minute drive there and back only to be told that its fine! After my farcical visit to the "specialist" on friday I have lost faith!!
P.s What happened on Friday!
We went to the hospital to see the specialist. I had done a glucose tolerance test 2 weeks ago. My apppointment was for 10.15, the staff came in and out asking who was next. Bearing in mind there is no reception and booking in system it was chaos! The midwives and staff had no idea who was seeing a midwife, the specialist or having a scan. We were finally ushered through at 11.30 only to have my wee tested and blood pressure done. Then they went to get my test results and had lost 1! 20 mins later they returned with the lost result, it was fine (as i knew it would be). They measured my bump - 4 or 5 weeks ahead still and sent me on my way! My midwife at the docs could have done that in half or quarter of the time without my having to drive 30 mins each way!! Never saw the specialist, no idea why we had an appointment!!!!
