I had my 3rd C-section on Feb 6th (a little over 2 months ago) and I just noticed a loop of string (like fishing line) sticking out of my incision scar. I was able to pull one end free, which is about 2 inches long, but the other end is still attached to the other end of my incision. I can pull on it and see the other end of my incision move. Weird?! I remember having this happen with my last c-section but I was able to pull it out. This time it's really attached and hurts to pull on it.

Any ideas? Should I go to my doc? Other than this, my c-section went great so I don't want to scare anyone.

Thanks,

Beth.

Ouch! I did not have that happen, but if it hurts to pull, I'd see your doctor. Hang in there, hope that helps!
